The candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has won the rerun election for Magama/Rijau Federal Constituency in Niger State.

The election, held on Saturday, saw APGA defeating ADC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

APGA’s candidate, Salihu Salleh polled a total of 22,965 votes to beat his closet challenger, Emmanuel Alamu Endoza of PDP who polled 22,507 votes and the ADC candidate Halilu Yussuf who scored 316 votes.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) did not participate in the election having been disqualified by the court.
