Mukhtar said the margin of votes that separates the two parties in the election was far below the total of number of 75,000 registered voters where cancellations were effected in 136 polling units across 22 LGs

“Considering the party with the highest votes which margin is 3,415 above its opponent and is too narrow and far below the cancelled registered voters, I hereby declare the exercise inconclusive.”
