The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the election for the Takai constituency seat in the Kano State House of Assembly as inconclusive.

Despite these results, the election was declared inconclusive because voting was canceled in five polling units due to over-voting and electoral malpractices.

As a result, the election will be conducted again in the five polling units.

Meanwhile, INEC has declared Mr Garba Gwarmai of the APC as the winner of the Tsanyawa/Kuchi constituency seat in the Kano State House of Assembly.
