PDP supporters storm Emir of Kano’s Palace over inconclusive poll

Thousands of supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano are currently protesting at the Palace of the Emir of Kano following the declaration of the governorship election in the state inconclusive.
The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Abba Yusuf, won the majority of votes announced as he polled a total of 1,014,474 votes while the incumbent governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) finished a close second with a total of 987,819 votes.
However, Yusuf’s lead margin of 26,655 votes were less than the 128,572 votes that were cancelled from the March 9 election.
According to a Twitter user, @dadiyata, the protesters are “seeking for GOD’s intervention & eternal damnation of those attempting to temper with the people’s mandate.”
