The PDP governorship candidate also said even when the announcement of the election results went through several postponements and lingered for too long, the people patiently and peacefully waited.


While appreciating them for the passion, support and guidance provided him, Ashiru urged all supporters and those who desire genuine leadership in Kaduna State to remain calm and peaceful.


He said xtraying and entire electoral process, including the results announced which totally did not reflect the wish of majority of voters, will form the basis for future actions that could be taken by him and the party.


Similarly, the Candidate of the Labour Party, LP, in the Saturday’s Governorship election, Mr Jonathan Asake has thanked supporters, Campaign Council members, support groups, leadership and members of the party and electorate for what he termed ‘huge sacrifice’ during campaigns and elections.


In a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen, Mr Asake said although the outcome of the elections might not have met supporters’ expectations due to observable irregularities, the party is consulting and reviewing the entire exercise with a view to taking a position and making it known to the public.


He enjoined all to remain calm and orderly in the face of the election outcome.
