The candidate for the presidency of the PPD wins his own voting unit by landslide

Christopher Zakka, the candidate for president of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) elections, has defeated his closest rival and All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Murtala Karshi, alias Yamarayi, in his electoral unit. Mr. Zakka alias Maikalangu recorded the resounding victory in his 004 voting unit in Ecwa Church Garki village. The unit chairman counted 183 votes in favor of Mr. Zakka against the 11 votes obtained by Mr. Karshi of the APC. The PDP also won the council election in the unit with 155 votes, while the APC got only 32 votes. Efforts are being made to get results from Mr. Karshi’s voting drive. The Supreme Court confirmed Mr. Karshi as the APC’s presidential candidate on Thursday, just 48 hours before local elections are to be held in the FCT’s six council areas on Saturday. The Supreme Court verdict resolved the party’s internal rancor that had left it without a definitive candidate for the presidency of AMAC, the council area that houses Nigeria’s seat of power, until just two days before the election. The president of AMAC calls on voters to calm down Meanwhile, outgoing AMAC President Abdullahi Candido, also of APC, urged voters on Saturday to remain calm as they vote for their preferred candidates in the FCT Area Council polls. The chairman said this after casting his vote at around 11:20 am at polling unit 002, Jiwa district in the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) on Saturday.
