Following the PDP’s victory in the elections, the party has won a total of 31 seats in the State House of Assembly while the Social Democratic Party (SDP) claiming one seat.

INEC had failed to announce the winners in the constituencies for various reasons after the governorship and State House of Assembly elections which held on March 9.

They include inconclusive election as a result of the margin of lead, non-deployment of electoral officials and materials, and disruption of the exercise.
