When asked if FCT, Abuja elections results were cancelled following Saturday’s vote, Mahmood stated categorically that no election result was cancelled.

According to Yakubu: “To be honest I am hearing this for the first time. We have cancelled no elections not in the FCT, not anywhere in the country.

“Under the laws we are waiting for the returning officers to make the declaration and past it to the judiciary to make the final declaration.

“There is one senatorial seat and two federal constituencies in the FCT. We only collate the result for the presidential election and we look at it in the context of a nationwide no election results have been cancelled in the Federal Capital Territory or any part of Nigeria for that matter.”
