By Yakubu Uba

Hajiya Inna Galadima of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been declared Chairman-elect of Jere Local Government Area (LGA) of Borno.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Galadima’s emergence automatically makes her the first female to be elected council chairman in the state.

Galadima, a onetime commissioner and special adviser in Borno was declared winner by the Returning Officer of Jere LGA, Prof. Mohammed Konto.

Konto said Galadima scored 110,459 votes to defeat her closest rival in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who scored 2,478 votes.

Results from other LGAs in the Saturday’s election have started trickling in, with APC candidates in the lead. (NAN)
