Anxiety as Kontagora awaits new Emir + full list of contestants

The election of the new Emir of Kontagora Emirate has been concluded.

The Nation reports the new Emir would be announced by Governor Abubakar Sani-Bello any moment from now.

Speaking shortly after the conclusion of the election, the Chairman of Kontagora local government area, Alhaji Shehu Fawa, said the election was conducted peacefully and in orderly manner.

The Chairman said that only the Governor has the mandate to declare the winner who would be the substantive new Emir.

Efforts to reach the Secretary and Chairman of the electoral committee set up by the king makers were not successful as neither of them accepted to speak on the matter.
