Nasiru Jagaba emerges Coordinator after beating Caleb M.D. Kantiyok (CMD) in a keenly contested Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) Youth Wing contest which saw Jagaba beating Kantiyok by a meager four (4) votes.

The election which started Saturday 13th February, 2016 at the New Choice Hall Kafanchan, Kaduna State, was declared inconclusive (as is the norm in the country).

Below are the final results after the supplementary elections showing the candidates, the positions they contested for and the total votes they got:

  1. Coordinator
