Four states — Bauchi, Adamawa, Plateau and Sokoto state — do not have a clear cut governors elect following the inconclusive nature of the guber polls.
In all these states, the margin of win has been smaller than the number of cancelled votes, narrowing the race to any of the top two candidates game to take.
Margin of lead between PDP and APC: 4059
Cancelled Votes: 45,312
INEC therefore declared the state guber election inconclusive.
PDP: 367, 471

Andrew Haruna, the state returning officer, said votes were cancelled in 44 polling units across the state.
