Kaita, who is a member of the House of Representatives, representing Kankia/Kusada/Ingawa federal constituency, beat his elder brother, Kabir Babba Kaita of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, who scored 59,724 votes.

According to Prof. Abdullahi, “GPN scored 1056, DA got 796, MPN secured 633 while MMN got 343 votes to emerge third, fourth, fifth and sixth respectively”.

THISDAY recalls that the senatorial seat became vacant in April, 2018 following the death of Senator Mustapha Bukar, hence the by-election by INEC to fill in the vacant seat.
