Babagana Umara Zulum, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been declared winner of the Borno State governorship election.

Zulum, a professor of irrigation engineering, polled 1,175, 440 votes to defeat Mohammed Imam, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who came second with a meagre 66,115 votes.

This is some astounding victory, as the margin between Umara-Zulum and Imam is precisely 1,109,325 votes.

Umara-Zulum is the anointed of outgoing Governor of the state, Kashim Shettima, who appointed him into his cabinet as a commissioner.
