Arabu said, “The results from 10 wards out of the 11 wards were collated in Nasarawa Local Government before the disruption.

“We have invited the representatives of all the political parties to witness the regeneration of the results as we enter it into the necessary forms since they also have copies of these results from the polling units up to the wards.
