Katsina PDP rejects bye-election outcome, pledges to approach election tribunal

The Katsina state section of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it will challenge the aftereffects of Katsina North senatorial district bye-election of Saturday, August 11 in which the All Progressives Congress (APC) drifted home to triumph. 

Punch reports that Salisu Majigiri, the state executive of the party, said on Sunday, August 12, that the party would take its case to the election tribunal. IYB gathered that Majigiri asserted that the bye-election was loaded with "vote-buying, coercion and different disparities".
