Now that Tambuwal has won, is democracy still in trouble?

Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state has just declared the winner of the Sokoto governorship election.

Tambuwal narrowly clinched victory with just 341 votes, to defeat the Ahmad Aliyu of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

In the supplementary election results announced on Sunday, the incumbent governor got 512,002 votes in total, while APC’SLs Aliyu got 511,661.

Congratulatory messages have since started pouring in, from all over Nigeria, as the governor who stood little chance proved his naysayers wrong.

Although some supporters of president Muhammadu Buhari, have taken to social media to mock the PDP, for what they termed “hypocrisy” of crying foul whenever their party loses.

Some reactions below

Tambuwal won with just 341 votes, the election was perfect and when Ganduje is coasting to victory, it is tagged as been rigged by @OfficialPDPNig. Useless fellows

Tambuwal is a sitting governor. He won the supplementary election with a very slim margin. I’m not seeing “democracy is dead” comments from the usual people. You people don’t want democracy, you just want PDP.
