Kogi Governorship Election: APC candidate, Yahaya Bello in 'BIG LEAD' | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


The Peoples Democratic Party has raised objections to some of the results announced for the governorship election in Kogi state, in which the incumbent, Yahaya Bello is in a very big lead.

Out of the 16 local government results declared so far, Bello has beaten his PDP challenger, Engineer Musa Wada in 11 out of 16, winning in two of them , Okene and Adavi, with large margins. There are five local governments left to be declared including the capital, Lokoja.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rejected the results for Adavi and Okene.

At the INEC collation office in Lokoja, the PDP agent, Mr. Joe Agada said the figures were outrageous.

In Adavi, APC polled – 64,657 votes, while the PDP polled – 366 votes. In Okene, the APC polled 112,762 votes while the PDP got a miserable 139 votes.

Mr. Agada’s contention was that the turnout of voters was suspicious as it ran against what was recorded in the presidential election in February.

He urged INEC to reject the results.

Professor Ibrahim Umar, the Returning Officer of the Kogi Governorship election, asked the PDP agent to put his observations and complaints to paper, and file it at the appropriate quarters.

Prof. Umar is the Vice-Chancellor of the Ahmadu Bello University.
