Kogi Election: PDP vows to challenge result


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the Kogi State governorship election, Engr. Musa Wada, has rejected the result of the election announced so far by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

According to DAILY POST, the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, who is also the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last Saturday governorship election, is leading with a very wide margin in the results announced so far.

Governor Bello is ahead of the other 23 candidates with over 200, 000 votes margin in 15 out of the 21 local government areas where results have been officially announced.

Addressing newsmen in Lokoja on Sunday, Engr. Musa Wada, said the results announced so far were being written to favoure the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Wada who accused APC of changing result to favour them vowed to challenge the result in court.

“The result is not true reflection of what happened. The people of the state voted for PDP but APC changed the result to favour them.

“Results declared so far by INEC is a written result and we can’t accept that. Every single result was changed and we are going to challenge the election. The election is not true reflection of what happened in the field.

“I am the candidate of the party and I don’t have to wait till they kill me. I have to cry out to the people of Nigeria to know that APC rigged the election.”
