The Independent National Electoral Commission has declared Saturday’s governorship election in Kogi State
The Returning Officer of the election, Prof. Emmanuel Kucha, said the reason for the decision was because the number of votes cancelled was more than the number of votes with which the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Abubakar Audu, was leading incumbent governor, Capt. Idris Wada.
Kucha said Audu polled 240,867 votes, 41,353 votes more than the 199,514 votes Wada got. However, the cancelled
votes were 49,953.
