PDP Rejects Bello as Kogi Governor-elect, Vows to Head for Court


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday said it would challenge the outcome of the governorship election in Kogi State before the Election Petitions Tribunal.

The Publicity Secretary of the party in Kogi State, Mr Bode Ogunmola, said this in Lokoja.

Ogunmola said the results of the election was unacceptable to the party and cannot stand the test of time.

He said its candidate, Governor Idris Wada, scored more votes that All Progressives Congress candidate Yahaya Bello.

He said the death of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abubakar Audu on November 22, while collation was ongoing, had made it inevitable for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare the PDP candidate, Governor Idris Wada, winner of the poll.

Ogunmola said PDP had rejected the declaration of Yahaya Bello as winner of the exercise, saying that the party would challenge the results before the tribunal.

He commended people of the state for their support to the party before and during the poll, urging them to continue to be law abiding.
