Breaking: INEC Declares Kogi Election Inconclusive

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the governorship election of Kogi state inconclusive.

Emmanuel Kucha, the returning officer of the election, announced the development at the INEC headquarters in the state, saying the margin between the two leading candidates is less than the number of the cancelled votes.

Kucha gave the number of cancelled votes as 49, 953 and the margin between Abubakar Audu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Idris Wada, the incumbent governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) as 41, 353.

Early returns from yesterday’s governorship election in Kogi State seemed to be in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag bearer, Prince Abubakar Audu.

Audu, according to unofficial figures from different parts of the state, appeared to have won in most of the local government areas in the Kogi West Senatorial District.

These are Yagba East, Mopa-Moro and Ijumu while incumbent Governor Idris Wada won in Yagba West and Kabba-Bunu.

Audu was also leading in six of the nine local government areas in Kogi East where he and Wada come from.
