posted in: News | 0

The Independent National Electoral Commission, on Monday released the official results for the Kogi State House of Assembly election held on April 11.

In the election, which was marred by poor voter turnout and violence in some parts of the state, the Peoples Democratic Party won 12 of the 25 seats in the Assembly while the All Progressives Congress picked seven seats.

Five State Constituencies were said to be inconclusive while elections did not hold in one state constituency.

The results obtained by our correspondent show the PDP won in Adavi, Bassa, Ibaji, Idah, Ijumu, Kabba/Bunu, Ogori Magongo, Okene 2, Omala, Yagba East and Yagba West State Constituencies.

The Ankpa 1 and 2, Kogi/KotonKarfe, Lokoja 1, Mopa Muro, Okene 1, and Olamaboro State Constituencies.

Ajaokuta, Dekina 1, Igalamela-Odolu, Lokoja 2, and Ofu State Constituencies were said to be inconclusive while elections were said not to have held in Dekina 2, where the State Governor, Capt. Idris Wada, voted on Saturday.

The reasons and date for the run-off elections were yet to be given but when our correspondent contacted the Public Relations Officer of the INEC, Mathew Ameh, he said the decision would be conveyed to journalists at a later date.

Meanwhile, the APC has rejected the results of the election, alleging mass irregularities.

A leader of the party and an agent at the collation centre, Suleiman Lawal, told our correspondent on the telephone that the party would seek redress.

“I have made a complaint about the results at the Lokoja office of INEC but the response they gave us was not good enough,” he said.
