Lokoja - 10 out of the 28 aspirants cleared to contest in the All Progressives Congress (APC) Kogi State governorship election primaries have accused a former governor of the state, Abubakar Audu of cloning Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs), reports Vanguard.

One of the aspirants, James Ocholi, stated that the intention of Audu was to clone the cards and hand them over to his loyalists for proxy vote during the party’s primaries.

He said he had already petitioned the national leadership of the party over what he called the antics of Audu to rig the primaries in his favour

Audu has, however, dismissed the allegation, saying the aspirants accusing him of cloning PVcs are jittery of his political status.
