INEC fixes December 5 for Kogi supplementary election

24 November 2015, 16:19

Abuja - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced December 5 as the new date for the supplementary election in Kogi State.

The decision was taken after the All Progressives Congress (APC) notified the commission of the death of his candidate in the election, Abubakar Audu.

The commission in a statement on Tuesday said the date was chosen to allow the APC fill the vacancy created by the death of Audu.

The commission further stated that the supplementary election will be held in only the 91 polling units where elections were not held or cancelled.

With the announcement, the controversies generated over what action INEC will take following the death of Audu have been laid to rest.

After the 21 local councils’ election results were collated on Sunday, the APC was leading while the incumbent Governor, Captain Idris Wada of the Peoples Democratic trailed by a margin less than the number of cancelled votes.
