INEC insists on Kogi supplementary poll

30 November 2015, 11:30

Abuja - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared that there is no going back on its decision to conduct supplementary election in 91 polling units in Kogi State on December 5, reports Daily Times.

INEC’s position came in view of the demand by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), calling on INEC to declare its governorship candidate, Governor Idris Wada, winner of the poll.

Wada had, on Friday, instituted a case in court, asking it to compel INEC to declare him winner of the November 21 governorship election in Kogi State.

INEC’s Deputy Director of Voters Education and Publicity, Nick Dazang, said the commission has already prepared its supplementary budget for the election.

He said a decision has been taken and the commission will not reverse the decision, unless the court says otherwise.
