PDP urges INEC to declare Wada as winner of Kogi election

26 November 2015, 20:25

Abuja - The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare its candidate, Governor Idris Wada, as the winner of the November 21 governorship election in Kogi State, reports The Nation.

The Kogi election had been declared inconclusive following the cancellation of the poll in 91 units across 21 local government areas in the state.

The party is also seeking the exclusion of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the supplementary election slated for December 5.

The party’s position was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of its national caucus meeting held in Abuja Wednesday night.

The communiqué, signed by the party's National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, insisted that with the death of the APC’s candidate, Abubakar Audu, during the election, the APC has legally crashed out of the race.

The party noted that with the unfortunate death of Audu, the APC has no valid candidate in the election, leaving INEC with no other lawful option than to declare the PDP candidate as the winner of the election.
