The supplementary result of Kogi state election has been concluded finally and INEC early this morning officially declares Yahaya Bello Of All Progressive Congress (APC) the Governor elect of the state. Bello yesterday inherited the 240,861 votes late Abubakar Audu polled during the November 21 poll.
As we all know that due to the death of Audu the Kogi state election was declared inconclusive by INEC on November 22rd which the APC candidate was winning while Idris Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the incumbent, came second with 199,514 votes.
Newsjit.com learnt that Captain Joe Agada of Peoples Democratic Party PDP condemned the exercise, describing it as a kangaroo election. Agada said this through his agent at the headquarters of the INEC office in Lokoja, the Kogi state capital, the party. Agada refused to sign the final result sheet of the election.
