INEC fixes Dec. 5 for Kogi Supplementary Election, directs APC to replace Audu.


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

Election will hold only in the 91 polling units where elections were not held or cancelled according to the commission.

INEC took the decision after the All Progressives Congress (APC) notified it of the death of Abubakar Audu, the party’s candidate in the election.
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.
This announcement has now ended the controversies generated over what action INEC will take following the death of Audu.

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