 KOGI POLLS: PDP WANTS WADA DECLARED WINNER OF ELECTIONS

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has demanded that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declare its candidate and incumbent governor of Kogi State, Idris Wada, as the winner of November 21 governorship polls after the death of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
PDP insisted that with the death of Prince Abubakar Audu, the APC has no valid candidate in the election, leaving INEC with no other lawful option than to declare Wada as the winner of the election.
The party said in a communique issued by the PDP’s national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh, at the end of its emergency national caucus meeting on Wednesday that the decision of INEC to allow APC replace Audu with another candidate was influenced by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami while noting that the decision of the Commission contravenes provisions of the constitution and electoral act.
The party further called for the immediate resignation of the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Mallam Abubakar Malami for deliberately misleading INEC into arriving at the unconstitutional decision of allowing APC to substitute its candidate in the inconclusive election.
it vowed to challenge what it termed unlawful and unconstitutional decision by INEC in the court so as to save the nation’s democracy from imminent collapse.
