The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed December 5 to conduct supplementary elections in the 59 polling units where the Kogi State governorship election held last Saturday was cancelled due to irregularities.

This was announced via a statement issued in Abuja by its Secretary, Mrs. Augusta C. Ogakwu.

The statement gave the All Progressives Congress (APC) the nod to substitute its erstwhile candidate, Prince Abubakar Audu, who died shortly after the election the ballot was declared inconclusive on Sunday afternoon.

Though ex-governor Audu polled 240,827 votes to beat incumbent Idris Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who scored 199,514 votes, INEC declared the process inconclusive as the number of voided votes were more than the margin of victory.
