The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected election results from two local government areas in Kogi State.

At the INEC collation office in Lokoja, the PDP’s agent, Mr. Joe Agada stated that the figures reeled out by the Collection Officers were outrageous.

Mr. Agada reacted majorly to results from Adavi and Okene Local Government Areas, where the ruling All Progressive Congress won with a very humongous margin.

According to results as reeled out by the Collection Officers of the two local government areas in question, the All Progressives Congress polled – 64,657 votes, while the Peoples Democratic Party polled – 366 votes in Adavi and in Okene, the APC polled 112,762 votes while the PDP polled only 139 votes.

Reacting to the results from Adavi, Mr. Agada argued that the turnout of voters reported by the collation officer is false.

In the case of Okene LGA, the PDP agent said that it is surprising that all of a sudden, the voters’ statistics for the council has changed in the gubernatorial election, away from what it was in the Presidential election conducted earlier in the year.

He strongly condemned the results and urged the electoral body to disregard the figures as presented, stating that the anomalies are outrageous.

In reply to Mr. Agada’s take on the results, Professor Ibrahim Umar, the Returning Officer of the Kogi Governorship election, asked the PDP agent to put his observations and complaints to paper, and file it at the appropriate quarters.

Prof. Umar, the Vice-Chancellor of the Ahmadu Bello University, noted that at the appropriate time, the electoral body will look into the complaints of all parties involved and act accordingly. (Channels TV)
