Nigeria – The All Progressive Congress, APC, has stated that INEC erred by not declaring its candidate, Abubakar Audu, winner of the Kogi state governorship elections.
“Our party is of the opinion that the Returning Officer, Prof. Emmanuel Kucha, erred by not declaring Prince Abubakar Audu, the winner of Saturday poll,” a top APC member said according to The Nation.
”We have assembled a team of senior lawyers to advise the party on the way forward. They have been meeting since some of our leaders returned from Kogi State on the way forward.
“Our preliminary findings revealed that although Kucha said there are 49,953 registered voters in 91 polling units, those actually eligible to vote with Permanent Voter Cards are actually 25,000.
“We think that Kucha, being an academic, was not well-guided by the National Electoral Commissioner in charge of Kogi governorship poll, Mrs. Amina Zakari, and the State Resident Electoral Commissioner.”
