Meanwhile, Legit.ng reports that a chieftain of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi state, Faruk Adejoh-Audu, slammed the state governor, Yahaya Bello, over his re-election victory on Saturday, November 16.
Adejoh-Audu, spokesperson for the Kogi PDP campaign council, said the state was turned to a war zone as a result of the governorship election.
To this end, the PDP spokesperson said he cannot congratulate Governor Bello, who secured his second term mandate following the declaration on Monday, November 18, by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The National Working Committee of the PDP also declared that happened in Kogi during the recently held governorship election can best be described as horror and has traumatised Nigerians.
The PDP made the claim in a statement in the evening of Tuesday, November 19, accusing the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, and the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, of allegedly playing roles in how the election went.
