INEC CONFIRMS BELLO FOR KOGI!

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has confirmed receiving a request by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to replace the late Abubakar Audu’s name with that of Alhaji Yahaya Bello for the supplementary governorship election in Kogi State.



The confirmation by INEC showed that the APC has settled for Bello as late Audu’s replacement in Saturday’s supplementary election in Kogi.

The receipt of the request was confirmed by INEC’s Deputy Director in charge of Publicity, Mr. Nick Dazang.

He said, “They have sent the name of their replacement candidate, the second runner-up in their primaries, that is Yahaya Bello, to the commission.”

He, however, failed to disclose when the request was made.

Dazang assured the people of Kogi that the commission was fully prepared to conduct the Kogi supplementary and Bayelsa governorship elections on Saturday.

He added, “The commission is committed to conduct the two elections, that is why in respect of kogi, despite what happened, we came out with public notice inviting the APC to submit its replacement candidate for the election.”
