Audu’s Votes Died With Him – Gov. Idris Wada


Idris Wada, governor of Kogi state and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the November 21 election says he’s winner of the gubernatorial polls because the votes of Abubakar Audu, his main rival in the poll, “died with him”.

Wada in a statement blasted the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for scheduling a supplementary election for December 5 and asking APC to replace its late candidate; THE CABLE reports.

”Whatever votes Audu scored in the election died with him”.

”In arriving at a decision, INEC merely carried out the directives of the attorney-general of the federation… the AGF is not competent to issue directives to INEC to allow APC to substitute its candidate for the Kogi guber poll and that such directives are null and void for its inconsistency with the provisions of the constitution”, Wada said.
