INEC asks APC to replace Audu, orders Kogi election to continue

The Independent National Electoral Committee has asked the All Progressives Congress to fill the vacuum created by the death of its Kogi State governorship election candidate, Abubakar Audu, in order to continue with supplementary election.

Mr. Audu died just as INEC was collating the results of the November 21 election, in which the late APC candidate was leading.

In a statement signed by the secretary to the commission, Augusta Ogakwu, on Monday, INEC announced it would allow the conclusion of the election process by conducting supplementary election in the remaining 91 polling units where election was cancelled.

The supplementary election will hold December 5, INEC announced.

Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced that a fresh primary election will be conducted in Kogi State to pick a replacement for late Abubakar Audu.
