The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) yesterday declared the candidate of  the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), retired Air Vice Marshall Isaac Alfa, as winner of the Kogi East Senatorial re-run election held on Saturday.

Alfa, a former Chief of Air Staff, polled 57,575 votes to defeat five other candidates that contested in the rerun election.

The ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) did not  participate in the election following an appeal court judgment, which banned it from fielding a candidate.

Returning Officer for the rerun, Prof. Lucky Ovwhasa, said Alfa was declared winner after polling the highest number of votes.

He said the candidates of ACPN, KOWA, MPPP, UPP and the LP scored 1,793, 888, 498, 349 and 11,908 votes respectively in the rerun election.

The senatorial election was held in eight out of the nine local government areas in Kogi East Senatorial district. These included Bassa, Dekina, Ankpa, Olamaboro, Ofu, Idah, Igalamela/Odolu and Ibaji.
