The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the Kogi governorship election inconclusive.

Announcing this Sunday, INEC said the officially collated results at headquarters of the commission in the state revealed that the number of cancelled votes exceeded the margin between the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

APC’s Abubakar Audu, who was leading the poll, secured 240,867 votes ahead of Idris Wada, the incumbent governor, who polled 199, 514 votes, leaving a difference of 41,353. But the number of cancelled votes is somewhere in the region of 44.500 vote.

The Residential Electoral Commissioner, Halilu Pai, said elections will have to be held in 91 polling units where elections were cancelled due to security concerns.
