Muritala Ajaka, Kogi SDP Governorship candidate.
The Social Democratic Party (SDP) has called for the cancelation of elections in Kogi Central Senatorial District.
David Edibo, state agent of the party, made the demand while presenting his party’s petition to the Returning Officer of the election at the collation center in Lokoja, on Sunday.
The agent said his party did not accept the outcome of the election in the five local government areas of the senatorial district.
The agent said the results were doctored and fraught with irregularities and should not be allowed to stand.
He said his party had earlier written to INEC on the issue, wondering why the result was accepted by INEC officials.
However, the Returning Officer for the election, Prof Johnson Urama, said INEC is already working on the petition, adding that the next line of action will be revealed.
Kogi Central is the stronghold of Usman Ododo, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
