Bayelsa, Kogi election results unacceptable —Reps minority caucus

The House of Representatives minority caucus on Tuesday denounced the outcome of last Saturday governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa States.

The group led by Reps Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu, said they were 100 percent not in support of the elections’ results.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) won the governorship elections in the two states while the senatorial election in Kogi West was declared inclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Elumelu, who led the leadership of the Senate caucus to address journalists on the outcome of the elections in Abuja, said: “We are 100 percent not in support of the outcome of the elections.”
