INEC suspends collation of results in Kogi

After announcing results from 19 of the 21 Local Government Areas of the state, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has suspended the collation of results of the governorship election in Kogi.

Returning Officer for the election and Vice-Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, Professor Ibrahim Umar, made this disclosure on Sunday evening in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.

He said that the suspension was necessary as the results of the election in the remaining two local governments were yet to be brought to the collation centre.

Professor Umar told party agents and other political stakeholders present at the INEC office where the collation of results took place that the exercise would continue by 9am on Monday.

Meanwhile, Governor Yahaya Bello of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been in the lead from the results announced so far by INEC.
