The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi State on Tuesday demanded he immediate transfer of the state’s Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Busari, and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) Prof. James Apam.

The call was made by the party’s executives in Lokoja Local Government after its stakeholders meeting.

The party believed that both Busari and Apam would compromise, and also favour the opposition in the coming governorship election, hence the need for their transfer from the state.
