Governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Musa Wada, and his running mate, Sam Aro, have rejected the result of the election as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Results announced by INEC in 19 of the 21 local government areas of the state show that the incumbent governor and All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Yahaya Bello, was leading by a relatively wide margin.
Speaking on the outcome of the Novemebr 16 election in the state, Wada told newsmen on Sunday that the results announced were written to favour the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He claimed that the deputy governor of the state, Edward Onoja with security agents were moving freely and visiting collation centers where he changed results to favour his party.

He also lamented that APC rigged the election with the result of Kogi Central, adding that he and his party, PDP will challenge the result in court.
“The result is not true reflection of what happened. The people of the state voted for PDP but APC changed the result to favour them.
“Results declared so far by INEC is a written result and we can’t accept that. Every single result was changed and we are going to challenge the election. The election is not true reflection of what happened in the field.
“I am the candidate of the party and I don’t have to wait till they kill me. I have to cry out to the people of Nigeria to know that APC rigged the election”.
