Kogi West Senatorial Rerun: INEC Declares Election Inconclusive

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the November 16th 2019, Kogi West senatorial rerun election inconclusive.

According to the returning officer, Professor Olayinde Lawal, the margin between the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Smart Adeyemi and that of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Dino Melaye is 20,570.

He announced that Mr Adeyemi polled a total of 80,118 votes, while Senator Melaye got 59,548 votes from the seven Local Government Areas in the senatorial district.

Prof Lawal explained that the total margin between both candidates is lower than the 43,127 registered voters in 53 polling units of 20 registration areas in the zone where elections were cancelled.

The returning officer for the Kogi West Senatorial rerun, who declared the election inconclusive said, he is constrained by law to declare a winner because of the lead margin between the leading candidates.
