Yahaya Bello, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been reelected as the governor of Kogi state.

Bello polled 406,222 votes to defeat Musa Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who polled 189,704, and Natasha Akpoti of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), who got 9,482.

The governor won in 12 local government areas out of the 21 in the state.

He was subsequently declared winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The conduct of the election, which was held on Saturday, has been criticised by some civil society organisations which monitored the exercise.

YIAGA AFRICA, a civil society organisation (NGO), said political parties and security agencies compromised the credibility of the governorship and senatorial elections in the state.

It also asked INEC to conduct a new election, saying Saturday’s did not reflect the votes of the people, irrespective of the results.
