Kogi State Governor, Captain Idris Wada, has won the People's Democratic Party's primaries in the state ahead of the gubernatorial election on November 21.

Wada is rerunning for the seat of the governor in the state.

The results of the primaries, which was held at the Confluence Stadium in Lokoja, shows that Wada won in 20 of the 21 local government areas of the state.

He only lost in Yagba West Local Government Area, where one of his opponents Isah Echocho won. Echocho came second in the primaries.

The third running mate, Moses Ametuo came last in the poll.

This may mean Wada would retain his seat as the Governor of the State as he is unlikely to lose to candidates of other political parties in the November poll.
