APC set to pick late chieftain's replacement

The Kogi APC Governorship candidate, Abubakar Audu, died some hours after INEC said the elections were inconclusive.


The chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Oyegun told newsmen that the party will hold fresh primary elections to pick a new Gubernatorial candidate, to run for the supplementary elections in Kogi.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) decided to allow the APC replace Audu while before conducting the supplementary elections in 91 polling units on December 5, 2015.

APC’s decision to field a new candidate, is contrary to Festus Keyamo’s call for Audu’s running mate to be declared the Governor of the state.

A former Minister of Works, Chief Adeseye Ogunlewe, has called on the Federal Government to investigate the death of Audu.

During the burial of the Late APC chieftain, a prophet was almost lynched by youths.
