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 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.
