The Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dino Melaye, on Saturday demanded the cancellation of the elections which were held in five Local Government Areas of the state.
According to Melaye on his social media handle, the results from the units in those five Local Governments were compromised.
Melaye said, “INEC must cancel the election in the 5 local governments of Kogi-Central. The election in Okene, Okehi, Ajaoukuta, Adavi, and Ogori/Mangogo is a scam coordinated from the highest level of INEC.”
Earlier in the day, it was reported that Melaye failed to show up at his polling unit situated in Ijumu Local Government Area of the state while operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had also visited his polling units.
Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that it is investigating reports of pre-filled result sheets in some polling units in Kogi state.
