The Audu/Faleke Campaign Organisation has described the supplementary election that produced Bello as Governor-elect as “unnecessary and a complete waste of tax payers’ money”.
The group in a statement signed and issued by its Director of Media, Mr Duro Meseko, in Lokoja on Sunday, said that the final results of the election declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had vindicated its earlier position that the Audu/Faleke ticket had won the Nov. 21 governorship election and should have been declared as such.
“In the Supplementary election final results declared by INEC, the All Progressives Congress (APC) polled 6885 votes, while the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scored 5363 votes.
“Making it a total of 12, 248 votes, a far cry from the 49, 353 registered voters that INEC claimed to have based its decision on to declare the election inconclusive.
“It is now crystal clear to everybody that the Kogi governorship election of Nov. 21 was already won and lost before the strange supplementary election was introduced,” the statement said.
The group urged both its supporters and members to remain calm and steadfast as steps had been initiated to enable the law takes its rightful course.
