The Social Democratic Party, (SDP) in Kogi State has called for the cancellation of results of the November 11th governorship election in the state.
SDP made this call at the gubernatorial election collation centre where the party’s collation agent, David Edibu submitted a petition to the Independent National Electoral Commission, calling for the cancellation of results in Okene, Okehi, Ogori Magongo, Adavi, Ajaokuta Local Government Areas as well as some parts of Lokoja, alleging corrupt practices, vote buying and over voting.
He added that agents of the Social Democratic Party were not allowed to get close to the polling units in the local government areas.
The state returning officer, Prof. Johnson Urame received the petitions on behalf of the commission and assured the Social Democratic Party that the petition would be reviewed.
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party had said it would key into the petition of the Social Democratic Party.
The Collation agent of the Peoples Democratic Party, Abubakar Mahmood added that the number of malpractices in the said Local Government Areas was alarming.
However, the All Progressives Congress while reacting to the call for cancellation, said the Peoples Democratic Party cannot blame anyone for not bringing agents to the polling units.
