Lawmaker faults Kogi APC gov primary poll
The All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary in Kogi State has been criticized by Smart Adeyemi, the senator representing Kogi West and a contender in the primary. Adeyemi placed seventh with 311 votes, while Ahmed Ododo emerged as the winner with a total of 78,704 votes. However, Adeyemi alleged that the election was marred by malpractices and corruption, claiming that the results were prepared and announced before the commencement of voting. He described the situation as the worst form of rigging and unprecedented in Nigeria’s history, calling for measures to prevent such occurrences in the future. Adeyemi made these remarks in Abuja during an interview with newsmen on Saturday.
