The Independent National Electoral Commission has officially declared the incumbent governor, Yahaya Bello, as the winner of last Saturday’s governorship election in Kogi State. Announcement of the result was put on hold on Sunday evening after results in 19 out of the 21 council areas were released by INEC. The commission said they were still awaiting results from Lokoja and Ibaji council areas. It also added that clarification on result from Dekina was needed. However, with the results announced on Sunday, Bello of the All Progressives Congress was cruising to an easy win over the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Musa Wada.
