Kogi State governorship election is a pure daylight robbery Against PDP – Fani-Kayode

Former Aviation Minister and critic, Femi Fani-Kayode has described the governorship election held in Kogi on Saturday as daylight robbery against the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, on Monday declared the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate, Yahaya Bello as the winner of the governorship election in Kogi State on Saturday.

Bello polled a massive 406,222 votes to defeat his contestant, Musa Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who scored 189,704 votes to emerge second.

INEC’s Returning Officer for the election and Vice-Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, Professor Ibrahim Garuba, said Bello had been declared winner, having scored the highest number of votes during the poll conducted on Saturday.

Umar said the total number of cancelled votes were 149,576 and that the margin of lead was 216,518.

Reacting to the APC’s victory, Fani-Kayode simply described it as day-light robbery against the PDP and the people.

He added that the loss of the Bayelsa governorship election was self-inflicted by the PDP/

He wrote on his Twitter page: “What happened in Kogi was nothing but day-light robbery. What happened in Bayelsa was self-inflicted. May God deliver Nigeria.”

I guess it’s better to handover the 36 states of Nigeria and Abuja to Buhari and APC.

Perhaps that would reduce the killings, mayhem, carnage and unprecedented acts of violence, ballot box snatching, lynchings and impunity that always characterized electoral processes since Buhari’s foray and misadventure into governance.

The do or die brand of politicking under the Inglorious administration of Buhari manifestly shows that there is nothing like war against corruption in Nigeria.

If there was, politicians wouldn’t be so desperate and brutal for political power.
