Despite INEC’s Promise What We Experience Was A Show Of Shame – AA Reacts To Outcome Of Kogi Polls




The opposition Action Alliance (AA) has reacted to the outcome of the just concluded governorship election in Kogi State.

Naija News recalls that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Ahmed Usman Ododo of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) winner of the election.

Addressing a press conference in Lokoja on Monday, the Kogi State Chairman of AA, Fred Ambo rejected the outcome of the election.

He described the election as fraudulent, adding that it was marred by alleged ballot box snatching, and manipulations in various polling units across the state.

He called for the total cancellation of the entire exercise, adding that the party would be contending the outcome of the election in court.

INEC promised us free and fair election, but what we saw was a show of shame. There was ballot box snatching, while result has already been written before the commencement of election to favour a particular political party. They have stolen our mandate.

“The party declared winner by INEC, if they are sincere with themselves, knew that they never won this governorship election in Kogi State. Why where they scared of our candidate, Olayinka Braimoh?

“They used their power to arrest him for no reason just because they want to subvert the will of the people. The Kogi State governorship election on Saturday is a scam and we won’t accept it. We are going to court to seek redress for this injustice,” he stated.
