Breaking: Court breaks silence, says PDP has no candidate in Kogi guber election

As the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, jubilates for its Bayelsa victory at the Supreme Court, a high court sitting in Lokoja, Kogi State, on Thursday declared that the party has no candidate for the November 16th governorship election in the state.

Justice John Olorunfemi of the State High Court 4 in a ruling, Thursday, declared that the primary election conducted on September 3, 2019, which produced Engineer Musa Wada as the candidate of the PDP was fraught with irregularities.

The ruling was in a pre-election matter filed by the eldest son of a former governor of the state Ibrahim Idris, Abubakar, challenging the candidature of Engineer Musa Wada for PDP in the November 16, 2019, governorship election.

The judge said, “Neither the claimant, Alhaji Abubakar Idris, nor the defendant, Engineer Musa Wada, can lay claim to being the authentic candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party since the primary was inconclusive.”
