PDP Mourns Audu
The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, says that it is shocked over the death of former Kogi State Governor and the All Progressives Congress, APC governorship candidate in last Saturday’s election, Prince Abubakar Audu, describing it as a monumental loss.
The PDP says that at this critical moment, it is refraining from comments on the conduct of the election.
The acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, is also asking all PDP members in Kogi and across the nation to keep Prince Audu, his family and loved ones in their prayers.
The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Mr Abubakar Audu, was reported to have died of undisclosed medical reasons shortly after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the governorship election inconclusive on Sunday.
He was leading in the results announced by INEC, scoring 240,867 votes while the incumbent Governor, Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party polled 199,514 votes.
The Kogi State Governor, Capt. Idris Wada, who is also the PDP’s candidate in the election, has declared three days of mourning for the former governor.
