Kogi PDP youth thumb up INEC on governorship election 


The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) youth have commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for conducting a free fair, and credible election in Kogi state.  

In a solidarity movement, Wednesday in Abuja, the convener of Kogi New Generation, Comrade Richard Otitoleke, commended INEC for orchestrating a peaceful, credible, and fair election in the state, noting that the conduct of the election had written the electoral umpire’s name in gold. 

Otitoleke emphasised the positive shift from previous elections, which were characterised by violence and malpractices, saying the Kpogi experience was a firm departure from the awkward past. 

While urging the losers in the poll to follow legal channels, he praised security agencies for ensuring a peaceful electoral process.

Oladele John Niyi, Vice President of the youth organisation, echoed also stated that the election was a watershed in the annals of contests in the state. 

Niyi highlighted the rejection of certain candidates, including Dino Melaye, the PDP governorship candidate, attributing it to voters’ lack of belief in them, attesting that INEC’s handling of the election deserved commendation.

Also, another PDP youth leader from Kabba Bonu local government, David Kayode Emmanuel, commended INEC for a credible job in the state.

Emmanuel appreciated the transparent election process and credited INEC chairman Mahmood Yakubu for a job well done. 

He noted the significance of INEC’s intervention in PDP’s primary process, leading to a more competitive and fair election.
