Following the confusion surrounding the Kogi governorship polls, the Governor of the state, Capt. Idris Wada has assured supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that he will secure victory at the election tribunal.
The governor gave the assurance while addressing the PDP stakeholders at the Government House, Lokoja.
According to the governor, the tribunal will decide whether it is legal for a political party to have two candidates in the course of election and whether a person’s votes could be transferred to another person.
Wada said, “As my tenure winds up on January 27, 2016, I have already constituted a transition committee to ensure smooth handover of power. This is our obligation as a government.
“However, with the Governorship Election Tribunal already in place, we shall soon be going before them to ask germane questions. As far as the law is concerned, we have not seen where it was written that a person’s votes can be transferred to another. We are sure of victory.
“As a person, I do not have problems with anyone. I am a peace loving person but the issue at stake is a constitutional one that must be given attention for the sake of posterity.”
