The candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Kogi West Senatorial District election, Smart Adeyemi, has been declared the winner of the Kogi West senatorial election.
The rerun election held in 53 polling units across seven Local Government Areas.
The Independent National Electoral Commission appointed Returning Officer for election, Professor Olayinde Lawal, said Adeyemi polled 88,373 to defeat his closest rival, Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party who polled 62,133.
The election petition tribunal had ordered a fresh election and this held on November 16. It was however declared inconclusive because the number of cancelled votes was higher than the margin between the PDP and APC candidates.
