The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday said it would not rush to react to Saturday’s Kogi gubernatorial election, declared inconclusive by INEC, until it gets the facts.
The National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, stated this in in Abuja, shortly after the election was declared inconclusive.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had declared the polls inconclusive after the margin in the votes scored by All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, late Abubakar Audu and the runner up, Governor Idris Wada of the PDP, was less than the total number of registered voters in the polling units where elections were canceled.
According to Metuh, “the party always wants to make informed reaction based on verifiable evidence on what went on during the election.
“We don’t rush to make reactions, we make only informed reactions. Our reaction will be based on what is on ground and verifiable evidence that we have.
“We are still compiling evidence, we are still making enquirers; we are still keeping in touch with our people on the ground in Kogi.
“It is only when we finish all these that we can take informed decision and we announce it to the public.
“We don’t just get up and react; No, it is too early to react”.
