The governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, has been declared winner in the primary of the All Progressives Congress held on Thursday in Lokoja, the Kogi state capital.
Out of a total of 3,596 delegates that were accredited, Bello had secured 3,127 votes.
As the results were being awaited, Justice Abdul Awulu, the vacation judge sitting in a high court in Lokoja, on Thursday, August 29, dismissed an ex parte application to stop the governorship primaries of the APC in the state.
Bello will represent the party in the November 16 governorship election.
