The All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday submitted the name of Yahaya Bello to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the party’s new candidate for Kogi governorship supplementary poll.
Bello replaces Prince Abubakar Audu, who died last weekend after leading the poll with 41,000.
For deputy governorship candidate, the APC has retained Hon. James Abiodun Faleke who was also deputy candidate in the Audu ticket.
Mohammed Audu, the son of the late governorship candidate, was dumped by the party because the party felt that fielding him might vitiate the entire governorship poll in the state.
