“Going to Court is a waste of time”- Kogi SDP candidate


Murtala Ajaka, the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has revealed that he will not be going into a legal battle over results of the elections.

Ajaka, who spoke on Channels TV’s “The 2023 Verdict: Off-Cycle Elections,” said chasing litigations will be a total waste of time and as such, he won’t.

His words:
“What am I going to court to do when the same INEC that did this is going to come as a witness to defend what they did? So it is a waste of time,” he said.

Ajaka also accused the Incumbent Governor of the state, Yahaya Bello of colluding with the electoral umpire, INEC, to rig the elections.

The SDP candidate alleged that elections did not hold in five local governments in the Kogi Central senatorial district.



He also revealed that Okene Local Government allegedly casted over 130,000 votes even though the BVAS record shows the local government had only 30,000 registered voters.

Ajaka issued a stern warning to INEC, saying if it allows the state results to stand, it would just be a recipe for anarchy.

According to him:

“If the INEC chairman allows this to stand, they are looking for trouble in Nigeria,” “

You gave me assurance that the election would be transparent, you allowed me to waste my time, spend my money, mobilise my people, only for you to write the results.

Even if I’m not sad about it, you expect my supporters to be happy. I assure you if they allow this to stand as they are allowing in all the states now, they are calling for anarchy in this country.”

INEC declared Ododo winner of the Guber elections after results from 21 local governments were read out.

Also, Dino Melaye, candidate of the People’s Democratic Party has also called for the cancellation of the elections.
