Kogi Decides: Situation Room Calls For Cancellation Of Election Results Due To Violence
The Nigerian Civil Society Situation Room, a coalition of prominent civic groups has called for the total cancellation of the elections held in Kogi State on Saturday due to the high level of violence and vote buying.
The group said that the Kogi election represents a major dent to Nigeria’s democracy. The situation room's convener, Clement Nwankwo, announced the group’s stance in a press conference in Abuja on Sunday.

According to him, if this election is allowed to stand, 2023 and Ondo State election next year will be a bloodbath.

The Situation Room is one of the accredited observers for the election.

We earlier reported how two boys were killed during the Kogi governorship election that took place in Lokoja on Saturday. The Kogi State election was characterised by different issues including late arrival of electoral materials, violence and intimidation of voters.
Also, we shared a video of the moment thugs attacked Governor Seyi Makinde in Lokoja.

Irrespective of the high level of violence that was recorded in some areas, the election was however, also peaceful and efficient in some parts of the state.
