Live Updates: Kogi Elections result (Nov. 2019)

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Sunday (Nov 17, 2019) commenced the collation and announcement of the elections in Kogi.

Kogi elections are split into two: governorship election and Kogi West Senatorial rerun.

Result Announcement Postponed In Kogi

Announcement of Kogi governorship election results postponed till 8 am on Monday.
