Murtala Ajaka, the Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate for Saturday’s Kogi governorship election, has expressed confidence in winning the poll.

“INEC has tried in conducting this off-cycle governorship election in Kogi, but not with some challenges in some places. We are only worried about the reports we are getting from our agents in three local government areas, Adavi, Okehi and Okene, where results sheets are reportedly missing,” Mr Ajaka told journalists shortly after he cast his vote at the polling unit 005 in his Ida county home.

The SDP candidate added, “We hope that the authorities would do something about such disturbing reports and ensure they are addressed properly.”

Mr Ajaka also commended security operatives for their professional conduct in ensuring that the election was peaceful in Kogi.

However, the SDP standard-bearer had expressed disappointment over happenings in the state during the election. The party said this in a statement issued in Anyigba on Saturday by Faruk Adejoh-Audu, the spokesman for Mr Ajaka.
