The former Kogi State Commissioner of Information and Communications, Kingsley Fanwo has congratulated Folorunsho Olafemi, the winner of the All Progressives Congress primary election for Yagba West Federal Constituency.

Recall that controversies trailed the election at the time of announcement of results on Friday night, with grapevines alleging attempts to overturn the votes. 

The winner, Olafemi polled 76 votes to defeat Fanwo who polled 72 votes. 

In a concession statement he shared, Fanwo thanked Governor Yahaya Bello for giving him the opportunity to take a shot, and the supporters of the party. 

“After the claims and counter claims of yesterday, the party has upheld the result as announced by the Returning Officer. 

“As a disciplined party man, I accept the decision and also congratulate the winner and all that participated in the process,” he said. 

According to him, he lost heavily in Yagba East and won in Mopamuro and Yagba West. 

“My conviction to contest was borne out of the fact that Amuro should produce the next House of Representatives Member in the spirit of fairness and justice. We have no regret for that decision. 

“With the primaries over, our party must focus on healing and Reconciliation,” he added.
