A pre-filled election result sheet posted by Yiaga Africa has allocated 200 votes to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the ongoing governorship election in Kogi State.

Yiaga Africa, a non-profit pro-democracy group, posted the result sheet via its X handle on Saturday.

Voting had not commenced when votes were found written on the official paper at Polling Unit 004, Eni Ward of Ogori/Magongo, in the state, according to Yiaga.

The group revealed this development in a post via its X (previously Twitter) handle on Saturday.

The unsigned result sheet allocated one vote to Accord Party (AA), two votes to African Democratic Congress (ADC), 200 votes to All Progressives Congress (APC) and two votes each for Peoples Democratic Party (PD) and Social Democratic Party (SDP) respectively.

Enantomhen Andrew, a Facebook user, posted a video an hour ago showing voters speaking in their local dialect. A short message posted with the video read, “Ogori Magongo in Kogi State, electorate have asked INEC to either present them with a clean result sheet or leave their community.”

INEC had yet to respond to Yiaga’s post at press time.
