Kogi State Governor, Capt. Idris Wada has won the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary in the state ahead of the election to be held on November 21.

Wada polled 709 votes beating his closest challenger Isa Echoho, who received 139 votes.

The exercise conducted in Lokoja, Monday, was supervised by Enugu state governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who announced the results in the evening of the same day.

Governor Wada lost only Yagba West local government area to Echocho. The latter was said to have congratulated the winner after the results announcement.

Following the result, Wada is now set to contest with the All Progressives Congress candidate, Abubakar Audu, for the governorship seat in November, this year.

It should be recalled that the APC primary which was conducted earlier in August produced former governor Audu who polled 1,109 votes to defeat Yahaya Bello who received 703 votes.
