Kogi Governorship “Projected Winner” Abubakar Audu is Dead



Yesterday, the Governorship election for Kogi State took place. As at the end of the election, the projected winner of the poll was All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Abubakar Audu.

However, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared the results of the elections inconclusive.
Shortly after this announcement, Abubakar Audu collapsed and was rushed to the hospital.

His sudden death was unexpected. As of now, the exact medical cause of death has not been revealed.

      This is just the beginning, many more will follow with the volume of all these fossils in power. Truth be told, was he supposed to still be in hot pursuit of power at that age.; after how many tenures already as governor. The weirdest only happens in naija. Folks his age are supposed to kick back and take it slow or do you think the energy required for Nigerian politics + running a state na beans?
      And for his seemingly unfortunate widow, what is God’s holy name did she think was going to happen. Last I checked 1 +1 is still =2; you guys figure out the rest.

      All lives belongs to God Almighty. I do not believe in juju except you poison my food. Period.

      When it’s ur time to go, u go.

      What did he forget in d govt house that he wanted to go and retrieve?????? You were hypertensive, diabetic plus a whole litany of age related diseases. Shebi, you respect ur body and enjoy the previous loot? Mbah.

      Timinipre Sylva, the billboard gov. All u did when you were gov’ was to erect billboards of urself and projects you intended to execute in ur dreams.

      If the Lord does not build a house……….

      A word is enough for the wise. I hope you find rest.

    Ehhh! This is unbelievable! What could have caused his death? INEC declaration of results inconclusive? Did he built his hope so high that his adrenalin rushed in uncontrollably on hearing that it was inconclusive? Or is it jazz? Maybe he borrowed so much to emerge as Governor and his hope was dashed at the eleventh hour? A lesson to all greedy Politicians, you don’t have your life. You can find yourself in the same circumstance. RIP Audu. Go and rest your tired bones after all this struggles.. It is finished.

    Not everything is jazz my dear Nigerians, he may have had a heart attack or cerebrovascular accident due to the emotional pressure he was under during the election period. He is not a young man.

    • Busarni

      November 23, 2015 at 8:40 am

      People saying he is not s young man; una just come? Like some one said in Nigeria politics: 70 is the new 30.
      What did he forget in the govt house if I may ask. God has the final say all you do or die politicians.

    That young chick he married was part of the plan. She got in there did some bedroom acrobatics for a short while so no one would be suspicious. Then goal she poisoned the dude. Now she gets paid by those who hired her, and she inherits all his cash…winning!!!

    • Idomagirl

      November 23, 2015 at 6:30 pm

      Are you okay? Was he forced to marry her? You people must find a way to make everything a woman’s fault. Na wa.
      And there’s no way she’ll inherit everything, he has grown kids.

    November 23, 2015 at 4:19 pm

    Im sure marrying the small girl was part of what killed him….dude was probably popping Viagra anyhow to keep up with the babe….people will be quick to say Jazz but he obviously was not in good health…maybe his heart just couldnt take the high jinx and drama of the day ….one minute he’s the winner…next minute the results are inconclusive…he just kpemed.

    Politics is not by force sha. If you know that you arent of good health, jejely call it a day…..sad nonetheless. Sorry, Audu family for the loss.
