Abubakar Audu dead!
Sad news in Kogi state on Sunday.The gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi state, Mr. Abubakar Audu is dead.The governorship aspirant is said to have died shortly after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared his victory at the elections inconclusive.
According to the Cable he suffered a first stroke this morning at about 9 am and shortly after
the election was declared inconclusive, he suffered a second one which killed him.Nigerian as usual have been commenting with their usual religious and Juju angles.Saying his death was from God or it was Juju from his rivals.The simple matter is the man was hypertensive.He probably did not take his medication regularly or adjust his diet accordingly.When you add this to the stress of politics,then it's very easy to see how he can easily have a heart attack.Politics stress in Nigeria alone is enough to give you a heart attack.

Meanwhile the PDP put all rivalry aside by commiserating with APC over Audu's death.Read the press statement from the PDP below...
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is shocked by the news of the sudden death of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in last Saturday’s Kogi state governorship election, Prince Abubakar Audu. At this critical moment, the PDP refrains from comments on the conduct of the election. That is not important now. What is important at this point is the sanctity of human life.Our deepest thoughts and prayers go to the family of Prince Abubakar Audu and indeed, the APC fold. On this note, the Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, charges all PDP members in Kogi and across the nation to keep Prince Audu, his family and loved ones in their prayers, as we mourn with them and the people of Kogi state over this monumental loss.
