Political parties participating in today’s governorship election in Kogi State have been asked to translate the peace accord into reality, insisting that the legitimacy of any democratically elected leader hinges on a credible election.

European Union Ambassador to Nigeria and Head of the European Union delegation to monitor the Kogi State governorship election, Ketil Karlsen, urged the electorate to come out in good number and vote the candidate of their choice in today’s election.

According to him, in any democracy, the election should be about the competition of idea and serving the people, urging that vote-buying should be discouraged during the election.
