While the Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Governor Yahaya Bello, hails from Kogi Central, with 5 Local Government Areas, the PDP Candidate, Engr. Musa Wada. hails from Kogi East, with 8 Local Government Areas.
Sources in Lokoja however, said that Governor Bello and his party have done more campaign across the State than the PDP and its Candidate, but argued that the APC also appears to be having the upper hand in the balance of terror.

Also on Saturday, the rerun Senatorial election will be held in the Western Senatorial District of the State, following the nullification of the election of Senator Dino Melaye, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, by the Court of Appeal.
