Two members of the Kogi state House of Assembly, Hon Henry Ojuola and Hon Folusho Michael Daniel have petitioned the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega  over the  purported declaration of their seat vacant by the commission.

In a petition made available to news men in Lokoja, Hon. Ojuola and Hon Daniel representing Yagba East and Mopa Muro, constituency respectively, said information reaching them indicated that plans to conduct elections for their seat by the commission have reach advance stage. 

The duo  alleged that a group of very powerful and influential people in the state may have been pushing the commission to embark on an unconstitutional mission, using the illegal decision of the 12-member faction of the assembly during the impeachment crises in the house.
