Idris or Audu? Kogi decides amid tension

Daily Trust "As a state with a history of violence goes to polls, hopes for a peaceful and hitch-free re-election are not yet definite as security forces troop in. After today, perhaps the soul of the troubled Kogi State will finally find peace. Weekly Trust reports.
As the people of Kogi State return to the polling stations today for the second time in about a year to elect a governor, recent occurrences have pointed at the possibility of low voter turnout. Since February 6, the date of the appeal court judgment for a re-run of governorship election in Kogi State, the Peoples Democratic (PDP) and the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) have returned to the drawing board to perfect strategies for capturing power."
