The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi State has said that its prayers have been answered after Governor Yahaya Bello, the state governor, emerged governorship candidate of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the November 16 election.
The party said it had been praying for Bello to be re-presented as it would make it easy for them to walkover the APC in the election. It said that the people’s disgust for his administration was enough assurance that their candidate would be governor come November.
The PDP said this in a statement by Bode Ogunmola, its spokesman.
“It is a well known fact that Governor Bello cannot win any local government, given his poor performance and the way and manner the resources of the state are being massively looted.
“His desperation to return is to save himself from going to prison over looted funds. That was why he had to spend hugely to get strong contenders disqualified.
“If he succeeds in fooling the leadership of his party and the delegates, we are confident that he cannot fool Kogi electorate who are victims of his monumental mis-governance.”
The PDP, in the statement, assured the electorate that it was determined to give the state “a better alternative,” adding that it remains “the most credible alternative,” the statement read in part.
