Tasks IGP on Bello’s ex-ADC
Accuses Bello of instigating violence in Kogi Central
By Dirisu Yakubu
Ahead of the November 16 governorship election in Kogi State, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has vowed to inflict electoral defeat on the sitting governor, Yahaya Bello, and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, across the three Senatorial districts of the state.
This is even as the party said the alleged threat of violence from the ruling party “will never deter it from overrunning Governor Yahaya Bello and his party in all the senatorial zones of the state, including the Kogi Central in the November 16, governorship election.”
In a statement issued by the PDP national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Sunday, the party it’s position is premised “on reported threats by Yahaya Bello and the APC to unleash violence and disrupt our campaigns in Kogi Central senatorial zone, apparently distressed by the massive support our candidate, Engr Musa Wada is enjoying across the state.”
