Governor, Yahaya Bello, of Kogi has said that he did not see any competent Igala politician that can stop him to win his second term reelection as the Governor of Kogi State.
The Governor boast that in his ambition for a second term in office, he has all what it takes to defeat any candidate fielded by opposition parties even if the candidate is from Igala land.
In recent time now, media has filed with the reports that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has concluded it plans to choose a candidate from Igala land, which is the largest ethnic group in Kogi state, so that they can defeat Governor Bello of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the on coming 2nd November election in the State.
Confirming the report, Kingsley Fanwo, Director-General, Media and Publicity to the governor,told Daily Independent that : “In Kogi of today, under the leadership of the dynamic and innovative governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, the state has changed from an ethnic jingoist state to one that is closely knitted, cohesive, and ready to move forward united into prosperity.
“No Igala candidate can defeat the governor come November 2. The PDP right now is in disarray because somebody who was governor for nine (not eight) years is trying to bring his son again to rule the state.
“A governor whom the people have passed a verdict on in 2015 and repeated it during the rerun when his people rejected him and voted for a person they know will move the state forward is also warming up that he wants to contest.
“The in-law of the first person I mentioned is also warming up to contest. So, it’s around the circle of Ibro/Wada which so many leaders in the PDP are not comfortable with.
“The PDP in Kogi is in disarray while the APC is well-organised and that was manifested in the last general elections when APC won the presidential election, two of the three senatorial districts, seven out of nine House of Reps seats and 25 out of 25 House of Assembly seats.Omoko Shaban Social Forums Fans and Share Your Story with our fans and Make Friends: CLICK HERE TO JOIN ONLINE FORUM UPDATES: Please Don't forget to Download Omokoshaban.com Mobile APP: click this link to download CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD OMOKOSHABAN MOBILE APP
