The Kogi state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Campaign Council has declared that with the array of personalities in its fold and the swell of support across the state, only Governor Yahaya Bello can defeat himself in the November 16 governorship election.
The chairman of Media and Publicity of the Bello/Onoja campaign, Mr Kingsley Fanwo, who stated in a statement, also said the APC candidate would shatter all records in the election.
According to him: “From (Kogi) east to the central and west, the groundswell of support across the state has demoralized the opposition PDP ahead of the election, the state has never been this united behind a governorship candidate.
“The Senator Smart Adeyemi-led campaign council is made up of the movers and shakers of Kogi politics. With the arrival of Hon James Abiodun Faleke, and aspirants, who contested with the governor, it has shown that the APC will win the coming governorship election massively.
“It is a bad time for the PDP and we sincerely sympathize with the main opposition party. They have lost their leaders to the APC, they have lost thousands of their members to the APC, and also recently lost their only senator (Dino Melaye) in the state. He will soon be replaced with a competent senator, in person of Senator Smart Adeyemi.
“No matter their grandstanding, we know they are in a big crisis. They are imploding and exploding. We won’t allow them to dictate the direction of our campaign, as we are poised to campaign with the giant strides of the GYB administration.
“Our candidate has united the state, provided more educational facilities, revamped our health institutions, and built the second largest rice mill in the state and many infrastructural facilities like roads and many others.
“We urge our supporters to make peace the fulcrum of our campaign, as the governor abhors violence. We also urge our opponents to sign up to our Peaceful Election Initiative.”
He asserted with his landmark achievements, the governor has made his campaign easy, insisting that the giant strides of the governor are enough to win him reelection.
He commended the people of the state for standing resolutely with their leader and get, saying that the governor will not disappoint.
“The reality in Kogi state is on the faces of the enthusiastic women, youths and men, who are determined to re-elect the governor. We thank the Guild of Investigative Journalists, for the unbiased report that has given impressive commendation to the state government.
“We are not perfect but posterity will be kind to our group for his legacies as the best governor ever in the history of Kogi state,” he added.
