The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State to stop wasting public funds on campaign.
Naija News reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed November 16, 2019 for the Kogi State Governorship Election.
In a statement on Wednesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP advised the governor to accept defeat ahead of the election.
The opposition party claimed that 70 percent of registered voters in 18 out of the 21 local governments across the state are already backing its candidate, Musa Wada.
The party disclosed that it will kickoff its official campaign ceremony in Lokoja on Friday, in preparation for PDP’s inevitable landslide victory at the polls.
The PDP accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Yahaya Bello of plotting to frustrate the flag-off ceremony.
“Since we kicked off our grassroots campaigns in the last few weeks, the PDP has continued to receive overwhelming support, solidarity and endorsements from all segments of the voting population including
political leaders and community groups, workers, pensioners, students, youth groups, business groups, professionals, and a host of other Kogites who have become despondent with the excruciating misrule of
Yahaya Bello,” the statement reads.
“This army of the Kogi people is fully rallied against any plot by the APC to derail any stage of the electoral process and they will not allow any infringement by anybody, no matter the machination.
“Governor Bello and the APC ought to have known that it is all over for them. The spontaneous public jubilation that greeted the retrieval of PDP’s mandate of Barrister Shaba Ibrahim, for the Lokoja/Kogi Federal Constituency, at the Court of Appeal, despite the machinations of the APC, reinforces the imminent triumph of the PDP and the people in the November 16 governorship election.
“The people of Kogi state are ready for this election and cannot wait to kick out Governor Bello and vote in their candidate, PDP’s Engr. Musa Wada as their next governor.”
