Ibrahim Dankwambo, a former governor of Gombe State has mocked the ruling All Progressives Congress, ahead of the governorship election in Kogi State.
The Peoples Democratic Party’s chieftain condemned the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, over his inability to pay salaries of workers in the state.
He questioned the decision of APC to field Bello as its flagbearer and expecting the people of the state to vote for him despite owing salaries.
Dankwambo took to his Twitter account and wrote: “APC wants Kogi people to vote their candidate who is owing workers over 30 months salaries despite bailout funds while at the same time asking Bayelsans to vote out PDP where civil servants are not being owed and where our party has performed excellently well.”
Recall that Naija News reported that PDP in the state accused the opposition party of planning to arrest and detain its members and supporters in the state.
The party’s Deputy Director of Public Communications, Austin Okai in a statement on Monday said the plan was to pave way for mass rigging in the forthcoming governorship election.
Okai, while alerting the security agencies in the state accused the Bello Government of deploying special uniformed men with both local and imported weapons from other states to arrest, abduct, detain and eliminate prominent party members across the State.
