Kogi Election: Governor Bello Going Nowhere – APC

Governor Yahaya Bello with President Muhammadu Buhari.


The All Progressives Congress has dismissed a recent report claiming that Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, is planning to leave the party.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, dismissed the report in an interview with Newsmen on Sunday.

The report had claimed that Bello was contemplating joining the Accord Party if the APC denied him re-election ticket.

It further claimed that the APC flags had been removed from the Governor’s Office and Government House in Lokoja, the state capital.

But Issa-Onilu dismissed the report as “balderdash.”

He asked those behind the report to find a better job to do.

“Whoever is raising such an issue is talking balderdash and should find a serious job to do.

“It (the report) is stupid that I don’t want to waste my time speaking about it. I’m just dismissing it,” he said.

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission had fixed November 2 for the governorship election in the state.
