Kogi State People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has applauded the decision of delegates of the All Progressives Congress, APC to elect Governor Yahaya Bello as the party’s flag-bearer for the November 16 governorship election in the state.
Reacting to the emergence of Governor Bello, the PDP, through its spokesman, Bode Ogunmola, said the choice of Bello would ensure an easy win for the PDP come November 16.
The PDP said it was confident of victory given the poor performance of the governor and the general public’s resentment against his administration.
The party said it had all along been praying for the APC to make the mistake of re-presenting Governor Bello.
Ogunmola said: “It is a well known fact that Governor Bello cannot win any local government given his poor performance and the way and manner the resources of the state are being massively looted.
“His desperation to return is to save himself from going to prison over looted funds. That was why he had to spend hugely to get strong contenders disqualified.
“If he succeeds in fooling the leadership of his party and the delegates, we are confident that he cannot fool Kogi electorate who are victims of his monumental mis-governance.”
The PDP, in the statement, assured the electorate that it was determined to give the state a better alternative, adding that it remained the most credible alternative.
