Kogi governorship election: APC names who can defeat Yahaya Bello


The Governorship Campaign Council of the Kogi state All Progressives Congress (APC) says it is confident of Governor Yahaya Bello’s success in the forthcoming election in the state.

Kingsley Fanwo who is the chairman of the media and publicity of the campaign council stated this at the weekend in Lokoja, The Nation reports

. According to Fanwo, the APC has increased support of the people of the state and key personalities which would aid the governor’s bid for re-election.

He boasted that only Governor Bello can defeat himself in the November 16 governorship election, adding that the coming back of Hon. James Abiodun Faleke and the asiprants who contested agains Governor Bello during the primaries has massively boosted the APC’s chances.

Fanwo mocked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying that the opposition party has lost its leaders and thousands of members to APC.

He said the PDP has also lost its only senator, Dino Melaye, adding that Senator Smart Adeyemi would soon replace him at the Senate.

The party said this on Monday, October 7, by the director-general of Wada/Aro governorship campaign organisation, Tajudeen Yusuf, in a statement he made available to newsmen.
