- Lack of infrastructural development, impoverishment of civil servants and gross ineptitude have pushed the electorate to embrace the PDP and its candidates.
- The Kogi state APC tried to imitate us, but with their usual trademarks of deceit and falsehood.
The Musa Wada campaign organization says it is ready to retire Kogi Governor, Yahaya Bello and his Campaign Director-General, Smart Adeyemi from politics ahead of the November 16 Governorship election.
Recall that Bello is seeking re-election as governor, while Adeyemi will be contesting under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) against Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the rerun Kogi West Senatorial District election.
The Director-General of the Musa Wada campaign organisation, Tajudeen Yusuf, said the two elections will mark the retirement of Governor Bello and Senator Adeyemi from partisan politics.
The DG In a statement in Abuja on Monday said lack of infrastructural development, impoverishment of civil servants and gross ineptitude of the Bello administration have pushed the electorate in the state to embrace the PDP and its candidates.
Yusuf who further said that the administration had set the state ten years backward, added that the PDP would put an end to the nightmares through the ballot, with the support of the Kogi people.
“Last weekend, people from the 21 local government areas across Kogi state gave the PDP a rousing indication of coming victory in the November 16 polls, with enthusiastic support of our campaign flag-off at the Confluence Stadium in Lokoja.
“We thank all our grassroots activists, party leaders at ward, local, state and national levels for the success of the flag-off of our campaign towards putting Engineer Musa Wada and Hon Sam Aro in Lugard House and re-electing Senator Dino Melaye as the senator for Kogi senatorial district.”
He added that despite alleged of desperation by Kogi APC, the PDP is increasingly certain of success in the November 16 polls.
“And for this, we sincerely thank all our party leaders, grassroots activists and the entire citizenry of Kogi state whose determination to sweep out the outgoing governor and his grossly insensitive leadership only assures of a coming victory celebration for PDP in Kogi state.
“The Kogi state APC tried to imitate us, but with their usual trademarks of deceit and falsehood. In the history of Kogi state, no governor ever presented a Greek gift in the form of a used Rolls Royce car to a paramount traditional ruler in whose domain the roads have been neglected for four years”
