Kogi Guber: Yahaya Bello warns governorship aspirants

Ahead of the Kogi State governorship election, Governor Yahaya Bello has cautioned aspirants on the platform of the APC against divisive acts.


He asked them to instead focus on their strengths in wooing party members ahead of its primary election scheduled for April.

Mr Bello’s advice comes on the heels of controversy that has trailed the suspension of Murtala Yakubu, a member of the APC National Working Committee from the state.

The governor, in a statement by Kingsley Fanwo, the Commissioner for Information and Communications, warned against divisive tendencies that could jeopardise the interest of the party and undermine the peace and unity that the ruling party had been known for in the state under his leadership.

The governor reiterated that the party would ensure a fair playing ground for the best candidate to emerge in the primary election.

He expressed confidence that APC would win the governorship election with a wide margin in November.

The governor wished all the governorship aspirants a successful screening exercise.
