Kogi PDP Chieftain Denies Report Of Gov Bello Lobbying Party Leaders For Atiku
The Kogi State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said that Kogi State governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, was not lobbying the party’s national leaders to deliver Kogi to the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the February 25 poll.
The Director-General of Adamu Mahmoud Attah Support Group of the PDP, Chief Sam Abenemi, disclosed this in a press statement in Lokoja while debunking the story by an online newspaper with the caption “Gov Yahaya Bello Lobbies PDP National Leaders, Vows to Deliver Kogi to Atiku”.
He condemned those desperately working to rubbish in the mud the good name and principles on which the party stands, describing the news report as false, malicious, and a figment of the imagination of the sponsors.
He noted that no amount of media campaign of calumny against it will alter its commitment to the ideal of rescuing and resetting the country from the hardships inflicted on the people by the present administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Abenemi noted that nobody has omnipotent powers to make PDP win the general elections, adding that the party may not be desperate to win, but the party was passionately desirous to offer service that will bring the people of this country out of darkness, deprivation and poverty.

He affirmed that members of the PDP would not involve in any form of anti-party activity at this critical moment of the party’s history, disclosing that both members and supporters have subsumed their ambitions into the overall interest of the party.
According to him, the enemies have gone ahead with their concocted story to link the hardworking member of the party, Alhaji Adamu Mahmoud Atta to Governor Bello in the said publication.
He explained that the story purportedly averred that Governor Bello had been in talks with the leadership of PDP to ensure that Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan lose her case in the Court to enable Adamu Mahmoud Atta to replace her as the PDP candidate in Kogi Central.
He added that the story in its mischievous content did not know that the said lawsuit had been withdrawn on the instance of the party.
“The hatchet job must be condemned in its entirety and viewed as the handiwork of those who do not wish PDP in Kogi State well but only interested in their parochial, ambitious, and penchant to grab power by all cost.
“Through Adamu Mahmoud Atta’s Support Group AMASG, Alhaji Adamu Mahmoud Atta is fully focused and committed to ensuring victory of all PDP candidates including Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of our party.
“Alhaji Adamu has made numerous donations to the Atiku/ Okowa presidential campaign council . He recently gave 14 Sharon buses and has extended his tentacles of support to the three Senatorial districts. AMASG is engaged with the task of delivering Six hundred thousand votes to Presidential candidate of the party.
“The enemies know the capacity and capabilities of the group to achieve the task and with their commitment to this ideal has made them a threat to the powers that be who are using every machination to derail the commitment.
“It is a fact that Alhaji Mahmoud Atta is from the same central senatorial District with Gov’ Yahaya Bello, however, this is not sufficient for him to be working with Gov’ Bello. We hereby notify the entire public that this a calculated attempt by mischievous people to tarnish the good intentions of Alhaji Adamu Mahmoud Atta and to undermine his focus on victory for Atiku/ Okowa candidacy and victory for all PDP candidates in the forthcoming general elections,” he clarified.
