PDP Says Yayaha Bello Chasing Shadows, Never Participated In The Overall Elections

Date:

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the swearing in of Alhaji Yahaya Bello on Wednesday as governor of Kogi State is akin to chasing shadow.
The party in a statement by its National Secretary, Professor Adewale Oladipo said Yahaya Bello did not participate in the overall election.

“The said Yahaya Bello, who cannot claim the overall winning votes in the election is therefore a shadow-chasing passerby on an excursion in Kogi State Government House, as the so-called swearing-in ceremony, having no bearing from the votes at election is at best an APC function.

“The people of Kogi are aware that the man being paraded by the APC is not the person they exercised confidence in at the election as he scored a paltry 6,885 vote in the so-called supplementary election as against the 204,877 votes polled by the PDP candidate, Alhaji Idris Wada in the overall election.
“However, as a law abiding party, we hereby urge our members and the people of Kogi State to remain calm and not despair over this slap on democracy as the courts would soon deliver justice with regard to the authentic governor with the mandate of the majority at the election,” he added.
