The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties, CNPP, has described the election of Alhaji Yahaya Bello of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as governor of Kogi State, as a fresh air destined by God to restore the state to the path of development.
This was contained in a statement by the Chairman, Abdanis Abubakar Ibrahim, Secretary, Ilyas Badanga and nine chairmen of affiliated parties of the CNPP.
It urged the people to support the Bello administration, which it said was an intervention by God to rescue Kogi from underdevelopment.
The CNPP stressed that the late Prince Abubakar Audu, who was adjudged to be the founding father of Kogi State, would have died in vain, had Bello not emerged governor and enjoined all aggrieved parties to bury the hatchet for the state’s progress.
The statement reads: “Bello’s election was the first fruit of the founding father of modern Kogi, the late Prince Audu.
“We urge all Kogites to support this young man, who is in a hurry to use his managerial acumen to uplift the state.
“We have seen how he has achieved tremendously within a short period in business. With the support of all of us, he will take Kogi to the promised land”.
Congratulating the electorate for ensuring a free and fair election, CNPP advised them to protect the victory to deepen the actualisation of the “generational and power shift”.
