The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has described the swearing in of Governor Yahaya Bello as a comical event organized by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
National Secretary of the PDP, Prof. Adewale Oladipo, made his part’s position known in a statement issued in Abuja. He maintained that Bello is on an excursion in Kogi State Government House.
“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 6885 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,” Oladipo said.
“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.”
