Yahaya Bello Already ‘Defeated’, As PDP Celebrates Landslide Victory, Ahead Of The Kogi Guber Poll

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kogi State, has said that it is on the march towards victory, in the forthcoming November 16, Governorship election in the State.

The PDP stated this in a statement sent to Journalists, on Sunday, November 10, signed by its Campaign Council Deputy Director of Public Communications, Usman Okai Austin.
The Campaign Council said that the PDP has moved round the State during the course of its electioneering campaign, explaining to the people of Kogi their plans for them.
“The massive turn out of the electorate is superlative, and it has shown the dire need for a change in Leadership in Kogi State.

“Who will say that he or she has not experienced the mother of all hardships in the State, in the last three and half years, or thereabout? No one”, the party said.
The party stated that this is the time for that anticipated change in Kogi State, stressing that, the people are ready to cast their votes for the PDP.
The PDP called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and Security Agencies, to allow the people’s votes to count.
“They must allow the election to achieve the much desired credibility, by allowing for a level playing ground for all Candidates and parties, during the election”, the statement said.

The party urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to ensure that the election is concluded, stressing that, not concluding the poll will hurt the Electoral Umpire.
“We want to call on all our party supporters to be vigilant, firm, and resolute, by voting for Engr. Musa Wada and Hon. Sam Aro, as Governor and Deputy Governor of Kogi State, respectively. No manipulation or coercion will deter the people from voting them into power”, the statement concluded.
The PDP had earlier cautioned top INEC Officials deployed to the State for the forthcoming Governorship election, to remain neutral.
The PDP gave the warning after alleging that there are plans by Governor Yahaya Bello of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to provide accommodation for the INEC Officials.
The PDP, therefore, cautioned the INEC Officials not to accept to the provision of accommodation overture from the State Government, in the interest of fair play.
