An All Progressive Congress (APC) chieftain and commissioner for local government and chieftaincy affairs in Kogi, Engineer Abubakar Ohere, has said that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is dead and would soon be forgotten in the central senatorial district of the state.
Okere who is the APC political leader in the district made this known on Thursday, October 24 during the APC ward rally held across the state.
He stated that the APC has gained huge relevance in all the five local government areas in the district and had thrown the opposition PDP into oblivion.
According to him, Governor Yahaya Bello’s excellent performance in the last three and half years has also helped to give the people good assurance of the party’s goodwill.
He said the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state by November 16, would again be another opportunity for APC supporters in the district to prove that there was the non-existing opposition party.
He charged the multitude of supporters at the event to work for the party's victory and shun violence as election day approaches.
Meanwhile, an election observer group, Centre for Transparency Advocacy (CTA) has expressed its concern over the high rate of violence recorded in Kogi and Bayelsa ahead of the governorship elections in both states.
The group urged security agencies to secure citizens, election observers and all other election stakeholders before, during and after the elections.
