- The war of words between the APC and the PDP has continued unabated in Kogi state
- This is as the state prepares for its governorship election in a few weeks time
- The APC has accused the PDP of promoting violence by sponsoring hoodlums to disrupt its campaign activities
The campaign council of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of promoting violence ahead of the November 16 governorship election in the state.
The APC council through its spokesman, Kingsley Fanwo, cautioned the PDP candidate, Engineer Musa Wada and his supporters against the use of violence as the election approaches.
Fanwo stated that acts of violence by the PDP can't save the PDP its candidate from defeat at the poll.
The APC council accused the PDP of sponsoring hoodlums to vandalise posters, billboards and other campaign materials used for APC's campaign flag-off in Idah.
Speaking to journalists in Lokoja the state capital on Sunday, October 27, Fanwo said it was clear that the turnout of party supporters and the people of Kogi East to receive Governor Yahaya Bello at Idah on Saturday, October 2 was devastating for the opposition.
He further said the PDP is jittery, adding that the success of the APC campaign, “signifies the wholesome acceptance of the policies and programmes of the Governor Yahaya Bello-led administration in the state.”
Recall that APC chieftains in Kogi recently mocked the PDP over what they claimed was a flopped campaign launch of the opposition party in the state.
“No one who has ever tasted the honey of good governance that the APC government in Kogi state and other states have been dishing out to the people will opt for the bitter pill of corruption and despotic feudal style of governance,” APC chieftain, Adejoh Okai said.
