The governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai on Thursday, November 14, said the All Progressives Congress (APC) will finally bury the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi governorship election scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 16.
El-Rufai who serves as the chairman of the APC campaign council for the Kogi governorship election made the statement in Lokoja at a rally of the APC, Daily Trust reports.
He said the party is confident that its candidate, Governor Yahaya Bello, would emerge victorious in the Kogi election.
“We are here not only to campaign for the second term of Governor Yahaya Bello but to completely bury the PDP once and for all. The PDP had ruled Kogi state for thirteen years without anything to show for it, but Governor Bello has done three years with lots of achievements”, he said.

The statement, which was signed by the Engr. Isa Ainoko and Mrs. Mercy Ipinmisho, noted that the federal government has more explaining to do on the timing of its release of such funds just before election day.
