- The Kogi state government claims the PDP is trying to undermine the victory of the APC in the November 16 governorship election in the state
- Kingsly Fanwo, the director-general media, and publicity to Kogi state governor says the attempt by PDP to rubbish their victory will definitely fail
- The governor’s aide accuses the opposition party of spending million to raise false alarms and cover their disastrous outing in the Kogi election
Kogi state government has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of trying to rubbish the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the November 16 governorship election in the state.
Kingsly Fanwo, the director-general media and publicity to Kogi state governor who made the allegation in a press statement on Sunday, November 24, said the attempt by the PDP to rubbish their victory will definitely fail, The Tribune reports.
The aide alleged that the PDP through its propaganda wing was attempting rubbish the well-deserved, hard-earned victory of the APC in the Kogi election.
He accused the opposition party of spending million to raise false alarms and cover their disastrous outing in the Kogi election.
Kingsly said the APC did not win the governorship election through violence, noting that the victory came via a combination of strategic planning of Governor Yahaya Bello.
“First, APC did a soul searching and realised it might not do too well in the election if it failed to come together as one united family. That led the leadership of the party to initiate a robust reconciliatory move that re-united the various factions within the party into one happy family,” he said.
“Second, the APC went on an aggressive marketing drive across the state to showcase its achievements since it assumed power in 2016 and this endeared prospective voters to the party, having seen the margin of difference in what APC achieved in less than four years compared with PDP’s 16 years of waste."
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the immediate investigation into the cause of the murder of Mrs Achejuh Abuh, a PDP women leader in Kogi state following the just concluded governorship election.
He said the evildoers behind the act must be made to face the wrath of the law, irrespective of who they are.
The position of the Buhari was made known in a statement by the aide to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina on Sunday, November 24.
