… says “even the military don’t speak in this manner”
Thr People’s Democratic Party in Kogi State has condemned Governor Yahaya Bello’s viral speech in Okehi Local Government Area of the state, describing it as deadly submissions which should not be taken for granted.
In a statement signed by the state spokesperson of the party, Onibiyo Dayo, the PDP expressed disappointment in the Governor, stating that rather than show his achievements to the people of Okehi, he condescended low with what it described as needless, provocative and arrogant talks.
“The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is sad that, even the military don’t speak in this manner and therefore, wondered why the hitler in Yahaya Bello is on display, though, we understand he is under pressure of failure and connecting it to the violence that surrounded his re-election, one is not to take these deadly submissions for granted, but to bring them to the glare of the public ahead of 2023, which Yahaya Bello said, will be hot, and that he will be leading with “fierce fire” in his hands, he did not stop at this, but promised that he will go after people for disobeying his calls, which we find extremely barbaric, unprogressive and callous; while other Governors are busy, encouraging their own people in the face of the pains, APC has brought on Nigerians since 2015.
The PDP accused the governor of instigating violence against the people he governs ahead of 2023.
“We are worried as a people, one with civility that, any person, how much more, a Governor of a state, can say, “he will make anyone who is against him to go and lay with his mother (Yahaya Bello‘s mother), in the grave and be running errands for her”, in a country like Nigeria with law and in the calibre of someone who should be a leader by example.
“The statement went ahead to assure the failed Governor and the APC, that the great people of Kogi state are done with them, one of the signals they saw two (2) years ago, got jittering and scared of the PDP and the good people of Kogi state, thereby making them not to conduct LG election but resulted to allocating figures which up till now they have not being able to make available to the public,” the party said.
The Party urged electorate in the state not to recline in their efforts to use their PVC against the ruling All Progressives Congress
It also called on Security agencies and other institutions to hold the Governor responsible “in the event of carrying out his threats.
“In the same vein, the PDP is calling on the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Mohammadu Buhari GCFR not to offer protection for any violent person, at least as a sendforth package for Nigerians and the world.”
