We’re United with Gov Bello, Ododo – Kogi East APC Declares 

Ahead of the November 11th governorship election in Kogi State, members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi East have reiterated their loyalty to the leadership of Governor Yahaya Bello.

The party members assured the governorship candidate of the party, Ahmed Usman Ododo of their support towards his emergence as the next governor of the state.

The Kogi East Zonal Chairman, Mohammed Nasir Alfa in a statement made available to ebirareporters.com, debunked reports of plans by the zone to pitch tent with the opposition, describing carriers of such reports as selfish elements from the east.

The statement said:

“The question on the mind of every member of the party is, of what benefit are we going to support the opposition party after delivering the Presidential candidate, the Senate, the three House of Representatives, and the eight out-of-Ten House of Assembly members in the immediate past election in the zone? No one after working for the victory of the party would want to be in opposition. No one in his right frame of mind would buy the idea of supporting some self-serving political interest masquerading as an advocate of an ethnic Agenda.

“Given this, it is germane to state here unequivocally without mincing words that the entire Nine Local Government APC structure in Kogi East alongside the Ward Executives is in support of the party’s Governorship Candidate, Alhaji Usman Ododo and we would work assiduously to ensure that he emerged at the poll come November 2023.

“Having benefited from the purposeful and pragmatic leadership of His Excellency Alhaji Yahaya Bello in which our party has recorded tremendous success over time, the Kogi East APC will not take the last seat on the journey to consolidate the current gains of the GYB-led Administration and as well to deliver the candidate of the party in the forthcoming election. We will not betray or circumvent the process necessary to deliver our incoming Governor of Kogi State.



“We would not overlook a situation in which some selfish politicians and their cronies will throw fire to the roof of the party just because they feel they lack what it takes to clinch the party’s Governorship ticket. Kogi APC is one united family and the detribalized nature of the Governor has built the party to the point of creating a strong platform for equity, competence, and capacity. Never again shall selfish, self-serving, and desperate politicians use ethnicity as a fountain to positions in our dear state. We stand solidly with the Party and its candidate and we would leave no stone unturned until Alhaji Usman Ododo is declared the winner.”
