I Am The Leader Of APC In Kogi, My Second Term Is Guaranteed-Yahaya Bello

Bello

Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, has revealed that his second term in office is guaranteed.

Governor Bello made this know on Friday while reacting to speculations that he has been denied the ticket of the All Progressive Congress (APC) to contest the gubernatorial election.

Hinging his guaranteed success on the fact that he built the state APC after the demise of late Prince Abubakar Audu, Gov Bello said people were just making noise and no one can stop them.

“I am the Governor today and Insha Allah, l will return back as the Governor for another four years, after the November 16 election.

“As for the ticket, the analogy is that the tenant cannot send the landlord out of his house. So, APC in Kogi State was rebuilt by me, after the good job done by our late leader, His Excellency, Prince Abubakar Audu.

“After his demise, l came, rebuilt it from the scratch to what it is today. That is evident in the last outing of the party where we had 25/25, in the State House of Assembly. We also won seven out of the nine contested positions in the House of Representatives and two out of the three Senators representing Kogi State in the Senate.

“So, anybody that is making such noise, does not disturb me, because, in the market place, noise is allowed. You know, in Kogi politics is the loudest, so people must make noise and you can’t stop that. But surely, l am very good with my party from the local government to the national level. They know that l am the leader of the party in my state. I have built it and it is very strong. Anytime, any day, we will win elections in landslide. That l am going to win in the primaries is given by the grace of God, by which ever means, direct or indirect.”

Furthermore, he said, “In the November governorship election, we are not just talking of wining, we are looking at the margins. The margin is going to be such that whoever comes far second, will be discouraged to go to court.”

Senator Dino Melaye, Victor Adoji and several others have also declared interest to contest the gubernatorial polls in the state.
