A group, Ebira Youths Coalition (EYC) has vowed to retire all candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) contesting in the 2023 elections in Kogi state.

Rising from an emergency working committee meeting held in Okene, Kogi State on Sunday, the group vowed to resist any attempt by Governor Yahaya Bello and APC members to manipulate the 2023 elections to the last drop of their blood.

Speaking through its National Director of Information and Orientation, Dr. Ihiampe Jato, the group said APC is already heading for the rocks occasioned by its parochialism, deceit and betrayal of the people’s mandate.

“We will not subscribe to anything evil in 2023. The voters are interested in the emergence of an honest, consistent and credible woman as Kogi Central senator in 2023,” the group said.

EYC also chided Governor Yahaya Bello and “his cronies for misleading Nigerians about Barr. Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan, embarking on a laughable exercise and suicide mission and subjecting Kogi State to national and international ridicule.”

‘’Governor Yahaya Bello and his cronies are overwhelmed by the rising political profile of Chief Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan. They simply want to be mischievous.”

The youths described the allegation that Akpoti-Uduaghan claimed N10 billion in damages from her husband before their marriage as a purely absurd, diversionary and unnecessary distraction.

The group condemned the governor for allegedly orchestrating a campaign of calumny against Akpoti-Uduaghan, with a view to impugn her integrity and malign her transparency stance.

The youths praised the opposition party leader for her peaceful disposition and gentility.

“Chief Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan will make Kogi Central a more salubrious clime. She will promote an environment safe for life and the growth of business. Kogi Central is about to be emancipated from anti-development forces.

“We are waiting for the National Assembly election. We know Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan will win. The people will vote for PDP

“We need a vibrant and well-focused senator who has the interest of the district at heart; a woman who is academically sound and administratively skillful; a very deft master strategist who doesn’t talk with both sides of mouth; a woman who will deliver the dividend of democracy to the wonderful people of Kogi Central.”
