Chairman of Kogi Youths Arise Group and stalwart of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has aided each of the 25 party candidates jostling for the April 11 House of Assembly seats in Kogi State with N1m.

Alhaji Bello, owner of Fair-plus, also gave N.5m to each of the 21 local government coordinators of the Group, in addition to N5m and a 15-seater bus for the party secretariat.

He gave the financial assistance over the weekend in Lokoja where the candidates, coordinators and other party stakeholders converged at the instance of the Chairman to brainstorm on challenges during the March 28 elections and how to chart a new course for April 11.

He cautioned party supporters not to be carried away by what he described as the ‘’Buhari tsunami’’ which swept the March 28 Presidential and National Assembly elections in favour of the party, but replicate the feat or “even record 99 percent success in the April 11 elections.’’

The Chairman said the feat ‘’that an opposition party won elections in the state and at the national level’’ was a great encouragement for supporters to ensure that the Assembly candidates win their elections. ‘’

He said the change APC clamoured for ‘’is not a change from PDP to APC but a change from the old order,’’ stressing that the group was not antagonistic but believed that ‘’things must be done right and it shall not take orders from those who do things wrong.’’

Bello also submitted that in order to have all the programmes of change, the party must not fail to take over the state House of Assembly in the next political dispensation.

The State Deputy Chairman of APC, Shaibu Osune, thanked the Group for their support which culminated in the success story on March 28.

State Treasurer, Comrade Ade Ismail, pledged the secretariat’s support for the Group, just as he prayed for the candidates’ victories at the April 11 polls.

It would be recalled that Bello had earlier donated 12 buses to Buhari Campaign Organisation before the March 28 election.
