The Dino/Deen Campaign Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised an alarm over the statement credited to the Kogi State government requesting all the hotels in the state to handover all rooms to designated officers of the state government.
The campaign asserted that the blocking of all the hotels in Kogi state by the state government is designed to enable Governor Yahaya Bello and the agents of the APC to house hired thugs, rogue security agents and other non-state actors which the APC evidently plot to use to foment trouble in the November 11 governorship election.
This was contained in a statement issued by the spokesperson, Dino/Deen Campaign Council, Barr. Omoyeni Olumudi on Thursday.
“The attention of our campaign has also be drawn to plots by Governor Bello to use such thugs to hijack materials on the day of the election after the accreditation process has been completed.
“Our campaign advises hotel owners to reject the offer of releasing their hotel rooms to the state government as such has the capacity of pitching them against the people.
“It is also important for proprietors of hotels in the state to avoid being used by Bello that has wrecked the economy of the state and left their means of livelihood in comatose.
“The battle to rescue Kogi state from the stranglehold of Bello and restore the lives of the people to economic prosperity will be determined through this November 11 election and only Senator Dino Melaye can lead our state to achieve this growth,” the statement read.
Dino/Deen campaign council enjoined Kogites not to allow their business enterprises to be turned into a hideout for criminals, thugs and hoodlums which the APC plans to import to unleashed violence on the state.
