The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told the newly sworn in governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello that he is an “illegal” occupant of the Kogi State Government House.
Bello was sworn in Monday for a second term in office.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, who reacted to the swearing in in Abuja, said anybody congratulating Yahaya Bello as governor “is as violent and fraudulent as the governor himself.”
Ologbondiyan noted that every Nigeria who was alive in November last year knew what happened during the Kogi State governorship election.
He stated that “for the first time, a helicopter flown by a policeman was used to disperse the electorate who came to the voting centres to vote.
“Nigerian are aware that particularly in Kogi State, a woman was burnt to death on account of that election.
“Nigerians are aware that Senator Dino Melaye’s cousin was shot at a polling centre and killed.”
Ologbondiyan said the party has filed a petition at the tribunal, and expressed the hope that Governor Bello’s election would be upturned.
