  • Says Murtala Ajaka has won in 14 LGAs already.

The convener, Murilight Network, Comrade Salihu Adam Jiddah has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, the APC, the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the general public to beam their search light on a sitting Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle who led a committee of the party for the governorship primary election in Kogi state.

In a statement issued in Lokoja on Friday, the political movement commended the active members of APC who came out despite harassment and intimidation by attackers of democracy.

They, however, accused Governor Matawalle of taking sides in the election by trying to manipulate the results.

“We want the general public to know that Hon Murtala Yakubu Ajaka has won in about 14 LGAs and we have full evidence to these results.

“We have won in the following LGA areas:

“Kogi East: Idah, Igalamela-Odolu, Ibaji, Ofu, Dekina, Ankpa, Omala, Olamaboro and Bassa.

“Kogi West: Kabba-Bunu, Lokoja, Koton Karfe.

“In Kogi Central, we won Ajaokuta and Ogori-Magongo,” the statement read.

The group called on its members to “remain law abiding and very vigilant to checkmate any ugly move by any one, especially Gov Matawalle who is bent to arm-twist and subvert the will of our people.

“The APC must remember that a man who has failed to manage the security situation in Zamfara State should not replicate same in Kogi state which has been known all along to be very peaceful state.

“We will resist any attempt to change our mandate.”
