Governor Yahaya Bello on Sunday flagged off the campaign of All Progressives Congress, APC, for the forthcoming elections in Kogi East senatorial zone with promise that the state will deliver the highest percentage of votes for the party’s candidate in the presidential election, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The Governor who spoke amidst cheers amidst loud cheers said the mammoth supporters of the party at the rally attested to the unity among members of APC at Kogi East senatorial district.
He expressed delight that party supporters on their own volition attended the rally out of their love and dedication coupled with their desire for dividends of democracy.
Governor Bello acknowledged the presence of party bigwigs and critical stakeholders from the eastern region, saying they were fully on ground to deliver APC candidates in all the coming elections.
The governor who presented all the candidates in Kogi East to the cheering crowd reiterated that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima remained the presidential/Vice Presidential candidate the state was rooting for.
He said the Kogi State APC was committed to coming up with the highest number of votes out of the entire 36 states for the Presidential, Senatorial, House of Representatives and State Assembly elections.
”In 2019 you delivered 100% because you are trustworthy people and I believe this time, similar feat will be repeated across board,” the governor stressed.
He further pointed out that such result would give Kogi State a vintage advantage to demand for certain dividends from the central government after its emergence.
Gov. Bello urged party supporters to reach out to their families, friends and associates to vote again for the ruling APC.
Earlier in his opening remarks, the Deputy Director General, Kogi State Tinubu/Shettima Campaign Council and Deputy Speaker Kogi State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Alfa Momoh Rabiu thanked the governor for giving the level playing ground for the emergence of credible candidates which has made campaign council’s work easy.
He affirmed that all the candidates presented by the APC for the general general elections are generous, popular and acceptable, noting that the party structure would galvanize support for them to guarantee their victory.
Sen. Jibrin Echocho, the APC Senatorial Senatorial candidate for Kogi East, in his goodwill message said Governor Bello’s developmental strides in Kogi East has done 80 per cent of their campaign works.
He said the remaining 20 per cent was for candidates to work on their individual inter-personal relationships and acceptability with the electorate.
