The National Chairman of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Prof. Okey Nwosu has stated that Kogi governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello would lose to the governorship candidate of ADC in 2019, if he re-contests.
Speaking to ADC party members from Kogi State at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja, he said Kogi State was the easiest state to win gubernatorial election out of the 36 states of the federation.
According to him, Bello’s administration smacks of ideal democracy, recalling that he inherited a dead man’s votes which he failed to justify in the last two and half years.
“ADC is interested in Kogi State. Out of 36 states of the federation, Kogi is the easiest state to win elections.
” I tell you, Alhaji Yahaya Bello will lose election to ADC gubernatorial candidate because of his maladministration despite inheriting late Abubakar Audu’s votes.”
Explaining reasons he went to court against Bello when he was sworn into office in 2016, he was of the belief that no one could inherit votes he never laboured for.
He urged party faithfuls from the state to work assiduously in order to root Bello out of office, insisting that the people were yearning for a regime of change as a result of hardship imposed on them.
