Governor Bello Canvasses Support for APC in Kogi State
The Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello, has led the state’s campaign train of the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) presidential, national and State Assembly’s candidates to his country home in Agasa-Uruvochinomi, Okene local government area (LGA) of the state.
Speaking at the campaign on Tuesday, Bello assured of their continued effort to galvanize votes for all the party’s candidates at various levels at the polls.
While presenting the party’s flag to the candidates, the governor thanked the multitude of supporters for their loyalty, assuring them of more people-oriented projects, if the APC was voted back into office.
He asserted that the achievements recorded by the present administration in execution of legacy projects would be small compared to what the APC government would consolidate when reelected into office.
“The party will continue to ensure truth and justice in all its activities.
“We will mobilize party supporters and bring on board as many as we can bring into the party.
“When the party comes back into power, the people of Kogi will have a lot to benefit, as projects will be attracted to the state for the overall benefit of the people,” he asserted.
Bello canvassed support for the senatorial, House of Representatives and State House of Assembly candidates.
He promised that the people would not regret doing so, and urged the people to give their total support to all APC candidates as they did in 2019 to ensure continuation of its programmes.
Earlier, the director-general, Kogi State 2023 Presidential, Senatorial and State Assembly Campaign Council and Chief of State to the Governor, Abdulkareem Asuku, thanked the supporters, and assured that the party had presented credible and popular candidates.
He said the victory of the APC at the polls is guaranteed.
Asuku added that this is the time to ensure that the presidential flagbearer, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, and his running mate, Kashim Shettima as well as other candidates are voted into office.
For his part, the director-general, Kogi Central Campaign Council, Abubakar Adagu, described Gov. Bello as “a leader who is concerned about the well being and growth of the party”.
He acknowledged the governor’s effort at transforming the state, assuring that all APC candidates would be voted into office for more dividends of democracy.
Adagu also commended the governor for being an exemplary leader who has produced men of proven integrity to lead, assuring of the people’s support.
