Kogi: APC Stalwart Berates Yahaya Bello, SEC's Stance On Party Primaries

Tunde Ajibulu/News Africa Now

A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Tunde Ajibulu has said that the people of the state have lost confidence in Governor Yahaya Bello, Concise News reports.

Also, the APC stalwart describes Saturday’s adoption of indirect primaries by the State Executive Committee (SEC) as a sham.

Ajibulu chides ‎the decision reached by the SEC, saying it is a move allegedly sponsored by Governor Yahaya Bello to win at all cost. This, according to Vanguard News.

Ajibulu says: “Kogi people have lost confidence in the governor. So, the state level lacks the power to specify what mode of primaries would be employed in August as it is only a faction of the party that is loyal to the governor that decided that.

“They are the amateurs-led executives and the majority of the stakeholders do not agree with there decision as the legitimacy of each faction is being challenged in a court of law.

“So, it is a sham and now we start to understand parts of governor Yahaya Bello’s statement that he will win at any cost,‎” Ajibulu maintains.
