The All Progressive Congress (APC) campaign committee in Kogi state reaffirmed that Governor Yahaya Bello (GYB) is endorsing the party’s presidential candidate Bola Tinubu.
It described the insinuation that the governor had withdrawn his endorsement from Tinubu as a complete lie and a fabrication born of malice.
Information Commissioner and Director of Media and Public Relations, Kogi APC Campaign Council, Kingsley Fanwo, in a statement yesterday exposed the report as malicious.
The Kogi APC said the publication was a hoax and was designed to create distrust, bitterness and confusion within the party by those seeking to downplay the governor’s unwavering commitment to the APC’s success in the presidential election. Stated.
Fanwo has assured the public that Bello’s unwavering commitment to the campaign has not been questioned by APC’s dedicated stakeholders at all levels.
He said: “GYB is constantly on the drawing board, galvanising Kogites and youths across Nigeria to massively support the man he calls the president-in-waiting.”
This will definitely not go down well with open and veiled detractors of our presidential candidate, who would go to any length to paint a picture of crisis where there is none.
“Aside from winning and sustaining the support of the majority of Nigerian youths for Tinubu, Governor Bello has effectively mobilised Kogites to deliver not less than 95 per cent Kogi votes to the presidential candidate of our party. It is, therefore, not a surprise that those who want to share in the glory of the impending landslide victory without contributing to the efforts are hiding behind ‘the evils of journalistic anonymity’ to cause disaffection,” he said.
Explaining that Bello has always been the star boy of the party, having delivered on critical assignments in the state and at the national level, Fanwo recalled that the governor recently registered youths, women and people living with disabilities into the APC.
According to him, the governor is proud of the presidential candidate of his party and has no doubt whatsoever in the capacity of Tinubu to take Nigeria to the desired level.
“It is laughable, ludicrous and unthinkable to insinuate that the man working so hard to deliver massive votes for the presidential candidate of the party is the one naysayers would accuse of non-commitment.”
