Kogi APC Battles Oshiomhole Over Plot To Deny Yahaya Bello Ticket

* I Am Not Aware Of The Protest – Yahaya Bello

Temidayo Akinsuyi, Lagos

Ahead
of the November 2 governorship election in Kogi state, some members of
the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state will today storm the
National Headquarters of the party in Abuja to protest alleged plans by
the party leadership to deny the state governor, Yahaya Bello the
party’s ticket.

Daily Independent gathered that the protesters,
who are staunch loyalists of the governor are drawn from the 21 local
government areas of the state.

Speaking to Daily Independent,
Jonah Adavi, one of the protesters who claimed to be a card-carrying
member of the party said he would join other loyalists of the governor
to “caution Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and other members of the party’s
National Working Committee to refrain from carrying out the wishes of
some powerful individuals outside the state who are hell-bent on denying
Governor Bello a second term”.

According to him, some of them
have already left Kogi for Abuja on Tuesday where they will be joined by
indigenes of the state residents in Abuja.

“We are protesting
because we don’t want the politics of Kogi to be determined by some
outsiders who are not even residents in Kogi. Even before the primary,
we are already getting feelers that Governor Bello would be denied the
party’s ticket. That is what we don’t want”.

“If the party wants
direct primary in Kogi, we are okay by it. If it is by delegates voting,
we are also comfortable with it. If Yahaya Bello lost in a free and
fair primary, we have no problem with that. After all, he didn’t win the
primary in 2015 but God ordained him as the governor,” he said.

Reacting,
Governor Bello who spoke through Onogwu Mohammed, his Chief Press
Secretary (CPS) said he was not aware of the development, directing our
correspondent to speak with the state executives of the party.

“We
are not aware of that. Since they are not going for a government
function, we cannot be in the picture. If it has to do with the party,
then it is the party people that will be in the best position to
explain, not the state government”.

On whether he has started reaching out to party leaders who are rumoured to be opposed to his reelection bid, Mohammed said the governor is focused on governance is eight months away and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has not given the go-ahead for campaigns in the state.
