Voting For Audu Poses A Great Risk For The Unity Of Kogi, Wada Warns Electorate

Published

on

Abubakar-Audu-and-Idris-WadaGovernor Idris Wada of Kogi State has warned that a vote for the All Progressives Congress candidate in the November 21 governorship election in the state, Prince Abubakar Audu, will be a vote for divisiveness and ethnic jingoism, which will not augur well for the unity of the confluence state.

In a statement issued by his Chief Communications Manager, Mr Phrank Shaibu, Wada, who is seeking re-election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said in the history of Kogi State, nobody has championed ethnicity and other primordial sentiments as the APC flag bearer did during his four year reign as governor between 1999 and 2003.

He said, “Voting the candidate of APC as governor poses a great risk for the unity of Kogi State and going by his recent statement in Kabba few weeks ago where he asked APC members to attack any PDP hoodlum during the elections is a window into Audu’s innermost mind”.

“Add this to his dark past that was characterised by acid attack on journalists and politicians, one begins to wonder whether a man with such a provincial world view can successfully lead a complex, multi-ethnic, multi-religious and multi-lingual state like Kogi State”, Shaibu said.

He went further, “What Audu did by his statement in Kabba was to incite APC supporters against supporters of the PDP, thereby causing disaffection in a state where people of all ethnic groups have been living together in harmony for years. Had the APC candidate allowed history to be his guide, he would have known that the state has always voted for the PDP since they voted him out in 2003 and will continue to do so”.

U came wit thugs of high calibre dos dat are tall, slim, fat, pot-belly nd dwarf wit charm of all colours tied around their waist nd muscle. My advice to u is dis; stop wasting our state resources ‘cos Audu has win already. And if u do when Ad’oja comes u will explain better then. Just be preparing ur luggages 1 by 1 to leave Government house 4 an achiever of our time. If campaign of hatred nd mischief didn’t help ur boss Jonathan ur own is walk-over in Kogi State. Just go with ur lies. Kogi workers are tired of 10%, 20% salaries. U are d worst criminal Kogi State have ever had as Governor follow by ur so called God-father “IBRO” a.k.a Indian Hemp smoker. Time of reckoning is now. No more falsification of election result! No more stealing of ballot boxes nd papers in Nigeria politics again! PDP pack and go 4ever!

In his letter, Senator Abbo explained that his decision to defect to the APC is because of the mismanagement of the PDP in Adamawa state by Governor Umaru Fintiri.

Senator Abbo who is a first-term lawmaker was elected in 2019 to the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Meanwhile, the name Senator Elisha Abbo became popular amongst Nigerians last year after he made headlines for slapping an attendant in a sex toy shop for ‘disrespecting’ him.

2023 Presidency: Bode George Cautions Buhari About Tinubu

Bode George, Tinubu

Chief Bode George, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against supporting Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress for the 2023 Presidency.

Bode George made this remark in a statement titled, “The jamboree visit to the Villa: My Birthday Offering.”

The former National Port Authority boss warned Buhari against falling to the antics of those who would ignore the issues of Lagos State to engage in a needless scheming in partisan engagement.

Bode-George also condemned the recent visit of some APC chieftains, Chief Bisi Akande, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, Dr Yomi Finnih, and Chief Segun Osoba to the State House, Abuja.

The PDP chieftain said: “The visit of Chief Bisi Akande, Prince Tajudeen Olusi, Dr Yomi Finnih, and Chief Segun Osoba to the seat of power in Abuja is needless, unnecessary, veiled in some poorly hidden agenda that is woven in apparently self-serving ulterior personalised desperation.

“It is easy to discern that the visit is stripped of any patriotic progression, lacking in balanced national leadership, voided of a spirit of sacrifice and developmental vision. The very absence of Bola Tinubu from the jamboree screams to high heavens that the meeting itself is a covert placatory softening of the ground for Tinubu himself. I am pretty certain that in his very absence, Tinubu occupies the centrality of the discussion.

“I will advise Baba Akande who governed Osun State with principled, incorruptible leadership to kindly help us drop off Bola Tinubu at Iragbiji as he makes his way back to Ila-Orangun, rather than engaging in fruitless pleading sessions for a man who is fixated on a warped pipe-dream about governing Nigeria. He should pay restitution for the egregious stripping of the Lagosian coffers.”
