PDP Presidential Rally: Kogi APC Applauds Atiku for Canvassing Support for Ruling Party

Kogi State Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has applauded the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar for calling on those at his rally in the State to vote for the ruling party.

Atiku had during the rally called on the supporters to vote for APC in a viral video.

This is just as the Campaign Council said crowd at the rally were rented from 7 different States.


The ruling party also said the claim by PDP that over 140, 000 APC members was a display of the illusion of the main opposition party.


The Director Media and Publicity of the State APC Campaign Council, Kingsley Fanwo stated this at a Press Conference on Monday in Lokoja.


According to him, the defection of former Deputy Governor Simeon Achuba, former Speaker Alfa Imam and former Chairman of Okene Local Government Area, Yahaya Karaku to the PDP is an harvest of what he called “expired politicians.”


“Dismayed by the poor turnout, the PDP resorted to theatrics. It rolled out expired individuals who had been expunged from the ranks of the APC for their unsavory deeds and characters, and proceeded to canonise them. The rally turned into a farce when people like the former Deputy Governor of the State, Elder Simeon Achuba and the former speaker of the state assembly, Rt Hon. Alfa Imam were repackaged for Atiku as Kogi APC stalwarts who were decamping to the PDP at the rally.”


Fanwo stated that the Party in the State recorded remarkable victory in the 2019 elections without Achuba and Imam, saying greater feat would be recorded next month.


He noted that “Crafty camera angles could not hide yawning gaps in the stands and it was painfully obvious that the former ruling party had been fittingly reduced to a shadow of itself in Kogi State over the last 7 years.”


Fanwo noted that claim that most projects executed by the present administration were done by former PDP administrations was another lie cheaply sold to the Presidential Candidate of the Party, Atiku Abubakar.


“It soon became clear that the political jesters in Kogi PDP had deliberately lied to their Dubai-based Presidential Candidate and his hangers-on that all projects in Kogi State were done by them, so the poor man spent his time on the podium attributing the massive projects constructed by Yahaya Bello, either to a man who left office over one decade before construction started on them or to the PDP Administration in which he used to be number two.


The Director added that the APC is committed to winning all the National Assembly and State Assembly seats as well as delivering overwhelming votes for Presidential Candidate of the Party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
