On Thursday, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar descended upon Lokoja, the capital of Kogi State, to rally support for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the upcoming Governorship election on November 11.

In a speech in which he criticized Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello, Atiku argued that the time had come to remove the APC from power in order to terminate the state’s unfavorable policies.

They wouldn’t let us use the stadium in Osun State, so we held our gathering in the party headquarters instead. The PDP eventually removed them from office. Now they have booked all the hotels in the area around Confluence Stadium Lokoja to prevent us from coming. You all came to the party secretariat to demonstrate your support for Senator Dino Melaye despite what they did.

He believes that the election of Dino Melaye as Governor of Kogi State will usher in a period of enlightened leadership and economic growth for the state.

“Dino is dedicated, fearless, and laser-focused on his goals. He doesn’t carry out extrajudicial killings like the current government in Kogi State. Atiku urged voters to “show up and show out” for the upcoming election.

PDP gubernatorial candidate Dino Melaye, speaking before a massive gathering of cheering fans, vowed to rule the state with reverence for God.

“Of the 18 candidates for governor, I am the most educated, experienced, and exposed,” he said. It is now time to put an end to percentage salaries, corruption, layoff and non-payment of pensions in Kogi State. Yahaya Bello dismissed every civil servant without cause. All of them will be back to work in three months. Do not cast your ballot for a minor political party if it lacks a political fallopian tube.

I want it known that the current Kogi Government did everything in its power to prevent us from holding this gathering. Those loyal to this regime have blocked our people arriving from Kogi East and begun shooting at them. Our supporters gathered here in spite of them because they were sick of Governor Bello’s oppression.

Idris Wada, a former governor of Kogi State, made multiple comments in which he claimed that the state’s current administration, the All Progressives Congress (APC), was responsible for the state’s decline into poverty, economic stagnation, and social backwardness.

He claimed that the APC’s seven and a half years in power had been wasted in Kogi State, and that the people of the state should now act to remove their poor leaders.
