Kogi guber: Gov Yahaya Bello excited as more PDP members join APC

Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has expressed his delight on Monday as he received former members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from Adavi Local Government Area of the State.

In a statement, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Onogwu Muhammed, said the governor also recently welcomed a significant number of PDP and other political party members into the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Kogi East and Kogi West.

Governor Bello attributed the increasing defections to the effective leadership and infrastructure development his administration has brought to the state.

He encouraged the people to rally support for the APC candidate, Ododo Ahmed Usman, stating that retaining the APC leadership in the state would elevate the state’s political standing at the national level and attract more federal government presence and development.

The leader of the defectors, Hon Unwaha Bello, applauded the governor’s investments in education, health, rural development, and road infrastructure.

He specifically highlighted the rehabilitation of Itakpe-Okene Road, Itakpe-Kuroko-Ehika Road, and other township roads in Okene, Adavi, and Okehi local government areas. Hon Bello also commended the governor for his impartial distribution of resources and infrastructure.

The group pledged their commitment and support to the APC in the forthcoming governorship election.
