The chief of the Kogi APC attacks the ADC governor candidate for making a purportedly false statement.
A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Hon. Mouktar Atimah, has blasted the candidate of the Africa Democratic Congress (ADC), Elder Leke Abejide, over alleged misleading statements ahead of the November 11 governorship election in the state.
Atimah, in a statement sent to GISTS VILLA on Tuesday, said the ADC governorship candidate has been dishing out misleading information about Kogi State Governor Alhaji Yahaya Bello and the APC candidate, Alhaji Usman Ahmed Ododo.
While refuting the statement allegedly credited to Abejide during one of his campaign tours that Governor Bello wants his kinsman to succeed him in office, he noted that the ADC candidate is being economical with the truth and should stop propagating falsehoods to gain unmerited favor from the general public.
Continuing, he said Bello is from the Agassa/Ahache ward of Okene 1 State Constituency, while Ododo is from the Uporo/Odenku ward of Okene II State Constituency, dismissing claims of Bello’s preference for his kinsman.
