APC Cannot Score Up to 20% of Votes in Kogi, Bayelsa- PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the rejected All Progressives Congress (APC) and their unpopular governorship candidates cannot score up 20 percent of the votes in the November 16 Kogi and Bayelsa states governorship elections, respectively.

The PDP says the APC will also fail to attain the statutory 25 percent of the votes in two-thirds of local governments of the states, as it cannot boast of genuine followership having failed to consolidate any foothold in the two states.

This is so because it is overwhelmingly evident that the PDP has the highest demography of members, supporters and volunteers in all the electoral units, wards and local governments, ready for the polls and not even the APC’s recourse to violence, blackmail, manipulations, and rituals can sway the resolve of the people in both states.

Moreover, there is already a consensus that APC’s candidates; the anti-people Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state, as well as unskilled David Lyon of Bayelsa state, are no match for PDP’s versatile Engr. Musa Wada and cerebral Senator Douye Diri’s popularity in their respective states.

For the people of Kogi state, the November 16 election is a determined march for freedom; for inevitable emancipation from the stranglehold of the repressive, vindictive, exploitative and corrupt APC administration.

The Kogi election is a direct referendum against Governor Yahaya Bello whose administration has become synonymous with deprivation, poverty, violence, and death, most times by suicides.

November 16 is a date Governor Yahaya Bello must keep with the millions he viciously deprived of their means of livelihood; a date with millions who have suffered untold hardship over unpaid salaries and pensions; a date with Kogi youths whose common patrimony he squandered in his reckless wasteful misgovernance; indeed, nothing will deliver Governor Bello from the crushing verdict of the ballot box.

Our party, therefore, counsels Governor Bello to desist from his crude blackmails and resort to thuggery, as he would soon realize that he is now alone.

In Bayelsa, the APC, having no toehold, is almost non-existent as the people are already rallied behind our candidate, Senator Diri, in their collective quest to consolidate on the good governance entrenched by Governor Seriake Dickson.

The APC should know that there is no way the people of Bayelsa will contemplate allowing a party which has proven to be anti-people, ideologically vacuous and corrupt, to be anywhere near their government house.

The PDP, therefore, counsels the APC to end its pipe-dream of winning in the two states as such is completely unattainable under the prevailing reality.
