Chieftain predicts APC victory in Kogi, Bayelsa
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Sam Nkire, has predicted a landslide victory for his party in the forthcoming governorship election in Kogi State.
The APC Board of Trustees (BOT) member, who spoke to newsmen in Abuja at the weekend, said he came to this conclusion knowing that Prince Abubakar Audu was the most popular politician in Kogi State today.
According to him, Prince Audu, just like President Muhammadu Buhari, had always won his elections since 2003, but was never declared winner at the end of the day.
He, therefore, urged the people of Kogi State to come out en mass this time to insist that Prince Audu rightly becomes their next governor.
The APC chieftain said his party stood the chances of winning the two governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states.
He added that President Buhari’s popularity and goodwill were enough to ensure that Prince Abubakar Audu and Chief Timipre Silva became governors of Kogi and Bayelsa states.
