Chief­tain pre­dicts APC vic­tory in Kogi, Bayelsa

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Muideen Olaniyi

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.
