President Buhari will lose 2019 election in Kogi – Faleke

107
Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello could help dump president Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, party in the next elections, says Hon James Abiodun Faleke.

“It is the height of deceit for a governor who owe several months’ salaries and pensions, and who cannot provide basic infrastructure, to boast of delivering Kogi for President Buhari in 2019, he said.

“The question is, will President Buhari contest? If yes, will he win Kogi with Yahaya Bello as the chief campaigner? The answer is No. This is because he has killed the APC in the state, thereby stripping us of critical campaign issues in the state.”

“Mr. President, how can a governor who has been indicted by the Independent National Electoral Commission for engaging in double registration lead your campaign train in Kogi with such a moral stain hanging on his neck?

Bello had during his recent visit to the Presidential Villa, assured the party’s leadership that he would ensure that Kogi delivers more votes for the President in 2019 than Katsina, his home state.

The Kogi governor is one of the most unpopular governor in Nigeria with abysmal performance, Per Second News gathered from various polls last year.

Yahaya Bello’s approval rating has reached record low in the new year, as many people in Kogi deride the governor’s claims of successes in office.  A survey handled by the Kogi Initiative handed down poor marks in nearly every sector.
