The Bello/Onoja Campaign Council has urged the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in November 16 governorship election in Kogi state, Musa Wada to eat the humble pie and accept that he has been defeated already.
Addressing journalists in Kabba after an APC Stakeholders Meeting by Kogi West leaders, on Sunday, Chairman, Media and Publicity Committee of the Bello/Onoja Campaign Council, Hon Kingsley Fanwo said Wada is unprepared to govern the state.
Fanwo stated that the PDP candidate has issues to clear over his mental health.
“The Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate for the November 16 election in Kogi State, Engr Musa Wada owes Kogites explanation on his mental health. He needs to come clear to tell the people he is mentally fit to lead the state.
“We have some documents at our disposal which suggests that Engr Wada is battling with mental illness. To govern a state, he needs his mind at its best.
“The PDP knows they do not stand any chance ahead of the forthcoming election in Kogi State. They have resorted to deploying thugs to disrupt the polls. A military man from the Area Council in Yagba West and a retired military officer have been contracted by the PDP to import fake soldiers as well as weapons to disrupt the election.
“We have it on good authority that dangerous weapons are already kept at an undisclosed location in Mopamuro LGA with the intention of attacking and harassing APC leaders across the State.
“Security agents should rise to the occasion by scuttling the evil plans of the PDP leaders who have lost faith in their chances. Our people should come out to vote and their votes will surely count,” he said.
Fanwo said it is high time PDP played the game according to democratic rules, saying their abysmal years in office have made it impossible for them to regain the confidence of the people.
“We want to place it on record that the PDP is not prepared for a free poll. They are planning to kill innocent people to rig themselves into power.
“As a party, we are undaunted by those crude mentality as the security apparatus in the state is capable of dealing with their thugs. Undemocratic elements can never triumph in a democracy.
“If PDP is popular, why are they recruiting thugs? Why are they recruiting thugs to attack APC leaders? We urge our supporters to shun any reprisals as our security and legal institutions are capable of dealing with the situation appropriately.
“The world should also know that Kogi is not at war but going through the process of electing a Governor. The people’s voices have chosen Governor Yahaya Bello who has healed the state from the balkanization and underdevelopment into which she was dipped by the PDP era of governance error.”
The campaign spokesman predicted a massive win for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming governorship election, saying PDP was only deploying propaganda to win “unmerited sympathy”.
“APC will win and win well on November 16. We have the people who cannot be defeated by the lies and violence. Kogi people have made their choice already,” he assured.
