Kogi State All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Council has refuted recent newspaper reports that Governor Yahaya Bello has allegedly withdrawn his support for the All Progressives Congress (APC), Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Fanwo said that the publication insinuating that Governor Yahaya Bello has withdrawn support for the APC presidential candidate is a figment of imagination by misinformed politicians.
He said the publication is mischievous and out to create distrust, acrimony and chaos in the party by people who were desperately trying to disparage the unwavering commitment of the Governor to the success of the APC in the Presidential election.
The Director, Media and Publicity flayed the report as one done in bad faith, saying the story was “spurious, malicious and a badly delivered hatchet job”.
Fanwo, however, assured the public that Governor Yahaya Bello’s unflinching commitment to the campaign was not in doubt among committed stakeholders of the APC at all levels.
He said, “GYB is constantly on the drawing board, galvanising Kogites and youths across Nigeria to massively support the man he calls the President-in-Waiting, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“This will definitely not go down well with open and veiled detractors of our Presidential candidate, who would go to any length to paint a picture of crisis where there is absolutely none.”
“Aside from winning and sustaining the support of the majority of Nigerian youths for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Governor Yahaya Bello has effectively mobilised Kogites to deliver not less than 95 per cent Kogi votes to the Presidential Candidate of our party.
“It is therefore not a surprise that those who want to share in the glory of the impending landslide victory without contributing to the efforts, are hiding behind ‘the evils of journalistic anonymity’ to cause disaffection,” he noted.
He explained that Yahaya Bello had always been the “Star Boy” of the party, having delivered on critical assignments in the state and at the national levels.
Fanwo recalled that the governor recently registered millions of youths, women and people living with disabilities into the APC.
According to him, Governor Bello is proud of the Presidential Candidate of his party and has no doubt whatsoever in the capacity of Tinubu to take Nigeria to the desired level.
“The TownHall Meeting to bring the Presidential Candidate of the Party face-to-face with the Nigerian youths at the nation’s capital, remains one of the boldest highlights of the Campaign till date.
“The governor also remains the only known contestant in the Presidential primaries to have donated his campaign secretariat to our candidate, which is being used by the youth directorate of the campaign till today,” Fanwo recalled.
