Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has called on residents of Ekiti State to vote for the All Progressives Congress APC in the forthcoming governorship elections in the state.
“APC is the only party that appreciates youths,” Governor Bello said in a short speech at the rally.
“It is the only party that recognises the youths and in this dispensation, they gave me the opportunity to represent you in government.
Bello, 43, who describes himself as the ambassador for the youth, called on them to help his party seize power from the PDP in Ekiti.
“When we went to Edo State, the youth were fearless (and) we won,” he said, stressing that the same scenario played out in Ondo State and the party seized power from the PDP.
“The way we did it (in Ondo), we are going to do it here (in Ekiti),” he declared. “We will campaign day and night, under the rain and under the sun and we will win again in Ekiti State.”
Mr Fayemi, a former minister Steel and Solid Minerals and ex-governor of the state, is seeking a second term in office as governor.
Natasha Akpoti once alleged that Minister of Steel and Solid mineral Mr Fayemi in a secret deal with Yahaya Bello almost sold Some part of the Ajaokuta Steel to Bello through proxy.
And so far among the APC State that has donated financial to the Ekiti election have Kogi State as the highest donor.
