The All Progressives Congress (APC) has given its Kogi State governorship nomination form to its new candidate, Mr. Yahaya Bello, to fill.
The development may have foreclosed the consideration of any other candidate as the party’s standard bearer.
Bello filled the form, which was signed by a Commissioner of Oath. It was returned to the APC National Secretariat.
It was learnt that the form was attached to the letter of nomination, which the National Chairman of APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, sent to INEC on Friday.
The party retained Hon. James Abiodun Faleke as running mate – a position Faleke rejected, insisting on the mandate the people gave the late Abubakar Audu/Faleke ticket.
