Kogi Election: APC Group Endorses Abubakar Audu’s Son

The All Progressives Congress (APC) critical stakeholders and delegates from Kogi East Senatorial District have resolved that the late political icon and APC candidate in the November 22 governorship election that was pronounced to be inconclusive, Mr Abubakar Audu, be substituted with his son Mohammed Audu in the event that the party goes for fresh primary.

This was contained in a communique read by Daniel Isah, the Kogi East Zonal Chairman at the party secretariat in Lokoja, Kogi State.

The decision by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare Kogi State governorship election inconclusive has continued to generate controversies within the party.

Supporters and members of the party have appeared divided on who should replace Abubakar Audu as the party’s governorship candidate.

Getting a candidate to fill the vacant seat was one of the major reasons the delegates from the eastern senatorial district held the closed door meeting which lasted for one hour.

While the closed door meeting was going on, some youths under the auspices of Kogi APC Concerned Youths took to the streets with placards, demanding that the son of the late Abubakar Audu should be the substitute governorship candidate.

They claimed the son has been working closely with his father and understands his plans.

The chairman COASG, Hon. Adebisi Abraham said that there is no smoke without fire and that the Osun State government led by Governor Rauf Aregbesola has done credibly well in terms of providing basic infrastructure for the state compared to his predecessors.

He said, “Despite the financial shortage, even the most virulent critics of this government cannot deny that the administration has performed creditably well.”

Abraham said, “Governor Aregbesola’s government built roads, schools, supplied students with Opon Imo (Tablets of Knowledge), distributed uniforms to all public students in the state, created welfare programmes for the old and vulnerable people as well as supporting farmers.’’

He said that you cannot compare Aregbesola with other PDP governors which have failed totally in terms of payment of salaries and infrastructural development in their states.
