Kogi state governor, Mr Yahaya Bello, says his state has endorsed Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari for a second term.
Mr Bello who spoke with State House Correspondents after he observed the Ju’maat prayer at the Aso Rock mosque on Friday, January 5, said the president would get more votes in Kogi than in Katsina State in 2019.
“I’m sure you’re following us as we’re receiving decampees from PDP and all other political parties. And any time we hold any decamping rally in any local government, you’ll see the mammoth crowd that turns out.
“So, Kogi State has already endorsed President Buhari for the second term. We’re just waiting for the time to come.
“You’re going to see the votes that’ll come out of Kogi State, it’ll dwarf that of Katsina State, I can assure you”, he said.
Bello’s statement is coming two (2) days after Nigeria’s burgeoning online integrated media platform, ALEDEH exclusively reported that thirteen (13) All Progressives Congress, APC, governors rejected a request mandating them to contribute the sum of N50 million towards President Muhammadu Buhari’s reelection campaign.
