REJECTED!! It Is All Over For Yahaya Bello As APC Forum Rejects Second Term Bid

The second term ambition of Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has seemed to hit a brick wall as the All Progressives Congress (APC) Aspirants’ Forum, Kogi Chapter, on Monday rejected the candidature of the state Governor for a second term in office over allegations of bad leadership and non-performance.

The body made this known via a communique which was issued by the forum at the end of its meeting on Monday in Abuja.

The communique which had the signature of its chairman, Mr Ben Adaji, appealed to Mr Adams Oshiomole, the national chairman of APC and its National Working Committee (NWC) not to give the governorship ticket to Bello.

It added that giving the ticket to Bello to run for a second term would be a huge risk, saying the party may loose the state to the opposition.

It said Bello had remained adamant in spite directives by President Muhammadu Buhari to all APC governors to reconcile and accommodate the party’s aspirants after the last primaries.

The communique alleged that Gov. Bello had continued to treat Kogi aspirants as enemies and second class citizens in the party they laboured for.

It said the forum had therefore resolved to mobilise and support one of its members to contest the forthcoming primaries and the subsequent governorship election slated for November.


It added that after much deliberations and debate, the forum nominated three of its members which included: Alhaji Yahaya Audu, Dr Chief Adedoyin, and Dr Toyin Akanle for the contest.

“At the end of the deliberations, Alhaji Yahaya Audu was unanimously endorsed to contest the forthcoming Kogi Governorship Election,” the communique said.

The also forum made use of the opportunity to pledge their unalloyed support for the President Buhari administration.
