The immediate past governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has said that people should disregard circulation of posters insinuating that he is contesting for the National Chairman of the All Progress Congress (APC).
In a press statement issued on Tuesday and made available to newsmen, the former governor noted that this is the handiwork of some opposition leaders and some fifth columnists within the party.
The statement read as follows,” We are aware of the clandestine moves by some mischief makers to create confusion within the hierarchy of the All Progressives Congress. This is the handiwork of some opposition leaders and some fifth columnists within the party.
“A part of the plans already being hatched is the circulation of campaign posters with the picture of His Excellency Alh. Yahaya Bello, CON, the immediate past Governor of Kogi State, insinuating that he is contesting for the position of the National Chairmanship of the All Progressives Congress. The insinuation is infantile, false and should be disregarded.
“Our party is not in the process of conducting Congresses or a Convention, therefore, there is absolutely no basis for anyone to circulate any posters for party offices.
“Let it be made abundantly clear that His Excellency Alh. Yahaya Bello did not authorise anyone to circulate any posters on his behalf as he remains a loyal party man who is committed to the leadership of the National Chairman of the Party, His Excellency Dr Abdullahi Ganduje.
“We urge members of the general public to disregard the mischief of the people circulating posters to create a false impression.
