Oshiomhole stated this at the party’s headquarters in Abuja during a meeting of all aspirants for Kogi 2019 and the National Working Committee Of the Party.
According to Oshiomole, weighing the performance of the previous administration and that of Gov. Yahaya Bello, you will score the current governor higher if we must tell ourselves the truth.
