Governor Nasir El-Rufai has begged the people of Kogi state to re-elect Gov. Yahaya Bello for a second term.
He also urged the people to forgive the Governor for his past mistakes and reelect him as governor for a second term on the platform of the APC on Nov.16.
He shared this as he spoke during the grand finale of the APC governorship campaign at the 25,000-capacity Confluence Stadium, Lokoja.
His words, “When you are young, you make mistakes. Please, I am kneeling down on my knees to beg you. Please, forgive whatever wrong he has done to you.
“I beg you all. Let us make history. Let us not dishonour the memory of Prince Abubakar Audu by allowing PDP to come back. We must work for the unity and progress of Kogi.”
Yahaya Bello also had this to say recently, “We have been able to unite Kogi State. What we have now is Kogi Agenda, not ethnic agenda. Ethnicity has brought Nigeria to it’s knees but today in Kogi, the Igala’s, the Okun’s and Ebira’s are brothers.
“I want Mr President to return to meet a new dawn in Kogi State that his son has been re-elected the governor of Kogi State.”
