Ahead of this Saturday’s governorship election in Kogi state, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state says he is working hard to ensure the second term re-election of Yahaya Bello as governor of the state.
In a statement issued on Sunday by his special Adviser on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye, El Rufai who is also chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC) Campaign Council of Kogi state, dismisses the purported rumour being attributed to him that he has backed-out from his role to ensure the victory of Yahaya Bello in the forthcoming poll.
El Rufai said he gives his best to all his assignments, adding that the Kogi election will not be different.
According to the statement, El Rufai along with other members of the campaign council, ‘’will be on the ground in Kogi this week as the APC works for another democratic mandate.
The statement further dismisses the fake quote ascribed to El Rufai as ‘’ a despicable fabrication, concocted and motivated by the desperation of the PDP..’’
‘’The people of Kogi State will make their free choice at the ballot. Therefore, every political actor has a duty to ensure that the voters act on the basis of accurate information, not lies and fake news.,’’ the statement advised.
Adekeye pointed out that ‘’APC will continue to campaign to persuade the people of Kogi State to renew the mandate they gave our party four years ago. That is the focus of the Malam Nasir El-Rufai and the members of APC Campaign Council.’’
