The All Progressives Congress, APC, has clearly stated that incumbent Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello has not been endorsed for second term by the party.
This was made known by the State secretary of the All Progressive Congress, Mr Salam Tom Adejoh.
Adejoh, while addressing journalists in Abuja yesterday, he maintained that the party’s state executive committee members were not in any position to endorse any aspirant.
Adejoh added that the party’s governorship ticket was open to every qualified party member and that the issue of endorsement of Governor Yahaya Bello was never raised in the executive council meeting of the party.
According to him “We did not endorse anyone and we are not planning to. The party’s ticket is open to everyone in the party.
“Our discussion ended at the need for peace so that the party can move forward. He (governor) said he needed a sincere peace and we agreed on terms. There was nothing like endorsement”
“The terms we agreed on were that our allowances and other packages that we are entitled to would be given to us and we all agreed on these terms”
“The governor requested for the case in court to be withdrawn. We told him there are some processes to be followed.”
