#POLITICS: KOGI GUBER: Only God Can Stop Me From Winning- Bello

Share This
Ahead of the November 2019 governorship election in Kogi state, Governor Yahaya Bello on Friday has boasted that he can only be stopped from returning for the second term in office by God.

Bello boasted that he will pick the All Progressives Congress ticket for the election and will be elected for another four years.

Bello made the assertion while speaking with State House correspondents after meeting behind closed doors with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The governor, while assuring that nobody can stop him from picking the party’s ticket and winning his election for another four years, said there was no way a tenant (the opposition) would dislodge the landlord (APC).

Asked to react to the alleged moves by the APC to deny him the party’s ticket and his desperate efforts to retain his ticket and return as the next Governor of Kogi state, he said it was not possible for him not to complete another four years in office.

“I am the Governor today and Insha Allah, l will return back as the Governor for another four years, after the November 16 election.

“As for the ticket, the analogy is that the tenant cannot send the landlord out of his house. So, APC in Kogi state was rebuilt by me, after the good job done by our late leader, His Excellency, Prince Abubakar Audu.

“After his demise, l came, rebuilt it from the scratch to what it is today. That is evident in the last outing of the party where we had 25/25, in the State House of Assembly. We also won 7 out of the 9 contested positions in the House of Representatives and two out of the three Senators representing Kogi state in the Senate.

“So, anybody that is making such noise does not disturb me, because, in the market place, noise is allowed. You know, in Kogi politics is the loudest, so people must make noise and you can’t stop that.
“But surely, l am very good with my party from the local government to the national level. They know that l am the leader of the party in my state. I have built it and it is very strong.

“Anytime, any day, we will win elections in a landslide. That l am going to win in the primaries is given by the grace of God, by whichever means, direct or indirect”, he said.

He added that “In the November governorship election, we are not just talking of winning, we are looking at the margins. The margin is going to be such that whoever comes far second, will be discouraged to go to court.”

Commenting on the expectations of Nigerians on the election of the leadership of the National Assembly which was won by the ruling APC, he said that there would be smooth administration.

He said,” You are going to see government at ease at the next level. Programs, projects and every policy of the government, you are going to see them implemented with ease unlike what we saw in the eight National Assembly. ” You can see now that the atmosphere is very calm and everybody is happy.
It shows that APC got it right this time around. So, kudos to Mr President, the leadership of our great party and leadership of the National Assembly and all the members of the National Assembly.”
