The Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has pledged to be fair to all aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state contesting in the party’s primary election in April.

Bello employed them to instead adopt their strength as the focus of wooing voters, noting that he is positive that the APC would win the governorship election with a wide margin in November.
While wishing all the aspirants well, the governor stated that “ The attention of the Executive Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has been drawn to series of publications on the suspension or not of a member of the All Progressives Congress in Kogi State, Hon. Murtala Yakubu.

“Our party will ensure a fair playing ground for the best candidate to emerge in the primary election and together we shall win the governorship election, with a wide margin, in November.
