Anti-Bello Protesters Storm APC National Secretariat

Osagbemi Anthony

A group named Concerned Kogi APC Members, yesterday, besieged the national secretariat of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), to protest against Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state.

The group also passed a vote of confidence on the APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomole.

The Anti-Bello group, led by Jubril Yusuf, while addressing journalists, charged the party leadership to provide a level playing ground for all governorship aspirants in the state ahead of the governorship election.

Yusuf said the Governor had nothing to show despite allegedly receiving N344 billion after 38 months in office covering statutory allocation, Internally Generated Revenue, allocation to local governments, Paris Club refund 1, 2 and 3, as well as refunds on road construction by the previous government.

In his words: “Despite the non-performance of the government of Alhaji Yahaya Bello, he still wants to go for another four years.

“Kogi State under Governor Yahaya Bello will disappear from the map of Nigeria.”

The protesters had placards with different write-ups such as, “GYB stop arms proliferation”, “GYB where is our money”, “GYB is wasting Kogi Youths, among others”.

The group pleaded with the National working committee to help avert the disaster of what another four years of Yahaya Bello will bring to Kogi.
