The Kogi Campaign Council on Sunday promised that Governor Yahaya Bello will massively deliver the state to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general elections.

Kingsley Fanwo, the state council director of media and publicity, made the promise in a statement issued in Lokoja.

He said with Bola Tinubu’s track record of excellence in both private and public sectors, “he will win Kogi convincingly alongside all of our senatorial, house of representatives and the house of assembly candidates who are busy campaigning hard across the state.

“Although the party’s agenda for the 2023 general elections is to win well, a new record will be set with an unprecedented margin.”

He said Mr Bello and other party chieftains met with stakeholders on the party’s victory in the election.

“What we are doing now is activating our lawful winning strategies,” he said. “We did it In 2019 by massively voting for President Muhammadu Buhari and also won all the senatorial seats and seven of the nine houses of representatives seats before we lost one of the seats at the tribunal.”

Mr Fanwo, the state Commissioner for Information, said it was on record that for the first time in the political history of Kogi, it has a one-party house of assembly, having won all the 25 available seats for APC.

“In fact, in 2023, Bello will show why he remains the political tactician that is trusted by the Kogi people.

“It is a thing of joy that the state government has promised to ensure Kogi remains peaceful during the elections

“By God’s grace, the state security architecture will make it impossible for desperate politicians to import violence into the state.

“We will campaign on the strength of what we have been able to achieve and the hope for a stronger and better Nigeria”, he promised further.

The campaign council director, however, urged all political leaders and members to continue campaigning peacefully as the party’s candidates could win in a free and fair atmosphere.
