Kogi Governorship: I will defeat PDP, Wada with no stress – Yahaya Bello

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state on Wednesday said he will defeat the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) convincingly in the November 16 governorship election in Kogi State.

Bello who is seeking reelection on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) also said he is not threatened by the fact that Engr. Musa Wada, the governorship candidate of the PDP is from Igalaland in Kogi East senatorial district.

Engineer Musa Wada, the younger brother of the immediate past Governor of Kogi State, Captain Idris Wada, has emerged the flag bearer of the People’s Democratic Party in the state.

Musa polled 748 votes to defeat his closest rival, the son of an ex-Governor Ibrahim Idris, Alhaji Abubakar Ibrahim Idris, who scored 710 votes at the party’s primary.
