The governor, who spoke amidst ovation from the mammoth supporters of the party, stressed that what the APC has displayed at the rally is the oneness of the party.
The Governor said apart from the fact that party supporters attended the rally on their own volition, out of their love and dedication coupled with their desire for dividends of democracy, stakeholders from the eastern region were fully on ground to deliver APC across board.
Governor Bello then presented all the candidates in Kogi East to the crowd, and stated that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Mr. Kashim Shettima remained the presidential/Vice Presidential candidate the state was rooting for.
He assured that Kogi State APC was committed to coming up with the highest percentage of vote amongst the entire 36 states for the Presidential, Senatorial/House of Representatives and State Assembly elections, while urging the people not to be deceived by the opposition.
“In 2019, you delivered 100% because you are trustworthy people and I believe this time similar feat would be repeated across board,” the governor told the people.
