The Kogi State APC Governorship campaign council has on Tuesday reacted to an allegation of “technical disenfranchisement” from some quarters against Hon. Shuaibu Audu Abubakar, the Minister for Steel Development and Director-General of the Kogi State APC Governorship campaign council.
According to a statement of response by Kingsley Fanwo, the Kogi State Commissioner for Information and Spokesperson of the Kogi State APC campaign council; “The attention of the Kogi APC Governorship Campaign Council has been drawn to a reckless falsehood to the effect that our Campaign DG, HM Prince Shuaibu Abubakar Audu was distributing recharge cards that will automatically deactivate the voter’s cards of the beneficiaries.
“As ludicrous and mentally indolent as the allegations are, it is pertinent to set the record straight to save the unsuspecting public from the unbridled propaganda of the opposition. Their intent is to create panic, spread falsehood and make it look like Kogi is at war.”
“They know they can’t win any election here because the people of Kogi State know the leaders they trust. Our Director General, Prince Shuaibu Abubakar Audu, has a reputation of transparency and respect for the rule of law. He possesses a capacity to be trusted and followed by the people. He does not need to contemplate any foul means of winning election when his pedigree, antecedents, track record and family background place him on a comfortable pedestal to ensure his people remain with the party that has served them so well and that will do better and more for the people at all levels.
“It is on this note we call on the people to disregard the figment of the imagination of the scripters of the fiction. Our party will win a free, fair and credible election on November 11.
“Kogi is APC and APC is Kogi,” the statement further said.
