The Governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, has described as “nonsense”, the alleged plot by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House of Representatives, to frustrate President Muhammadu Buhari.
Addressing his supporters at his residence in GRA, Okene, Kogi state, Bello said the president would win his re-election and put an end to “the nonsense that Saraki and Dogara are doing”.
The governor, who spoke in his native Ebira dialect, also appealed that members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), should be voted for in the coming elections.
“Tijani Damisa, our brother in the House of Representatives, is among the people looking out for President Muhammadu Buhari… That is why the nonsense that Saraki and Dogara are doing is not successful. I urge you all to vote for him and his colleagues.
“God willing, Buhari will return in 2019. All the people bearing APC ticket in Kogi, not just Ebira, will win by God’s grace.
“He is the one who will give us and Buhari power. Not the one that Saraki and Dogara are making it difficult for him in his first term. In the second term, he will do it smoothly… When it is my own time, we will win it very well. We won’t just win it, we will superintend over the next one.
“But in this era, please, everyone should be patient. Please, don’t ridicule me before the president, because, I know my status there,” Bello said.
