Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rubbished the candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Kogi and Bayelsa states in the upcoming governorship election in the two states, reports NewsDay.
A former Kogi State Governor, Prince Abubakar Audu and another ex-governor in Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, are the APC candidates for the elections slated for November 21 and December 5.

He stated the decision of the APC to field the two candidates is an open invitation by the APC to corrupt persons to join them as a party that accommodates, protects and promotes corruption in the country.
