04 December 2015, 16:13

Lokoja -The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Women Leader, Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu, has appealed to party members to rally behind Yahiya Bello, the party’s candidate in Saturday’s governorship election in Kogi State.

She called on all Kogites, as people of the state are otherwise known, to come together for the attainment of the all-important task of rebuilding their beloved state.

“I am therefore appealing to all other leaders and candidates of the party and the various interest groups to embrace unity in order to win the December 5 election,” said Aliyu.

Supplementary elections are scheduled for the weekend after the Independent National Electoral Commission declaredthe polls held on November 21 were declared inconclusive.

Abubakar Audu, the APC candidate died before the elections could be concluded.

Bello has emerged as the candidate to represent the APC but his emergence has reportedly not been unanimously endorsed.

“I trust reason will prevail over wrath, rationality will prevail over emotion and at the end of it all, we will jointly hold the trophy of liberty for Kogi state not as ethnic jingoists but national optimists,” Aliyu said in response to the alleged divisions.

The APC Women Leader appealed to colleagues to come out in numbers and participate in the poll.

“I enjoin all women in the state to troop out on December 5 to vote for the APC candidate and liberate Kogi for change and development,” she said.
