APC USA urges Kogi to immortalise Audu

24 November 2015, 10:04Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress in the United States (APC USA) has expressed its sympathies to the people of Kogi State following the death of Abubakar Audu, the party’s candidate in the just-concluded governorship poll.

Audu, a former governor of the state, died on Sunday moments after the polls were declared inconclusive.

“These sympathies and condolence with the entire people of Kogi State, friends, well-wishers was supposed to have been made earlier than now; immediately and about the time death information reached our secretariat from a reliable source from Kogi and member of National Assembly,” Francis John, APC USA International Secretariat Coordinator, said.

He said among lessons to be learned from the sudden passing way of APC stalwart, is successfully delivering APC from the People’s Democratic Party “in a shoulder to shoulder contest.”

Audu had commanded a slim lead over PDP’s Idris Wada, his main rival.

“We suggest Kogi State to immortalise him accordingly,” said John.

Meanwhile, John appealed for unity in the state.

“We look forward to a unified people of Kogi State. Kogi indigenes never allow division into the sudden death of Prince Abubakar Audu; an illustrious son, a legend, an icon.”

Audu died from a suspected heart attack, aged 68.
