Lokoja - The internal crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State has assumed a fresh dimension with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) distancing itself from insinuations of a certain working relationship with Governor Yahaya Bello.
The opposition party said it viewed the PDP tag earlier ascribed to the governor by the leadership of the APC as strange and unacceptable.
PDP in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Bode Ogunmola on Tuesday dismissed as absolutely false, totally presumptuous and comprehensively baseless”, the allegations that all 45 appointments so far made by Bello went to PDP members.

The party noted that “though the crisis and burden of identity plaguing the incumbent APC government in Kogi State is deserving of genuine public sympathy, the APC alone has the responsibility of bearing the burden of its disunity and disjointedness.”
According to the statement, “what amuses more is the claim that Yahaya Bello has returned power to the PDP through the appointment of PDP members. Nothing can be farther from the truth.”
