THE Governorship aspirant of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), who came second during the party primary, Alhaji Abubakar Ibrahim Idris has debunked rumors making around that he was in a secret meeting with governor Alhaji Yahaya Bello.
This was contained in a press statement issued by the Abubakar Campaign organization signed by the spokeperson Mr. Lucky Issah Itopa on Wednesday.
The statement read thus, “Our attention has been drawn to a malicious story trending on the social media that the next governor of Kogi State was in a secret meeting with Gov. Yahaya Bello.
“The Media office of Alh. Abubakar Ibrahim wish to debunk the lies, stating that it is fake, intended to create disaffection amongst the ranks of supporters and followers of a man focused and waiting to salvage Kogi state.
“The story is a figment of the imagination of mischief makers and has failed from inception as the support base of Alh Abubakar Ibrahim remains intact.
“In any case who is Gov. Bello in terms of pedigree, character and integrity to offer Alh Abubakar Ibrahim money as was alleged. We’re bold to state that it is a known fact that the top contender to the seat of governor in the state is a man of impeccable character.
“We therefore asked those behind the fiction to bury their heads in shame as Alh Abubakar Ibrahim will pursue his case to a logical conclusion.
“While the wheel of Justice maybe slow, Alh Abubakar Ibrahim wish to restate that come November, the PDP will win overwhelmingly and by the grace of God, take over the leadership of the state in January 2020.
