Following Bola Tinubu’s description of Kogi state governor, Idris Wada, as a goner, the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, has labelled the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, as a ‘joker’.
Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state, had made the statement, during the APC rally ahead of the state governorship election of Saturday, November 21.
The former Lagos governor and other party chieftains were in the state to show support for Audu Abubakar, the APC gubernatorial candidate.
Reacting to Tinubu’s utterances was State Publicity Secretary, Yomi Ogunmola, who said the people of Kogi are not slaves neither is Tinubu God.
“One emperor came to our state today to say Governor Idris Wada is a goner. He is not God; neither is our state where one man is more powerful than the state. No godfather rules Kogi State. Kogi State is bigger than any single individual or group of people.”
“The only powerful people here are you Kogites. Kogites will determine the political destiny of Capt. Idris Wada on Saturday and not some power thirsty godfathers or group of business men who see politics as an avenue of investment.
No human being outside this state no matter how highly placed, powerful or rich can determine what will happen here on Saturday. Kogi people will guard their votes with their lives. Tell the godfather from Lagos that it is he who is a joker and that Kogites are not slaves”.
