Paul Ibe, a senior special assistant to former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has accused Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, of spitting on the graves of those that died during the November 2019 governorship election in Kogi State.
Mr. Ibe was reacting to footage showing Gov Bello at the mega rally of the All Progressives Congress, APC, singing and dancing.
Ibe believes that the governor, who is the Chairman of the APC Campaign Council for the Saturday’s election, was exporting violence from Kogi to Ondo.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Ibe wrote, “This is Gov. Yahaya Bello spitting on the graves of those killed during the Nov 16, 2019 polls by exporting his mega violence of “tatata” that characterised the Kogi governorship election to weekend’s #Ondo2020 election during the APC mega rally.”
Many people believe that the Kogi State governorship election was marred by violence.
Bello led the APC mega rally earlier on Wednesday as all is set for the battle between incumbent Governor Rottimi Akeredolu, Agboola Ajayi of the Zenith Labour Party, ZLP and the PDP candidate, Eyitayo Jegede
