I’m Sure We’ll Get Back Our 2 Senate Seats – Kogi Gov, Yahaya Bello

Gov. Yahaya Bello

Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has expressed confidence that the two Senate seats which the All Progressives Congress (APC) lost to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) at the election petition tribunal will be restored to APC soon.

The APC lost the Kogi East and Central to the candidates of the PDP, with the Tribunal pronouncing Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan of the PDP outright winner of the election in the Kogi Central.

Answering reporters’ questions today, September 7, after paying a solidarity visit to Vice President Kashim Shettima at the Presidential villa, over the APC victory at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja, Governor Yahaya Bello declared: “we are going to have our 3/3 Senate in Kogi state, I can assure you.”

He said that his confidence sprang from the pronouncements yesterday at the appeal court (the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal).

“This is democracy,” the Governor said, adding that the APC candidates have the right of appeal over the Senatorial seats.

“I think they will take the appropriate steps to ensure that no violence is orchestrated anywhere.

“We will follow the due process of the law and whatever will be the outcome at the end of the day, we will abide by it.”

On the verdict of the Presidential Election Tribunal Tribunal, Governor Yahaya Bello said: “nothing is as successful as success. “We are happy; Nigerians are happy and the truth is out there. We appreciate all that happened yesterday. The truth has been exposed.

“Imagine the justices sitting down for almost fourteen hours to deliver that landmark judgements yesterday. “Nigerians, within the country and in Diaspora are happy and I think it’s time to settle down and face governance.

“And I advise all those that feel aggrieved, we have only one country, Nigeria. They should all come together and support President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and ensure that we fix this country.

“Whatever hardship we are facing today is the effects of the past. “Definitely, we have Mr. fix it who is trying his best travelling around the world to ensure that Nigeria is fixed. So we are happy the matter is settled.

“As far as I’m concerned, I dont think there is any ground for appeal. I will rather appeal to them that they should drop any appeal going to the higher court and then save the resources, save the trouble, advise their supporters, admonish them that they should accept yesterday’s judgement.”
