Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello on Saturday denied claims that he is part of those plotting the removal of the embattled National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Oshiomhole had claimed some governors and a minister are behind his ordeal because of their selfish ambition to hijack the party for personal gains.
Corroborating Oshiomhole, the party’s National Vice-Chairman (South-South), Hilliard Eta had listed Bello as one of the major culprits causing the ongoing crisis in the party.
According to him “Those people mentioned in that story are the major culprits; perhaps if you add Yahaya Bello of Kogi State there, it will be complete.
However, speaking in a chat with Daily Independent, Kingsley Fanwo, Kogi state Commissioner for Information denied Eta’s claim. He said Bello will never do anything that will disrupt the peace of the party.
“Governor Yahaya Bello will never do anything that will disrupt the peace of APC. His interest has always been the peace and stability of the party”.
“He is a true party man whose interest is the continued political relevance even beyond 2023,” he said.
