The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Kogi State chapter, has reacted to the words of the former governor of Lagos state and National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu that governor Idris Wada of the PDP is a goner in Saturday poll.
The PDP, through its State Publicity Secretary, Yomi Ogunmola, said that Tinubu is not God and cannot dictate for the people of the state.
“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,” he said in the statement.
He added that the political destiny of Wada on Saturday will be determined by the people of the state and not any godfather, stressing that Kogites will guard their votes.
“The only powerful people here are you Kogites. Kogites will determine the political destiny of Capt. Idris Wada on Saturday and not some power thirty 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”.
