A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Alhaji Abdulkadir Ahmed, has alleged that some aspirants seeking to become the party’s flagbearer at the primary election on Saturday are moles.
Speaking on Wednesday in Abuja, Ahmed said more than a dozen aspirants parading themselves as APC governorship aspirants were moles loyal to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“We have it on good authority that the PDP is sponsoring 15 of the 28 governorship aspirants expected to contest the next Saturday’s primary poll,” he said.
“The PDP is determined to ensure that one of its own flies the party’s tickets and it has committed huge resources to actualise the project.
“If the ‘APC candidate wins the November 21 poll, he will move back to his original platform, the PDP,” he alleged.
Reacting to the claim, PDP Vice Chairman South-south, Dr. Cairo Ojougboh, said Ahmed was raising a false alarm.
“If they know the PDP is sponsoring these aspirants, why can’t they disqualify them during the screening?” he quipped.
“They (APC) are not ready for the coming Kogi State governorship elections.
“We are ready and they know that the people will vote for us again. They are only trying to find excuses where there is none so that when we win, they would say we rigged,” he added.
