KOGI GUBER: I will never endorse Bello —PRP candidate
Governorship candidate of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) in Kogi State, Ayodele Ajibola, has dissociated himself from the supposed endorsement of Governor Yahaya Bello of the All Progressives Congress for a second term in office.
Recall that a coalition of 45 political parties had at a news conference last Wednesday, adopted Bello as their sole candidate for the November 16 election.
Ajibola, while speaking with newsmen on Saturday in Lokoja, maintained that his party was prepared for the forthcoming election and would never make such endorsement.
The PRP candidate stated that he toiled to emerge as the candidate of one of the oldest political parties in Nigeria and would never trade his credibility for anything.

“We are prepared to go into the election with all seriousness and as such won’t sell ourselves and party to any party and candidate whatsoever for peanuts.
“Even if there is any agreement for endorsement with anyone in our party, it should be negotiated with the national officers of my party. The PRP at the national level has not in any way intimated me of any agreement with APC and their candidate.
“On this note, I dissociate myself and party from any endorsement of any candidate’’.
