Candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) in the Kogi governorship election, Dabo Dantele Yusuf, has alleged that the results of the November 16 polls have already been prepared.
According to him, the result has been written in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Yahaya Bello.
He made the claims at an interactive session with the Forum of Igala Journalists (FORIJA) in Abuja.
Yusuf claimed the APC was working in collaboration with the Resident Electoral Commissioner of INEC in the state.
He said: “I am a politician and an insider. I have intelligence reports made available to me by some of my friends in their camp.
“The result of November 16 governorship has been written in favour of the APC governorship candidate. This also confirms INEC’s earlier complaint that they are ready to do their job, but Nigerian politicians are their problems.
“I want to call on the federal government to ensure that free, fair and credible election is held in Kogi State. If there is good governance in Kogi, it is also a credit to the Federal Government of the day”, Dantele noted.
Dantele faulted the federal government for supporting the Kogi State governor despite what he described as “governance failure”, adding that President Muhammadu Buhari never visited Kogi State to commission any project in five years.
While expressing confidence that he would emerge victorious in the polls, Yusuf said he would pay off the huge debt already incurred by Yahaya Bello administration in a manner that it would not affect regular payment of workers’ salaries.
