SENSE OR NONSENSE? Violence Is Not Enough To Discredit Kogi Election’ – Governor Yahaya Bello Says

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state has said the Saturday November 16th election in the state that saw him emerging winner, should not be discredited because of pockets of violence witnessed during the election.

Bello said this in an interview with Channels TV on Tuesday morning November 19th. Reacting to claims made by many civil society groups including the European Union (EU) that the election was characterized by widespread incidents of violence and voter intimidation, Bello said

“The conduct of the election was quite very credible, a level-playing field was provided and it was free and fair. In every election, there is bound to be one issue or the other and you can’t take a pocket of issues to judge the general conduct of the election.

“Regarding the comment of the civil society organisation, they are entitled to their own opinion but let us know the parameters with which they are judging this election. How many pooling units did they visit out of 2548 polling units, 239 wards and 21 local governments across the difficult terrains of this state? How many people have they reached out to?

“We have over 6000 votes cast, have they interviewed all the electorates? So what are their yardsticks.?”.

  1. This man has no conscience at all. People died and are still dying and he’s spewing trash. A woman was burnt to death and all he could say of the disaster that occurred in his fraudulent election win is this? Both him and his cohorts will will never go unpunished. He is only concerned about his victory not minding that families are in mourning mood. What a governor?

  2. You can lie to yourself all you want but the collective sensibility of the people of Kogi State will prevail over you in due course. I’m sure you are telling yourself that to make you sleep better at night
