Chaos looms amongst members of the PDP in Kogi state
The dust raised by the primary election that produced Engr Musa Wada is yet to settle as more PDP chieftains in the state have expressed their willingness to either defect to the APC or stay within PDP and work against the party.
A PDP chieftain from Kogi West quoted in the report said the controversy that trailed the primary election may have ruined the chances of the party to return to power soon.
According to the chieftain who spoke under the condition of anonymity, PDP may have turned the November 16 election to a no-contest for the incumbent governor, Yahaya Bello. His words: “One of the founding fathers of the party in PDP and a former acting governor in the state, Hon. Clarence Olafemi is already gone. In Kogi politics, the fear of the likes of Olafemi is the beginning of wisdom.
In Kogi East, virtually all the PDP leaders in the camp of Ibrahim Idris have moved to the APC. Also, a source close to the candidate of the PDP candidate quoted in the report said the candidate is under pressure from his creditors even as he scouts for funds to prosecute the election.
