PDP raises alarm over plot to incite Kogi people against two ex-governors


The People's Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi state has accused Mr. Edward Onoja, the Chief of Staff to Governor Yahaya Bello, of planning to incite the people of the state against two former governors, Capt Idris Wada and Alhaji Ibrahim Idris in a campaign of calumny.

The State PDP spokesperson, Dickson Achadu, in a statement yesterday, said: “Onoja’s latest charade is in a video, where he literally whipped up sentiments against the former governors and their offspring.

“In the trending video, Onoja accused the two PDP leaders of plotting to force their wards into governorship and other leadership positions in the state.

“He is unhappy that a son of His Excellency, Alhaji Ibrahim Idris is among the strong contenders for the Kogi governorship and called for an uprising against the family.”

Achadu urged residents of the state to disregard Onoja’s “vituperations and call to insurrections. Furthermore, we encourage them not to despair in the face of the glaring ineptitude of the APC government,” he said.
