Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has vowed to deal with leaders of the All Progressives Congress who allegedly betrayed him during the November 11 governorship election in the state.
Osun Defender reports that Ododo of the All Progressives Congress was declared winner of the governorship election, beating off challenges from Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and Social Democratic Party, SDP’s Muri Ajaka.
The Governor who spoke during a closed-door meeting with stakeholders of the party in Lokoja, said he would not hesitate to deal with anyone who hinders him from going far.
Bello noted that many of his allies betrayed him because of his choice of Usman Ododo as his successor, adding that they sold him out.
He said “All of those disgruntled elements” moved against him “after everything I did for them.”
“I was fighting known enemies while enemies within were pulling me down. God punish you all.
“They said if it can’t be me, then it can’t be Ododo. They were busy conniving and conspiring with the opposition.
“They call themselves leaders but were misleading the people.
“Shame on you all.”
The Governor specifically accused a Senator from the state whom he said was “wrecked” by his brothers before he (Governor Bello) revived him from his alleged financial bankruptcy.
“Today, you are a second-term serving senator. You were laughing with us while you went behind to text opposition messages to hinder our party from having 25 per cent in some local governments,” he added.
