There is a strong indication that heads would roll aftermaths the All Progressives Congress Presidential Primary in Kogi State this week according to an impeccable source.
Recall that Gov. Yahaya Bello was amongst the first to indicate interest for the nation’s plum job, began criss crossing states, with massive endorsement by groups and individuals in the last two years.
Shockingly, Gov. Yahaya Bello scored 47 votes to finish a distant fifth behind the winner and flagbearer Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu.
Rotimi Amechi, Prof. Yemi- Osinbajo and Sen. Ahmed Lawan, who all joined the race few months and weeks to the APC Primary’s finished second, third and fourth respectively.
Angered by the outcome and the perceived betrayal displayed by some of the Governor’s aide, there is a strong indication that some Commissioners, Council Bosses, Party bigwigs and other appointees who have been found culpable would be sacked.
The Governor’s annoyance according the source began at the APC Primary’s held in the State where some anointed persons lost in there bid to pick the APC‘s ticket.
Similarly, the governor’s hammer will fall on persons who were alledged to have sold out in the APC Presidential Primaries where the state went with 63 delegates but could only garner 47 votes.
Surprisingly the source said it was discovered that even the votes scored by the Governor was alledged to have come from other sources. Thus, meaning that something fishy had gone wrong, yet the person’s in the forefront said to be mobilizing for the Governor had enough resources at there disposal.
The source disclosed that the Presidential Primary opened up a lot of shaddy deals the governor was not aware of as it was discovered that those connected were trusted aides and people close to the Governor.
It is therefore not going to be smiles this week as the State Chief Executive enters the Capital. A long list of those who have failed to lived up to expectations and played pranks at the Primaries of the APC, with much emphasis on the Presidential Primary are likely to be shown the way out.
What happened to the Governor is seen by many as a precursor to the 2024 governorship, reason why aside taking the right measures now, must make amend and run an inclusive administration.
The last couple of years has witnessed alienation, with a particular age brackets Favoured but the outcome of the last APC Primary’s showed that when decisions were made the youthful demography had little to contribute according to the source.
For now, fear grips some noteable appointees who are already aware of the treatment they would receive. Soon as the APC Primary’s ended, sources said the Governor had even barred some of such personality from seeing him.
Some Commissioners and appointees who lost the APC ticket the source added would be reinstated. Similarly, the deployment of others he said would be made. The Governor is to also appoint new person’s to fill the vacancy’s created by the absence of some former Commissioners who are Flagbearers of the APC.
