The campaign train of the Kogi State All Progressives Congress (APC) for presidential, national and state assemblies’ candidates was received by a mammoth crowd at Agasa-Uruvochinomi Junction, Okene, the country home of Governor Yahaya Bello.
The party stakeholders were led by Governor Bello in his continued efforts to galvanise votes for the party’s candidates at the presidential polls, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his vice presidential candidate, Senator Kashim Shetima as well as other candidates of the party in the state.
He assured the electorates of more people-oriented projects if the APC was voted back into office.
