Video: El-Rufai kneels down to beg Kogi People to Forgive Gov Bello and vote for him

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State was willing to do everything necessary to win the hearts of Kogi people as he went down on his kneels to beg them to forgive whatever Governor Yahaya Bello might have done wrong in his first term.

El-Rufai who is also the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress Gubernatorial Campaign in Kogi State made the gesture at a mega rally held for the governor in the state capital Lokoja on Thursday.

“Many people say Yahaya Bello is young and that he has fought many people. For every one that the governor has offended, I am asking all of you to forgive him. He is young, he is supposed to make mistakes. When you are young, you make mistakes, but you are supposed to learn from him. On his behalf, I am kneeling down to beg all of you to forgive Yahaya Bello if he has offended you,” the governor said.

Beyond seeking forgiveness for whatever mistakes the governor had made, Governor El-Rufai praise him for his performance and took a swipe at the Peoples Democratic Party, urging the people to “bury PDP once and for all”.

He claimed that although the PDP had ruled the state for a long time, they “have done nothing” in the state.

“In the past four years, the progress recorded by the APC government under Governor Yahaya Bello is more than what the PDP has tried to do in 13 years,” he said.

Whatever might have happened in the first tenure of Governor Bello, El-Rufai appealed to the people to know that he cares about the people of Kogi State.

Singing Bello’s praises, El-Rufai said, “He cares about this state, he has brought progress to this state, he has brought young people into government, he has brought women into government. He has brought physical progress; he has cleared salary arrears that he inherited from previous governments.
“You must all come out and support him. I beg you all.”

Among those who canvassed support for the Kogi governor at the rally ahead of Saturday’s election were the wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari; wife of the Vice President, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo; and the National Chairman of the APC, Mr Adams Oshiomhole.

  1. This is a slap on the good people of Kogi State, telling them that their future is not in their hands. See the deceitful nature of these people. Why accept the fact that Yahaya Bello really pillagevKogi State, yet you are begging that he be voted in again? What an insult. In his first tenure, he gave his people stones as bread and you are now begging that he be voted in again so as to go back there and give them snakes and scorpions. Are Kogi people not alive to their Civic responsibilities and their desire for change? See the deceits for which APC has been known for!!!
