LOKOJA—Cabinet members of Governor Idris Wada of Kogi State have dismissed reports of their defection to All Progressives Congress, APC, ahead of the November 21 governorship election in the state.
The cabinet members, who spoke under the aegis of Forum of Commissioners and Special Advisers, said they remained resolute to deliver votes for their boss, Wada, on election day.
Spokesperson of the forum, Abdulrahman Wuya, described the report in the national daily (not Vanguard) as desperation of the opposition party, laced with malice to cause disaffection between the governor and his cabinet members.
He said: “Desperation on the path of the opposition is responsible for this imaginary report.
“We wish to state categorically that no commissioner in the administration of Idris Wada has left or planning to defect from Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.”
The forum urged members and supporters of the party to ignore the story, stressing that PDP remained the party to beat.
