The Director General of the PDP Governorship campaign, Senator Tunde Ogbeha has vowed that the PDP would win the election irrespective of the release of the bailout fund meant to offset workers’ salaries.
Ogbeha said this in an interview with newsmen in Lokoja just as he took a swipe at the attitude of the APC, towards the poll saying the opposition party in the state is not ready for a peaceful poll.
“It is unfortunate that the federal government allowed themselves to be used against the release of the bailout fund to the state. The level of misinformation and misgivings by the APC about the fund is bad. The bailout is not a gift but a loan to the state.
“However, I’m optimistic that with or without the bailout, PDP will win Kogi.”
He also denied the insinuation that the party may not be committed to power shift if re-elected, said the National Working Committee of the party have already keyed into the struggle.
“Aside the NWC, the only reason why I accepted the DG campaign is because of the issue of power shift. Wada has not only supported it, he has put it in his manifesto. By 100 days after he must have been sworn in, a committee for that effect will be inaugurated to work out the modality”.
