The attention of the Kogi State APC Governorship Campaign Council has been drawn to a concocted video being circulated by the delusional mob of ethnocentric bigots around the SDP Governorship Candidate, suggesting that the election in which they were drenched in straight defeat was rigged.

It is easy to accept the kind of thinking around the candidate, given the kind of archaic strategies that are giving birth to failure. The Social Democratic Party and its thugs put up an autocratic gangsterism against democracy in Kogi East during the Governorship election apart from the blood that was spilled in the build up to the poll.

The November 11 Governorship Poll remains one of the most peaceful and credible in the political history of Kogi State. The flashes of killings and thuggery by the SDP gun men was not enough to blight the defining moment of our democratic history as a people.

The release of the concocted video on a day the SDP is battling with the determination of the people to make them do the right thing is a road-side strategy to divert the people’s attention from the heavy cloud of controversy on their inability to file their petition within the constitutionally approved period. Our party will continue to follow the saga and ensure that the right thing is done. When the citizens rise to defend their rights, democracy is enriched. It is unfortunate . The antinomianism of the SDP should be a thing of concern for all Kogites.

The State Director of the DSS and the Commissioner of Police in charge of Kogi State Command seem to have licenced the violence and illegality of the SDP. Releasing and circulating concocted videos to discredit a credible election and stir insurrection is a clear sin against the laws of the land. But the two security chiefs have put us in no doubt that they are in Kogi to defend the illegalities of the SDP.

The danger of having the SDP go scot free with their disregard for the rule of law is dangerous as it may spark a major breakdown of law and order. We must be deliberate on the need to avoid disregard for constitutionalism.

We urge the general public to disregard the concocted video and ask SDP to explain how they got those ballot papers. They have questions to answer. Our party has won a free, fair and credible election and the mandate of the people can only be renewed in 2027.
