ABUJA – Contrary to the reports in some quarters that the All Progressives Congress, APC has settled for Yahaya Bello as replacement for its late candidate, Abubakar Audu in the Kogi State governorship election, the party has refuted the claims, saying that it has not taken a position on the issue yet.
Bello came second in the party’s first primary election that eventually produced Audu as the former flag bearer of the party in the November 21 election.
His name began to make the rounds following the announcement of fresh primary election by the national chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun.
This was even as other interests which involved Audu’s first son, Mohammed and his running mate, Hon. James Faleke abound.
But speaking to Vanguard on Saturday on the issue, the Acting National publicity secretary of APC, Comrade Timi Frank said that the party was yet to decision on Audu’s replacement.
“We are still consulting on the issue. We would take a final stand on the issue of Audu’s replacement on Monday and we are definitely going to issue a statement on the issue”, he said.
