Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi has described the primary election of the All Progressive Congress (APC) for the governorship in the state as very peaceful, orderly and successful.

Mr Bello said this in a statement by his Chief Press secretary, Onogwu Mohammed, shortly after the election.

The direct mode primary election was conducted under the supervision of Zamfara State Gov. Mohammed Bello-Matawale, across the 239 wards.

Journalist who monitored the election reported that the exercise was very orderly devoid of any rancour in most of the places visited.

At Gegu Community in Kogi Local Government Area, Anyigba in Dekina LGA and at Mopa in the Yagba West LGA, the conduct of the party members was so impressive and orderly.

The governor said, “We are so glad that we haven’t received any report of violence or any crisis from Kogi East, Kogi Central and Kogi West Senatorial Districts.

“This has been our prayer from day one that the primary election of our great party this time be devoid of any crisis or violence to reflect the people’s will and aspiration.

He called on all and sundry, especially party members, to respect the outcome of the primary so as to move forward and obtain victory at the Nov 11 governorship election in the state.

In the same vein, the information commissioner, Kingsley Fanwo, described the primary election as “very peaceful” and “encouraging” based on the maturity displayed by the party members across the state.

Mr Fanwo called on residents of Kogi to emulate the display of decorum and maturity during the primary election, which he said was free, fair, credible and successful.

He thanked the primary election committee led by Mr Matawale, the officials of INEC and the security operatives for their support for the successful conduct of the APC primary in the state.
