Kogi: Late Audu's Brother Declares Support for Gov. Bello

The immediate younger brother of the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the November 21st 2015 election, late Prince Abubakar Audu, has declared support for Governor Yahaya Bello.

Prince Yahaya Audu was in Government House Lokoja, where he received the posthumous award conferred on the late leader by Governor Bello during the 25th Anniversary Celebrations of the state creation. He said the family was humbled by the honour done to them by the governor, adding that it is only the present administration that has ever remembered the work of the former governor.

Prince Audu commended the Governor for renaming the state-owned university after his late brother, stressing that the present administration meant well for the people of the state.

The younger Audu, who came in the company of some notable political associates of the late leader, said what the state needs is unity and peaceful coexistence in order to harness and realise the political dreams of the first governor of the state, Prince Abubakar Audu.

Prince Abubakar Audu was the Governorship candidate of the APC in the last gubernatorial poll in the state but died before the election was concluded. His party substituted him with Alhaji Yahaya Bello to conclude the process of the election.
