Only Bello can defeat Bello, says APC

Kogi Guber: Group wants Bello screened out over double registration
The Kogi State All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Campaign Council has said with the array of personalities in its fold and increase in support across the state, it means only Governor Yahaya Bello can defeat himself in the November 16 governorship election.

The Chairman of Media and Publicity of the Bello/Onoja Campaign Council, Mr. Kingsley Fanwo, said in a statement at the weekend in Lokoja that the APC candidate would shatter all records in the election.

Fanwo, who is also the Director-General on Media and Strategy to the Governor, said: “From (Kogi) East to Central and West, the groundswell of support across the state has demoralised the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the election. The state has never been this united behind a governorship candidate.

“The Senator Smart Adeyemi-led campaign council comprises the movers and shakers of Kogi politics. With the arrival of Hon. James Abiodun Faleke and the aspirants who contested against the governor, it has shown that APC will win the coming governorship election massively.

“It is a bad time for the PDP and we sincerely sympathise with the main opposition party. They have lost their leaders to the APC; they have lost thousands of their members to the APC, and also recently lost their only senator (Dino Melaye) in the state. He will soon be replaced with a competent senator in the person of Senator Smart Adeyemi.

“No matter their grandstanding, we know they are in a big crisis. They are imploding and exploding. We won’t allow them to dictate the direction of our campaign, as we are poised to campaign with the giant strides of the GYB administration.

“Our candidate has united the state, provided more educational facilities, revamped our health institutions, built the second largest rice mill in the state and many infrastructural facilities such as roads and others.

“We urge our supporters to make peace the fulcrum of our campaign, as the governor abhors violence. We also advise our opponents to sign up to our Peaceful Election Initiative.”

Fanwo said with his landmark achievements, the governor has made his campaign easy, adding that the strides of the governor are enough to win him re-election.

He hailed the people for supporting their leader, noting that the governor would not disappoint them.

“The reality in Kogi State is on the faces of the enthusiastic women, youths and men, who are determined to re-elect the governor.”

We thank the Guild of Investigative Journalists for the unbiased report that has given impressive commendation to the state government.

“We are not perfect, but posterity will be kind to our group, for his legacies as the best governor ever in the history of Kogi State,” Fanwo said.

Two ways Manchester United could line up with Donny Van de Beek transfer

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

The Guardian report that United are hopeful of signing the Dutch star who has attracted interest from several other elite clubs.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

We looked at two ways United could line-up next season if they complete the signing of the versatile Dutchman.

This system would allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to accommodate each of his most potent attacking threats.

While Van de Beek is most effective in a box-to-box role, he has experience shielding the back four and could provide the platform for Paul Pogba to roam in a double midfield pivot.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…

BBNaija 2020: I will find you a Bayelsa wife, someone like me – Nengi tells Ozo

Big Brother Naija housemate, Nengi, on Sunday said she will find Ozo a Bayelsa wife.

Nengi said this when Ozo said he wanted to take her on a trip after the reality show.

Ozo, however, said he was not interested in another Bayelsa wife.

“I will find you a wife when we leave this place. I will find you someone like me from Bayelsa,” Nengi told Ozo.

But Ozo responded, “if I wanted someone else, I would have chosen.”

Nengi further stated that, “When we leave the house there will be a lot of girls interested in you and you won’t have my time.”

Agreeing that it was a possibility, Ozo insisted he had found something special in her.

Nengi had warned Ozo against mistaking their friendship for a love relationship.

She had maintained that she would not date anyone in the house but Ozo is still trying and working hard to see if she could change her mind.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …
