The governor stated that “four years ago I was at the same venue to solicit for vote, and people voted for me,” stressing that the leadership of the party has thrown its weight behind him to run for second tenure in office.

“We have defeated him before, buried him, but he resurrected. This time we will defeat him again and put in plan for Wada to fly him to exile.”
Also speaking, the immediate past governor of Kogi state, Alhaji Ibrahim Idris urged the people to vote for PDP, saying that the party is only out to give succour to the people of the state.
Alhaji Idris who commended Governor Wada for his steadfastness in piloting the affairs of Kogi State in last four years, called on the people to give the governor their mandate once again.

Idris therefore urged the people to disregard such rumour, stressing that he is still a member of the PDP.
