Kogi State, is again, about to be greeted with palpable political tension as current and past members of the State Assembly are said to have perfected plans to dump the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Our source who begged anonymity, claims the disenchanted legislators are in talks with the leadership and opinion moulders of both the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP) in the State.
“Yes, it is true we are considering moving to where our political values will be appreciated. We have suffered to build this party, we gave our all despite the harsh working conditions that we had to endure, yet, the powers that be in the State want us out.
We are politicians, we can not remain idle especially, in this moment of imminent electioneering, we are therefore, seriously weighing our options and as soon as, a common beneficial agreement is reached especially, with the interest of our people in the top front burner, we shall make the move with our supporters.
We have met with a former Governor of our dear State, and I can assure you, we had a very fruitful discussion.”
