No Resemblance Of Campaign In Kogi – Zarah Audu

By George Emine

Barely three weeks to the November 16 Governorship election in Kogi
State, Zarah Mustapha Audu, wife of Prince Mustapha Audu, has decried
the state of things in Kogi State saying “there is no resemblance of
an election in the state.


Briefing newsmen in Abuja, she said, “Yesterday (Monday), APC came out
to say they are almost rounding off their campaigns in Kogi State
because, besides the one that the state put together, the national
party carried out a very massive campaign organisation with about
seven governors and they have been campaigning.
“I am in Kogi every other week and I was in Kogi two days ago, there
is no resemblance of a campaign. We should be reaching out to the
likes of Mustapha or the Audus or the other aspirants, because we are
from different wards and different part of the states, so that they
all deliver the state for the party.
“This is how it was done for President Buhari. This is how it was done
for the late Audu in 2015, so what has changed since February?
“I can tell you categorically that there is no semblance of pacifying
our people; our people are not happy with us, so we should be making
amends to make them happy.
“Even if you have to persuade them to make you happy, at least let
them be getting ready to go in that direction. When there is no
effort, it signals problems.
“Are we going to wait for the election to come, for bloodshed and for
people to die?  She queried.
Despite the fact that her husband was not cleared by the party (APC)
to contest the primaries, she says she was still campaigning for the
party to win the election.
“I am actively sponsoring people and I continually reach out. If you
check my social media platforms, they constantly ask me who are you
with, so there is no way for me to be supporting you and giving you my
money and I do not want you to vote for the APC.
“The truth about it is, whether they like it or not, the APC is ours
so it is very stupid for us to throw away the baby with the bathwater. It cannot happen.”
She then called on Mr President, the National Chairman of the party,
and the National Working Committee to intervene urgently so that
the party does not lose the election.
