Candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for the Kogi governorship election slated for November, Idoko Kingsley Ilonah, has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) are not a threat to his party’s chances of winning the election.
In an interactive session with newsmen Tuesday in Abuja, the APGA’s candidate also said his party would resist any attempt by any force to rig the polls.
He equally asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a free, fair and credible election, stressing that APGA would monitor the activities of INEC closely to ensure that the election was transparent and the electoral laws not violated.
He said, “We believe that the era of Tinubu will be different from that of Buhari where there was electoral violence everywhere. We won’t be intimidated; the election must be free, fair and credible. Governor Yahaya Bello should discourage violence in the state.

“But the APC and PDP are not a threat to us despite their long existence in the state. I am not desperate to be governor, but I am desperate for quality leadership in Kogi State. Power comes from God.
“I am not hungry but this is a sacrifice for me. No one has the monopoly of violence. But we should stop preaching violence in politics.”
