Similarly, Kogi State Government has also dismissed allegation of disrupting the Presidential campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.

A statement from the Director-General of Media and Publicity to the governor of Kogi state, Kingsley Fanwo, said the PDP had continued to promote its “litany of lies” in the face of a failed rally in the state.

“They first lied that we denied them of the use of our stadium until we made public a letter conveying the governor’s approval to use the stadium.

“The next on their Dubai-engineered list of lies is that we are planning to cause crisis to disrupt the rally. Again, we say it is another PDP style of covering up their known failings.

“As a government, we respect the person of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and the office he held. We won’t use the kind of motor park language of the Presidential Campaign Council of the PDP in the state to describe their own presidential candidate,” the statement read.
