Akpoti rejects Gov Bello’s congratulatory message, says you attempted to kill me

Akpoti rejects Gov Bello’s congratulatory message, says you attempted to kill me

By Matthew Atungwu

Governor Yahaya Bello’s congratulations have been rejected by Senator Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan, who represents the Kogi Central Senatorial District.

It was stated that Bello gave the legislator congrats after the Appeal Court’s decision upholding her victory at the National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal.

After attending the Tuesday National Police Council meeting at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Bello congratulated the former PDP candidate for governor.

Referring to Natasha as his sister, he said that he had to accept the court’s decision in favour of Natasha in order to prevent a collapse of the state’s law and order.

However, Natasha, who appeared on Channels Television on Tuesday evening, accused the governor of having attempted to kill her on different occasions, insisting that the Kogi State helmsman does not know what democracy is about.

“I would pretty much wish you had not played the Governor’s message here because I’m just getting to watch it now,” she said on Channels Television.

“He said this is the beauty of politics, this is not the beauty of politics. You don’t endanger yourself, set out to kill people, destroy property, and frustrate the electoral process because you want your candidate to win and call it the beauty of democracy.

“I heard guns, I had his hunchmen shoot at my vehicle. I have video evidence of that. They wore APC shirts and one of them was Amoka, he was actually a Returning Officer… he led the group of 10 men to shoot at me. I have the videos capturing that.

“And apart from that, a day to the election, the governor dug five gullies, cutting off five roads and that was just to prevent the election from going on and probably endangering my life.
