The Presidential Council of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said its presidential candidate will win Kogi State as the presidential election draws near.

This was made known by Austin Ochu, the Head of Media and Publicity on Monday, January 16.

His comment comes after the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) accused the PDP of hiring supporters from neighboring states during its recent rally.

Reacting, Ochu said the allegation was “strange and laughable” as the PDP never engaged in such.

The spokesperson noted that the APC is jittery about going into next month’s contest.

The official said Nigerians “desperately want change…the time for that change is now”.

He called Kogi a PDP State, adding that the party was ready to make amends and assume power.

“We only faltered along the way but thank God we have gone back to the trenches,” he said.

The APC has been “flapping around” because the message “is very clear that the game is over”, Ochu added.
