As part of its effort to reclaim power in 2023, the pro Igala group operating under the aegis of Igala Vanguard has identified personalities within the rank of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State who have sworn an oath secretly to sabotage the Igala’s agitation for a return of power in 2023.

The group in a statement by its National Coordinator, Engr Lawrence Ankpa warned those personalities who have signed a pact with Yahaya Bello’s current Chief of Staff, Pharmacist Jamiu Asuku as Bello’s successor come 2023.

Ankpa said such an eventuality is just a mere wishful thinking and has identified some key Kogi East political leaders as being the champion of what he called selfish 2023 agenda. Ankpa while warning against the repeat of ENEMUNEME slogan of 2019 said Kogi State has suffered enough in the hands of Bello and the State is eager for fresh air.
