The Kogi State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lampooned former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu after he was quoted as referring to incumbent Governor Idris Wada as a goner.

According to reports, Tinubu made the comments while campaigning for the APC candidate, Abubakar Audu ahead of the Saturday, November 21, 2015 gubernatorial elections in the state.

Speaking via a statement issued on Wednesday, November 18, 2015 was the State Publicity Secretary, Yomi Ogunmola, who chastised Tinubu, saying that the state belonged to no godfather.

He said: “One emperor came to our state today to say Governor Idris Wada is a goner.  He is not God; neither is our state where one man is more powerful than the state. No godfather rules Kogi State. Kogi State is bigger than any single individual or group of people.

“The only powerful people here are you Kogites.  Kogites will determine the political destiny of Capt. Idris Wada on Saturday and not some power thirty godfathers or group of business men who see politics as an avenue of investment. No human being outside this state no matter how highly placed, powerful or rich can determine what will happen here on Saturday. Kogi people will guard their votes with their lives. Tell the godfather from Lagos that it is he who is a joker and that Kogites are not slaves”.
