Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello says he will not resign over his double voters card registration

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in Kogi State has called on Governor Yahaya Bello to resign for registering twice for permanent voter card.

A Senator, Dino Melaye, made the call on behalf of the party at a news briefing in Abuja on Friday. The chairman of the APC in Kogi, Hadi Ametuo, agreed with Mr. Melaye, adding that it was the position of the party. Mr. Melaye said the people of Kogi State and the party were dissociating themselves from the act and called on Mr. Bello to resign immediately or risk impeachment.



INEC last week issued a statement accusing Yahaya of committing an illegality by doing his voters registration twice. In a statement released by his Director-General on Media and Publicity, Kingsley Fanwon today, Yahaya said those demanding for his resignation are political jokers.

According to Yahaya, the issue of his double registration during the exercise is being overblown by his opponents to score cheap goals. He ‎said he welcomes INEC's decision to cancel the latter registration.
