Buhari who is making his first appearance in the governorship campaign since he became President, did not participate in Kogi and Bayelsa that was won by Yayaha Bello, All Progressive Congress and Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) candidate, Seriake Dickson respectively.
Expressing his joy for Buhari presence, Adams Oshiomle said: “Today is my happiest day. I am standing here not as an orphan. For seven and half years, I was standing alone. But today my brothers and our papa are here. Why should I not be proud?”
