Opposing Parties "noisemakers" : Governor Ibrahim Idris
Capt Wada I. Idris

Kogi State Governor Ibrahim Idris has described those opposing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the December 3 gubernatorial election as “empty barrels that make lot of noise.”
The governor, who stated this yesterday while answering questions from newsmen at the State House, Abuja, denied that he had a PDP preferred candidate in the governorship elections. He also clarified that the party’s candidate was his candidate in the elections.

He also dismissed insinuations that there was crisis in the PDP, saying the party was prepared and will win in free and fair elections.

Asked how he was handling the crises that arose when Captain Idris Wada emerged the flag bearer of the party, he replied, “Well, I don’t know what you are talking about but I know there is a candidate for the PDP.

“I don’t have any candidate-as long as they are for PDP they are for my party so I don’t know exactly what you are talking about.”

On how prepared is the party to for the election, the governor said that PDP is fully ready for the election. He noted that “just cool down and see what is going to happen. You know in most cases you find out that empty barrels make lot of noise. Shortly you will know the truth.”
