Kogi East Residents Promises Support For Ododo

Supporters of the All Progressives Congress in the Kogi East Senatorial District have promised they would vote massively for the candidate, Usman Ododo, in the November 11 gubernatorial elections.

This was as they came out in their thousands in the Anyigba area of the state to show their support for the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate.

The Igala indigenes, especially those who defected publicly from the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and African Democratic Congress (ADC) to the ruling APC, as well as other illustrious Igala sons and daughters, said what the crowd witnessed on Saturday was an unusual one in the history of electioneering in Kogi Easta and a show of support for Usman Ododo, adding that he would get massive votes in the Kogi East.

In his remarks, Shaibu Abubakar Audu, the Director-General, of the Kogi APC Governorship Campaign Council, and Minister of Steel Development, said the only agenda for the APC was the ‘Kogi Agenda,’ adding that Usman Ododo was coming to build on the legacies of Governor Yahaya Bello.

Abdullahi Bello, the Chairman of APC in Kogi State, expressed satisfaction with the enthusiasm displayed and the massive turnout by the indigenes of Kogi East.

He implored them to sustain the tempo to clear the way for a landslide victory in the governorship election.

Addressing the people, Edward Onoja, the deputy governor of the state, implored the people of the area to vote on the strength of continuity and cautioned against sentiments, stating that elections are about political parties and not religion, tribe, or region.

In his speech, Governor Yahaya Bello warned the people against ethnicity, stressing that ethnic politics had no place in this time and age.

“Alhaji Usman Ahmed Ododo is a refined gentleman with cognate experience in public service and politics.

“On assumption of office, we met a state divided along ethnic and other fault lines. We have been able to cement all those fault lines. Today, issues of ethnicity have been buried. Fairness, equity, and justice have replaced mediocrity and ethnicity,” the governor said.
