- As group ask him to declare for Kogi governorship contest, vow to mobilize Kogites behind him
Some young members of the All Progressives Congress in the seven LGAs of Kogi West have hailed the investment drive of the party’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary in the state, Alh Muritala Ajaka Yakubu towards success of the party’s Presidential Candidate and all other contestants in the state ahead of the 2023 general election. The group who made the statement in a press release made available to journalists after her meeting at the senatorial headquarters over the weekend in Kabba says it is out to propagate the personality of Alh Muritala Yakubu Ajaka for Kogi governorship seat because of his popularity, selflessness and commitment to people’s empowerment.
The Chairman of the group, Kogi West APC Frontiers, Engr Festus Ibigbami says the donation of over forty eight vehicles to the party’s campaign structure in the state for APC victory ahead is an eloquent testimony of Alh Muritala’s political generosity, popularity and readiness to serve the people of the state. Engr Ibigbami says such a donation remain the first of its kind in the state and is enough to rally round the young man who have proven to be accessible, available and reliable to lead the state to her promised land. He says the party stakeholders should begin to encourage Alh Muritala to declare for Governorship of the state for the good of the state.
Speaking in the same vein, the Secretary of the Forum, Alh Bako Abdullahi says the people of Lokoja/Koto have been following the philanthropy and humanitarian services of Alh Muritala Ajaka and are fully ready, determined and available to support people like him to be the next Governor of the state because of his accessibility, humility and philanthropy. Alh Bako says the party must consider popularity and ability to win election in the choice of the next governorship Candidate for the party.
On his part, the Spokesperson of the group and APC former Publicity Secretary in Yagba West, Comrade Oluwaseun Ayodele says the party at the state is at a decisive moment where there must be deliberate search for the man who will take over from Governor Yahaya Bello who he said is an outstanding performer, he said the legacy of infrastructure, education, health care development, women empowerment and youth development Governor Yahaya Bello have laid down must be sustained, hence the need to rally round a developer of human and material resources like Alh. Muritala has become very important and urgently needed too.
The group therefore urged Alh. Muritala to declare for the governorship seat now, stating that they have constituted a team that will begin ward and LGA tour for declaration of Alh. Muritala Yakubu for Governor.
