AAC Deputy Gov’ship Candidate Makes U-turn, Joins Ododo
Following the declaration of Alh. Usman Ahmed Ododo as the winner of the Saturday November 11th governorship election in Kogi state, the deputy governorship candidate of the African Action Alliance, AAC, Engr Oladeji Bamidele has disassociated himself from plans by the leadership of his party to approach the law court, seeking the cancelation of the results of the election.
Engr. Oladeji while addressing a Press conference on Thursday in Lokoja said he is ready to work with the winner of the Governor-Elect, Alh. Usman Ahmed Ododo and key into his blueprint for a prosperous Kogi state .
Oladeji congratulated the Governor Elect, describing as a proof of his intelligence and dedication to the progress of Kogi state.
He said “Your wealth of experience and sharp intellect positions you as the right candidate to propel Kogi state forward. I wholeheartedly offer myself to your service and urge all stakeholders and citizens to rally around your government, across religious, tribal, and political lines.
“Kogi state, being a gateway and sharing borders with 10 other states, needs a leader aligned with the National Renewed Hope Agenda. Your educational background, with a PhD from the University of Lagos, a first degree in Accounting from the prestigious ABU Zaria and hands on experience as the financial secretary for the local government under Governor Yahaya Bello, has equipped you with the necessary tools to lead the state to great heights”.
“As we transition from a hard-fought campaign to the governance phase, I believe that healing must start immediately. “Politics is like a football match:
They shake hands before the match
Ruffle each other up during the match but after the match, they shake hands and exchange jerseys”
Oladeji concluded by calling on Alh. Usman Ododo to work with all men of good will in Kogi state, irrespective of their previous voting pattern or history.
Congratulations once again, and may your leadership bring about positive transformations for Kogi state.
