By Sunday Ajayi – Kabba
The Kogi West Senatorial, Kabba/Bunu/Ijumu Federal and Kabba/Bunu State Constituencies candidates of the ruling All Progressive Congress, Hon. Sunday Karimi, Matthew Kolawole and Seyi Bello respectively have taken their campaigns to Bunu district of Kabba/Bunu local government area of Kogi state to preach the gospel of the party to prospective voters in the area.
The campaign train which was led by the Chairman of Kabba/Bunu local government, Hon Moses Olorunleke commended the people for their support and cooperation since he assumed office in the local government, urging them to continue to be law abiding.
He said the APC is the only party that has policies that have direct impact on the livelihood of the common man, pointing out that the opposition lack the courage to address the lingering issues of infrastructure deficit that have hitherto barred the country from moving forward.
He said Nigerians have come to terms with the party because of the genuineness of its leadership to tackle the challenges confronting the country headlong, noting that the candidates of the party from the presidency to the House of Assembly are credible individuals that have what it takes to make a difference for their various constituencies.
While Hon. Sunday Karimi said his track records when he held sway as the representative of the good people of Yagba Federal Constituency at the National Assembly is enough evidence to show that he possesses the requisite knowledge and technical know-how to give Kogi West top-notch representation at the Red chambers when elected.
He said Bunu and Yagba people have come a long way hence he is expecting total support from the district, promising to connect all communities that are not connected to the national grid for them to enjoy electricity and also open up the area for economic exploits.
He said he will prioritize women and youth empowerment and give whatever is due to each of the communities and local governments that make up the district, urging the electorate to vote APC from top to bottom.
Also speaking, Rt. Hon. Matthew Kolawole commended the people for their continuous support each time he calls on them for votes, pointed out that no ward among the fifteen political wards that make up the Constituency that is left out without one or two of his Projects since he was elected in 2015, aside the employment of seventy indigenes of the area that have been gainfully employed courtesy of his efforts.
He urged the people not to listen to the opposition parties as they will only come to deceive them for votes without any expected dividends of democracy in sight, stressing that APC is the dominant party at both the national and state level, hence the area cannot afford the luxury of being in opposition for another 4 years.
He urged the parents to caution their wards not to get themselves involve in thuggery and hulligalism before, during and after the elections as the current administration will not take lightly any forms of crime and criminalities.
Highlights of the campaign visit was the donation of 100 bags of cement towards the building of Ilaa Bunu community town hall project by Hon Sunday Karimi.
Communities visited include, Apaa, Agbede, Agbadu, Odo-Ape, Aiyegunle Igun, Okebukun, Idoyi, Ilaa, IIuke and Akutupa Kiri.
