He urge the stakeholders of the West, Central and Est to converge on a negotiation table to guarantee great electoral victory that will be symbiotically beneficial to all. He argued that we are all one and must continue to live as one for the good of all. Omoluabi Bode Adeyemi further said that if sincere appraisal would be conducted, it will be undeniably obvious that Ododo Ahmed Usman is the only Candidate with heterogeneous configuration and pan Kogi political structure. He stated that Ododo has been well groomed to continue an undoubtedly great Political leadership that have brought about outstanding development, equitable distribution of Projects and resources.
