By Muhammad Amuda – Lokoja
One of the frontline candidates of political parties contesting the November 11 Governorship Election in Kogi state, Admiral Usman Jibrin has called on his teaming supporters across the state and Kogi East Senatorial District in particular to disregard the rumors going round of the purported endorsement of a perticular individual as the consensus governorship candidate from Kogi East, stressing that such endorsement cannot stand.
He disclosed this in a press statement he personally signed by himself and posted on Facebook through Itodo Dennis account.
According to him, the stakeholders have not endorse anyone, stressing that in as much as it is desirable for Kogi East to produce the next Governor of Kogi state at the end of the current administration of Governor Yahaya Bello tenure in 2024, it is also good to go about it in a way that would be well accepted by all stakeholders concern.
Below is the details
Firstly, I would like to use this medium to appreciate my numerous supporters in Kogi East and Kogi State in general for their interest to verify the authenticity of the purported consensus candidate making the rounds especially on social media.
It is pertinent to note that there are reverend stakeholders and social cultural bodies representing various interests known to have over the decades shown direction in terms of who leads or represent our people.
This stakeholders and the social cultural bodies have not endorsed any consensus candidate. In due time, they will unanimously take a stand on the issue of consensus candidate and I therefore, call on all my supporters, well meaning indigenes of Kogi East and Kogi state in general to ignore any contrary information published by paid social media merchants.
Kindly be aware that the process for a consensus is ongoing and our people know among the leaders who can unify the state that is already polarized into ethnic and religious lines.
Kogi people are not unaware of the political situation in the state which is why they are eager to do away with nepotistic tendencies and the ploy to foist an unpopular candidate to Kogi people by the APC leadership in the state. In unison, Kogi people are ready to resist any 3rd term agenda.
In conclusion, I enjoin all supporters to disregard the insinuation that Kogi East has arrived at a consensus. May Allah bless the good people of Kogi State for their perseverance while awaiting good governance.
