While expressing confidence in Alhaji Ododo’s ability to consolidate the gains of the current New Direction administration, the supporters vowed to go into the hinterlands to enlighten the people on the need to have the duo of Alhaji Ododo and Comrade Joel succeed Governor Yahaya Bello.
The participants did not only demonstrated their relevance at the grassroots, but they also exhibited the desire to evolve a united and prosperous Kogi State, hence condemning in totality the claim of those who said they were in absolute control of Igalaland.

She admonished the people to continue to intensify their support for Alh Usman Ododo.
