A Lokoja-based businessman and Chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Jimoh Fancy Tiamiyu, on Thursday called on the people of Kogi State to come out en masse and vote for Alhaji Ahmed Usman Ododo, the candidate of APC in the governorship election holding on Saturday, November 11, 2023 in Kogi State.
Tiamiyu, a grassroots mobilizer who is the Director General (DG) of the APC Campaign Organisation for Alhaji Ododo in Lokoja Local Government Area, said his party’s candidate remains the only contestant that can be trusted to take Kogi to the next level, continuing from where the outgoing Governor Yahaya Bello would stop.
According to the APC stalwart, “The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Ahmed Usman Ododo, is obviously the candidate to beat in the Kogi governorship election taking place on Saturday. He has been in the government of the outgoing governor, His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, holding key positions of authority. Therefore, he clearly understands the process of governance better than any of the other persons seeking to occupy the Kogi gubernatorial seat after Governor Yahaya Bello.
“Alhaji Ododo has the leadership qualities and everything it takes to govern Kogi and bring the dividends of democracy to the good people of the state. We have no doubt that Kogi will be better under Ododo’s watch as he is the only one that can ensure judicious and prudent application of available resources to transform the state. He is the only candidate that can sustain the developmental efforts of the outgoing governor to take Kogi to greater heights.
“I therefore call on eligible voters in Kogi State to come out in large numbers to vote massively for the APC candidate, Alhaji Ahmed Usman Ododo. Don’t be deceived by those who have nothing to offer, those who do not have the capacity, experience and leadership acumen to govern a state. It would be a disaster to place Kogi in the hands of such persons. Ododo is well-groomed to govern Kogi effectively and efficiently in the interest of the people. Let’s give him our votes and we will definitely not regret it.”
Top opponents of Ododo in the guber contest include Alhaji Murtala Ajaka of Social Democratic Party (SDP) and Senator Dino Melaye of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
