A governor that kept campaigning against violence only in the television and on the pages of newspapers, but indulged in breeding thugs felt short of expectation“

These are the sad trends we are going to change within a twinkle of an eye when we assumed duty by the grace of God in November.

basic and secondary schools in Kogi State are in bad shape, moribund, their success are only on the pages of Television and newspapers, which we are determined to reverse if voted into power.

“When our late former Kogi Governor was alive, Prince Abubakar Audu, whenever he established hospitals he created employment opportunities, like wise schools, but in Kogi today the reverse is the case. Teachers are employed fraudulently and payment was outstanding for many months, how do you expect them to survive”.
