We are very proud of the capacity, passion, intelligence, and proficiency of our brothers that are soliciting opportunity to serve as Governor of Kogi state. Indeed, they are ALL well qualified to run as Governor of the state.
We salute the sacrificial promises of all the candidates who pledge to support any consensus candidate that will emerge, a further clear demonstration of love to their father’s land.
At the end of the group’s assessment, Alhaji Muritala Yakubu Ajaka emerges as the most popular and most widely accepted candidate. His commitment to Kogi East courses over the years and his experience as a national party administrator stands him out.
The time to show true love and loyalty to Kogi East and its people is now!
We enjoin all our brothers who are engaged in this race to support him in this quest to salvage the entire State. We equally call on Alhaji Muritala Yakubu Ajaka to reach out to his brothers and build consensus with them on how to run the state for the benefit of all citizens.
We give glory to God for the opportunity of this exercise.
League of Kogi East Professionals. (LKEP).
