I’m running to rescue Kogi — AUDU

KOGI State Governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Prince Abubakar Audu, has said that his entrance into the race is to rescue the state from its present state of under-development and woes.

Audu, who stated this while addressing journalists on his mission to the United Kingdom, noted that the Kogi has retrogressed since he left government 13 years ago hence the need to salvage it from imminent collapse.

Audu also said his party, APC, has excelled in all the states it has governed and urged the people of the state to give APC the same opportunity in Kogi so as to attain the desired growth and development in the next dispensation.


Audu said youth development, employment generation, wealth creation and massive investment in infrastructure development will be his major focus, if voted into power.

“It is regrettable that despite the huge allocation accruing to the state, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led- government has failed to make any appreciable mark in physical and human capital development,” he added.

On his effort to dislodge the ruling PDP, Audu said: “As you can see, I am back refreshed, rejuvenated and fully prepared for the main election after my victory at the primary election of our great party, which I won convincingly. I can assure you that our party will carry the day. We have always won previous elections but we are always denied the opportunity. But things will be different this time around with the card readers in place. My people of Kogi state I will not disappoint you and I will never take your support for granted.”
