Speaking further, he said “In 2015 we did all we could do humanly possible to unseat the incumbent governor of the state which was PDP.God almighty gave us victory and let me say that at the gate of government house God shut the gate . As human beings we still have to thank God .
“God has again given us another opportunity for us to kick start another rescue mission , as it is today the government in power has failed the common people of Kogi state and for us to get it right in tune and in line with the manifesto of the All Progressive Congress , we have to bring a very good and strong tusk bearer on board.

According him, he must be someone who put food on the table of the people, where the good people of Kogi state will access quality road , the civil servants in Kogi state will collect their salary and other emolument as at when due.

” In fielding candidate for general election you have to do character analysis of all the aspirants and knowing the leadership of APC too well, I believe that whatever modality that will be brought to bear in bring the ticket to table , I think Admiral Jibril Usman stands as the best aspirant and the only choice of the party to ensure victory at the general election.
“I am very sure and we are not scare and as such we know the people of Kogi state too well that they will go for the best. Even the delegates of the party are part of the suffering masses of the state and they will do their best to produce credible candidate.Share this on WhatsApp
