Kogi APC hails voters for electing Ododo

The All Progressives Congress in Kogi State has hailed the electorates in the state for shunning ethnicity and voting for the candidate of the party, Usman Ododo.

The Director of Media and Publicity/Spokesperson for the Kogi State Governorship Campaign Council, Kingsley Fanwo, who said this at a “Thank You Press Conference”, in Lokoja, on Tuesday, said the resounding victory of the APC had strengthened the social contract between the party and the people of Kogi State.

“It has also upscaled the onus of responsibility on us to continue to provide first-class schools, health institutions, road infrastructure and many others that the current administration in the state has been doing over the past 7 years and 9 months,” he stated.

“Our candidate and now the Governor-Elect, Alh. Ahmed Usman Ododo, won the election across the three Senatorial Districts while the ethnic agenda candidate claimed to have won in his own Senatorial District alone. He didn’t win any Local Government Area in the West or Central. Ododo won all the Local Government Areas in two of the three Senatorial Districts and went ahead to win one Local Government Area in the East Senatorial District,” he said.

The party thanked the people of Kogi Central for turning out in their thousands to concretise the dominance of the All Progressives Congress in Kogi State, noting that “the massive turnout is no surprise as we witnessed a mammoth turnout during our Kogi Central rally. The numbers that came out to vote showed the rally crowd wasn’t a ruse.”

The APC also commended the people of Kogi West Senatorial District, saying the zone delivered six of the seven Local Government Areas in the District to the party.

“Your turnout and massive support for the All Progressives Congress showed your faith in a united and prosperous state where leaders are elected based on competence rather than ethnic bigotry,” it said.

“We thank Mr President for creating a level playing ground for all the candidates. We also thank the leadership of the party and other APC Governors and leaders for rallying behind us to retain one of the most important states in Nigeria in the progressive fold.

“The Governor-Elect, Alh. Ahmed Usman Ododo will not disappoint you all. Governor Yahaya Bello has made it easy for the All Progressives Congress to continue to win elections in Kogi with his heroics in all the sectors of the economy,” the party said.
