He advised the electorates in the state not to allow themselves to be deceived again by sugar-coated mouth politicians who will lure them for votes and after elections abandon them to their fate.

“When I held sway as the governor of Anambra State for eight years, I was able to transform education, health, and infrastructure that today positively affect the lives of the citizens in the state”. He noted.

He told the electorates that if they want similar development in Kogi State in the next two years they should use their Permanent Voters Card to usher in the candidate of the Labour Party for prosperity.

In his address the National Chairman of the party, Julius Abure, urged the people of the state to vote for Labour Party as the best alternative to other political parties in the state including the ruling APC.

He noted that the governorship election has created another opportunity for the people to vote for the candidate that will right the wrongs of the past and present leadership of the state for the better.

He pointed out that the Labour Party candidate has the experience, the capacity, and the education to take the state to the promise land and urged the electorates to seize the opportunity.
