LOKOJA — The flag-bearer of All Progressives Congress, APC, for the November 21 governorship election in Kogi State, Prince Abubakar Audu, has said he knows how to fix the problems of the state better than any other candidate in the poll.
Audu, who stated this at at Okpo in Olamaboro Local Government Area of the state during his campaign rally to the area, weekend, said the time had come for people of the state to enjoy the dividends of democracy.
He said: “There is nothing stopping people of the state from enjoying the full dividend of democracy, but with the present crop of leadership on the stage, it may turn out to be a wishful thinking.”
He implored the people of the area to keep a date with him on November 21 by voting APC to power for dividends of democracy to be distributed evenly among the various segments of the state.
Audu said: “You should not entertain fear any longer. My blueprint that will turn things around in the state is ready and waiting to be implemented to transform the state once I’m voted into power on November 21.”
“Today, in the civil service, you are hearing of percentage payment, promotion without cash backing and non payment of salary, it is very disheartening. I assured workers of full pay and no retrenchment, including payment of all their arrears, if am voted.”
Audu, who also lamented the deplorable state of many of the state roads, especially the main link roads in Ofu and Olamaboro, assured the people of the areas of quick intervention if he won the election with their votes.
