The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo will be leading governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC and other chieftains of the party to the Kogi Central campaign for Prince Abubakar Audu, the governorship candidate of the APC in Kogi.
The event will hold at the Ebira Day Pavillion, Okene on Tuesday, starting from 1:00pm while Prof. Osinbajo is expected to address party faithfuls at the rally by 4:30pm.
The Vice President and other APC governors, especially from the South West are expected to woo the people of Okene, a Yoruba-speaking part of Kogi state.
Meanwhile the National Working Committee (NWC) of APC has presented the party’s flag to Audu.
Presenting the flag to the candidate at the Lokoja Confluence Stadium in Lokoja, the state capital, the National Chairman of the APC, John Oyegun, said that it was time for Kogi State to join the change train and move forward.
He stressed that APC was ready to take over Kogi State from the ruling PDP and urged residents to vote en mass for the party’s candidate.
Mr Audu, in response, vowed to pay the state government’s workers all their accumulated arrears if elected.
He also promised to ensure that after his tenure, power would be shifted to other senatorial districts of the state.
