A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Kogi State, Chief Adeyemi Ojo has warned against imposition of candidates ahead of the 2023 general elections. 

Chief Ojo in a statement told the leadership of the party in the state that it will be counterproductive to impose candidates against the will of the people. 

The chieftain said the party must learn a lesson from what happened in 2019 where imposition led to the emergence of weak candidate that made PDP to win the Kabba/Bunu/Ijumu federal Constituency, adding that a repeat of such scenario should be avoided. 

“As a members of our great party in this constituency, we must be able to speak up so that the party will not derail from our long standing principles of fairness, equity and justice.

“It therefore becomes important to note that Kabba/Bunu is an important and civilize constituency in the political permutations of our dear state, our party must not allow some politicians to highjacked the party.

“2023 therefore becomes a very defining moment for members of the party in constituency to contribute their quota to ensure we have a successful outing in next year’s general elections.

He urged the party to demonstrate a strong and just will to ensure that no one is accorded undue advantage over another, advising that all contestants must be freely allowed to test their popularity at the primary so that delegates can elect the best who eventually becomes the candidate of the party.
