‘We’re Coming Home to Vote for You’ – Kogi Community in Lagos Assures Ododo 

Indigenes of Kogi residing in Lagos state have declared their support for Ahmed Usman Ododo, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming governorship election in Kogi state.

They made the declaration in Lagos where the candidate and his entourage met with the people as part of activities lined up for consultations ahead of the election.

Mrs Raliat Oyetunde, a former banker, who spoke during the stakeholders’ event, said Kogi was too central to the wellbeing of the country, hence the need to ensure continuity of the laudable achievements of Governor Yahaya Bello.

“Many of us here are registered back home and many more will transfer our cards back to Kogi to ensure your victory. Kogi is bordered by 10 other states and it is the gateway to the North and South. We cannot afford to hand the state to someone who doesn’t understand the dynamics of governance. We will support you to win in November,” she assured.

The candidate, while responding, urged all Kogites home and abroad to see him as “the candidate of unity”, assuring the people that he will consolidate on the achievements of Governor Bello.

Earlier, Ododo had paid a courtesy visit to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State.

Governor Sanwo-Olu held a private meeting with the candidate where their discussions centred around winning the November 11 poll.
