During my tenure, we have made significant strides in reducing poverty and unemployment in Kogi State. We have surpassed the employment record of past administrations, employing more workers than they did combined.

Additionally, we have made considerable strides in reducing poverty levels, surpassing the achievements of previous administrations. We have diligently worked to remove non-deserving beneficiaries from our payroll, ensuring that resources are allocated efficiently.

Furthermore, my administration has prioritized empowering our people and teaching them sustainable skills. We have successfully created more millionaires in Kogi State than all previous administrations combined.

Our approach focuses on equipping individuals with the tools and knowledge to become self-sufficient, rather than simply providing handouts. This approach ensures long-term prosperity and contributes to the growth and development of our state.

Looking ahead, I firmly believe that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will retain power in Kogi State. With the foundation we have laid and the progress we have made, our successor will be able to take the state to even greater heights.

We are confident in our party’s ability to continue delivering positive change and improving the lives of the people of Kogi State.

What factors influenced the selection of Usman Ododo as the APC candidate for the upcoming governorship election in Kogi State on November 11th?

Usman Ododo and I do not share any family ties. While it is true that we may both come from the same area in Kogi, we have made a conscious effort to move beyond the influence of ethnicity, religion, and social class.

In the past 19 years, these sentiments have hindered our progress, but since my term as governor began, we have prioritized merit over these divisive factors.

We have successfully moved away from a system where one’s family background or connections determine their eligibility for office.

Today, we focus on empowering individuals based on their abilities and potential, regardless of their social or ethnic background. This has allowed us to place people from humble beginnings in important positions throughout the state.

Regarding Ododo, he is an exceptional individual who possesses great compassion. He emerged as the winner in a highly competitive primary election, demonstrating his outstanding qualities and earning the trust and support of the party.

Reports have come in regarding attacks on campaign offices of various political parties. My administration is taking these incidents seriously and has instructed security agencies to take action against political thugs and criminals regardless of their affiliations.

We are committed to ensuring a violence-free election before, during, and after the November 11th election in Kogi State. I assure you that it will be not only free, fair, and credible but also the most peaceful election in the history of the state and Nigeria.

Having overseen previous elections, I am continuously learning and striving to improve my performance. I am determined to make this upcoming election secure.

We are currently strategizing to effectively handle all kinds of criminals leading up to election day. I have confidence in the abilities of law enforcement agencies to excel in their duties both before and during the election.
