As Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello search for a successor come November 11, 2023, so many factors must be considered which includes the aspirants’ political antecedents, pedigree, philanthropic efforts, and previous contributions to the development of the state and the party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
All Progressives Congress must go for a candidate who, aside from politics, has employed his resources to better the lives of the masses. Alhaji Murtala Yakubu Ajaka is the shinning star some Kogites are yet to know, especially the PhD crooners. There is no volume of political algebra that can pull him backward.
Murtala is like a water lettuce, always on top of the water. He has no backward movement, when he is pulled backward, east, west, he is also moving forward and upward. Operation Pull Him Down (PhD) syndrome will only serve as a friction to move Muri forward. Lugard House, here Ajaka comes.
Alhaji Yakubu Murtala Ajaka is the man to be hired after a successful 8 years of Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello. We clamour for a better Kogi through Murtala Ajaka. Muri, as fondly known, has reasonable pedigree to succeed Governor Alhaji Yahaya Bello compared to other contestants.
Kogites are not yearning to have a leader blessed with the talent of inflicting deep wounds on the people they are supposed to serve. We have gone through a lot and prayed for God’s intervention to ease the affairs of the masses at home front democracy. The prayer had been answered through the coming of Alhaji Yakubu Murtala Ajaka.
What better ways to describe Alhaji Ajaka’s philanthropic gestures, especially in his fatherland, Igala Land ? He is the shinning light in a real dark world of our politics. Despite the very real darkness in the world, there’s no shortage of people creating light and making a positive difference.
I love the metaphor of shining light in the darkness — because we all have the ability to seek the light and be the light.
Today, a visit to major towns and educational institutions in towns and cities across Kogi State, will validate the fact that Alhaji Ajaka is validating the ancient scroll that light is a symbol of holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, grace, hope.
In his determination to re-write the Igala leadership narratives, from his teeming capacity, he has been laying a solid foundation to define the next generation of not only Igala leaders and leadership but Kogi State and Nigeria at large . His focus has been on initiating people’s-oriented projects, programs and plans for the benefits of the people.
Murtala Ajaka has shown more courage than most of the political class. He opened his door to the ravaging communities. His ears and eyes are totally with the people.
In his own words; “the people first, the humanitarian response needs to be scaled up urgently”, this is to ensure people who remain in extremely precarious conditions have access to essentials, including food, healthcare, and shelter.
The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind constantly plotting to pull Martala Ajaka down to gain cheap popularity. You and I will forever remain an obstacle to the liberation of Kogi State, if we chose to sell our conscience for a plate of porridge. If we chose to support darkness rather than epitome of light.
What shall it profit you and me if we choose to pull Muri out politics and lose the good things God Almighty has packaged him to deliver to us; wisdom is better than silver or gold. If you hate the people’s choice you hate yourself and your Maker as well. Self-hate is a form of mental slavery that results in poverty, ignorance, and crime.
I invite you, wholeheartedly, a leader that remind you of your highest self and emancipate you from mental slavery or false beliefs and illusions. The more you invest your time, energy and intellect in voting for a leader like Murtala Yakubu Ajaka that resonate with the frequency of your true self, the more light and in fact illuminations you will bring to yourself, family and community, Kogi State and the nation at large. Besides the dog that has the support of the hunter performs a rare feat of killing a monkey.
