Former Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Arc Abayomi Awoniyi, has picked the nomination and expression of interest forms for the 14th April, 2023 governorship primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a statement issued in Lokoja on Thursday, Awoniyi said the near total absence of local government administration and dysfunctional state of affairs in the state motivated him to join the race.
He posited that with the state’s rich endowment in abundant human and material resources, Kogi deserves to be in a better place in the comity of states.
The Lisa of Mopa said his desire to vie for the office is not for self- promotion or personal aggrandizement, but as a result of his genuine belief that he possesses the character, capacity, competence, commitment, knowledge, experience and resolve to address the myriad of problems besetting the state.
He solicited the prayers of all Kogites and urged them to join hands with him in seeking to do what is good for the state.
Awoniyi, who presently serves as the Director General, Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign in Kogi State, under the chairmanship of former Governor Ibrahim Idris, stressed that at the moment, he is totally focused on the much bigger assignment of ensuring total victory at the polls on the 25th February 2023.
He said victory for PDP at the Presidential and National Assembly elections is germane for the success of the party in subsequent political engagements.
