A governorship aspirant in Kogi State, Alhaji Sulaiman Baba-Ali, on Sunday, said the natural resources in the state were not fully utilised by successive governments.

The governorship aspirant, who is a member of the All Progressives Congress, said in a statement that Kogi State could not attain financial autonomy because many solid mineral deposits had yet to be exploited by the government.

According to him, the abundant mineral deposits in the state are enough to transform the state and rescue it from over-dependence on federal allocation.

Baba-Ali said his intention to be the governor of the state was borne out of the need for change. The aspirant promised that Kogi State, under his watch, would be greater in education and economic development.

The statement read, “I am running for the governorship position and by the grace of Allah, I will get the ticket. I will bring about change that works for every Kogi indigenes; change that works for the Ebira man, the Okun man or the Igala man, change that works for the farmer, change that will bring about fairness and equity.”
