The youths from seven (7) LGAs of Kogi West has charged the leaders from the zone in various parties especially APC and PDP to support candidates from the senatorial zone. 

Arising from an emergency meeting in Kabba, the youth said its time for the zone to produce the next governor of the state in the interest of peace, equity and justice, adding that the zone has made a lot of sacrifices for the stability of the state in the last two decades. 

The spokesperson of the group, Comrade Najeem Isiaka Bolaji who signed the communique said the youths would not hesitate to declare any leader from the zone as persona non grata if they go against the candidate of the zone in the incoming primaries of all parties.

According to him, the youths have carefully studied the present situations in the state before taking the decision. He said the Kogi East has had their share and it would amount to immorality for them to want to come back to power.

He said ordinarily, the West would have supported Gov. Bello for second term but his lacklustre performances which earned him the worst governor in the state in particular and the country in general.

“Even at a point, the paramount ruler of Ebira, Ohinoyi Ado Ibrahim spoke against gov. Bello second term. As it’s today, governor Bello’s kinsmen are not proud of his achievements,” he added.

He appealed to leaders from the zone; Senator Smart, Prince Shola Akanmode, Olumoroti George Olushola, Saidu Akawu, Mabo Kassim, Hon Adedoyin, Hon Shabban Shuaibu and others to rescind their decision and supports Kogi West candidates in the overall interest of the zone.

The spokesperson said the youths are proud of Sen. Dino Melaye and Barrister Babatunde Irukera and commended them for their courage to contest the incoming governorship election.
