A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Smart Adeyemi has joined the November 2023 Kogi governorship race.

Speaking with journalists after obtaining the intent and nomination forms at the APC national secretariat in Abuja on Monday, Senator Adeyemi said he was one of the most prepared and equipped persons to contest for the governorship of Kogi state.

Adeyemi posited that he knows what governance really means having been a one time Kwara state chairman of Nigeria Union of Journalists, Zone D Vice President of NUJ, and two term President of Nigeria Union of Journalists and now a three term Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The former NUJ President said he has transverse through all the states of the federation and travelled to over 30 countries and has been well equipped with the art of governance through sound education, exposure and legislative activities and therefore knows what to do if elected.

Adeyemi said he is eyeing the governorship of Kogi state so as to give voice to the voiceless and rescue the masses from hunger and starvation by creating equal economic opportunities to all irrespective of tribe or religion.

“You can attest to my general acceptability in the state. Crowds of people came from the 21 local government areas of the state to witness this occasion.

“They know I am courageous, not tribalistic nor a religious bigot but the lover of the masses. I have sponsored over 400 Muslims to Mecca and 400 Christians to Jerusalem and influenced employment opportunities for hundreds of people not minding their tribe or political affiliations.

“I have also transversed through all the 21 local government areas of the state and I know the peculiar problems of each district and wards and I also know how to solve those problems.

“By the grace of God, if elected, I will serve my people selflessly with the fear of God and the love of the masses. My philosophy in life is when you serve, you give and you don’t keep anything back  and that’s exactly what I will do if elected,” he said.

As a Senator, Adeyemi is one of the most vocal, fearless and vibrant member in the National Assembly who has contributed the highest motions and bills.

He had risen up to defend the interests of the masses at most difficult times when some feared to speak.
