Convinced by the stellar role he played towards strengthening of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Idah Local Government Area in recent elections, Dr. Abutallib Major has been described as a pathfinder in present Kogi politics.
The Kogi State coordinator of Arewa Youth Solidarity Forum, Comrade Friday Okwoli, who made this known in a chat with The Graphic, said Dr. Major who is the LG chairman, deserves commendation for his uprightness, pointing out that it is rare to see a man in his position standing up for what he believes in.
Comrade Okwoli, who said that the chairman was able to take the lead among Chairmen that recently defected to the APC, added that recent victories enjoyed by the party are attributable to the doggedness and determination of Hon Major.
While describing Hon Major as a man of principle, he praised him for his stance on his belief, adding that even in the face of intimidation, he remained resolute.
He said the Chairman’s foresight, paved the way for other council chairmen in the state to join the ruling party, saying that his bravery was rare in politics.
The coordinator speaks: “There is no doubt about the bravery of Hon Abutallib Major because of his refined method of politicking. He is always standing on the path of truth, a rare attribute in a politician.
“The Chairman also opened the way for Chairmen of other Local Government Areas to take the bold step in joining the ruling, APC. That singular action demonstrates why we, in this forum, see him as a pathfinder,” he stressed.
He therefore enjoined the people of Idah Local Government Area, to remain steadfast and give their unalloyed support to the present administration in its effort to move the area forward; assuring that the APC is here to stay.
