The Igbo Community in Kogi State has endorsed the candidacy of the incumbent governor, Captain Idris Wada, for a second term in office.



President General of Ndigbo in 19 northern states, Chief Joseph Enyeama, who disclosed this while receiving the governor at a town hall meeting in Lokoja, the state capital, stated that Kogi State had witnessed peaceful coexistence with other tribes.



Chief Enyeama explained that the Igbo could attest to these because they are beneficiaries of the peaceful atmosphere in the state, noting that peace is very important to sustained development.



“We thank God for you because you are the athlete of this peace which has boosted the moral of Ndigbo to diversify their investment in Kogi State,” he said.



Enyeama pointed that the Igbo have been following the governor’s developmental master plan which he believed would take Kogi to the next level after the governor’s second tenure.



He highlighted some of the challenges faced by members of Igbo community which include the forceful revocation of titles to parcel of land meant to build schools, shortage of pilgrimage slots, non-patronage for government contracts and demand for two slots for post of special assistant in the cabinet, urging the governor to look into all these as a matter of urgency.
