The aspirant, Kogi East Senatorial District on the platform of the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA), Comrade Amade Godwin Edime deems it imperative to keep the general public and particularly, the teaming supporters of our great party, abreast with the state of affairs of the party in Kogi East and other general pressing issues, amidst varied insinuations in the current Nigeria’s political sphere.

Comrade Edime likes to use this medium to correct misconceptions in some quarters that APDA was one of the political parties that recently formed a merger; the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP). He says, for the purpose of clarity, APDA was never part of the merger.

Meanwhile, Edime, a former Vice President, National Affairs, National Association of Nigerian Students, (NANS), expresses his commendation to the current eighth National Assembly for passing the bill on the financial autonomy of the State Houses of Assembly and that of the Judiciary. He, in the like manner extends his commendation to President Muhammadu Buhari for giving assent to the said Bill.

Moreover, he promises that if given the chance to represent the great people of Kogi East, he will pursue the Bill that will eventually grant the local governments autonomy which has, up to this present moment, been handled with levity.

The Onu-Ogwu Atta insists that the current attention given to the issue of local government autonomy is not good enough, knowing that the bulk of the Nigerian population is located within the local areas and that every single Nigerian resides within the confines of a local government, adding that speedy human and capital development will unarguably be fostered if the local councils are eventually granted financial autonomy.

The Civil Society Activist cum Social Crusader however frowns at the spate of killings that have gone on unabated in States of Benue, Taraba, Plateau, Sokoto, Borno, Yobe, Zamfara and the others, urging the Federal government to heighten its priority on the security of lives and property.

He vows to resolutely ensure that the Igala/Bassa ethnic nationalities take their rightful place among the comity of ethnic nationalities in Nigeria. He laments that the Igala nation, despite her massive population and landmass, cannot boast of her own State in this country. That, he says, is an aberration that should be corrected. He however vows to be duty-bound to confront the anomaly headlong if given the mandate as Senator from Kogi East.

He also vows to vehemently push the myriad of predicaments bedeviling our people to the national frontier where the district has hitherto been deficient of passionate men to do so.”

Comrade Edime therefore assures that Kogi East will be in for an effective and efficient representation and that he will muscle up his last ounce of strength humanly needed to exhume our people from the dungeon of poverty, insecurity, disease, unemployment and general backwardness.
