Warning of dire consequences should the Governor Idris Wada administration be returned to power in the November 21 governorship election in the state, the group said Kogi is now in a coma.
Addressing a press conference in Abuja yesterday, its President, Comrade Odaudu Joel Minister said after a careful surgical analysis of the problems in the state, it has resolved to restate its support for the aspiration of a former governor of the state, Prince Abubakar Audu.
“Kogi State has been struck by an ebola disease…the ebola endemic afflicting Kogi is socio-economic and political. The rate of infrastructure decay is alarming while the degree of economic morbidity is gargantuan”, he said.
According to Minister, since the exit of Mr. Audu from the Government House in 2003, there has been no tangible project undertaken by successive administrations.
While lamenting those township roads in the state capital, Lokoja, are now a festival of potholes, the group added that several other roads across the three senatorial districts present a carnival of gaping potholes.
“Hospitals within and outside the state capital have turned to mere consulting clinics. Local government workers have turned to 20 per cent salary earners. The elegant Kogi State University established by Prince Abubakar Audu now looks faded and untidy. Our primary, secondary and tertiary institutions are being afflicted with incessant strikes due to the nonchalant posture of the incumbent governor.
