The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Prince Abubakar Audu, has said that his mission in the race is to rescue the state from its present state of under-development and woes.
Audu who addressed journalists yesterday on his mission to the United Kingdom, noted that Kogi has retrogressed since he left government 13 years ago, hence the need for all Kogi indigenes both at home and abroad to join hands to save the state from imminent collapse.
According to him, given the antecedents of his party in all the states it has had the opportunity to govern, Kogi State will attain the desired growth and development if the APC is given the chance in the next dispensation.
He said youths’ development, employment generation, wealth creation and massive investment in infrastructural development will be his major focus.
Audu, a one-time governor of the state, regretted that despite the huge allocations accruing to the state, the PDP-led government in the state has failed to make any appreciable mark in physical and human capital development.
On his effort to dislodge the ruling PDP, Audu said “as you can see, I am back refreshed, rejuvenated and fully prepared for the main election after my victory at the primary election of our great party which I won convincingly.”
“I can assure you that our party will carry the day. We have always won previous elections but we were always denied the opportunity. But things will be different this time around with the card.
