As the Kogi State governorship election draws closer, national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Dr Umar Ganduje, has assured that the party is working on modalities to retain the state.
Ganduje, who is in Sokoto to commission some projects as part of Governor Ahmed Aliyu’s celebration of 100 days in office, told newsmen that the party was doing everything humanly possible to retain the state.
“You are aware that Kogi is part of the progressives and we have been winning the state before now, so winning the state will not in any way be difficult for us.
“The governor is in charge in the state and I know with him and his achievements in office so far, we are sure of an easy ride back to Lugard House,” he said.
On the achievements recorded by the Governor Ahmed Aliyu, the chairman described them as unprecedented.
He said; “I came and saw series of achievements recorded by Governor Ahmed Aliyu, and I am fully impressed with what I saw so far.
“The governor is a young man who is ready for the job. I can see that immediately after he was declared the governor-elect, he started to make plans for what he intended to do when he assumes office.
“The results of his plan are what we are seeing now. When I came here, I witnessed the distribution of palliatives to victims of flood.
“I also commissioned a newly constructed road, which was part of his achievement within 100 days. These are apart from numerous road projects still expected to be commissioned soon,” he stated.
