Kogi LG election: Adeyemi blow hot, says he will not endorse any aspirant



Ahead of Kogi State Local Government Elections later this year, Senator Smart Adeyemi has rebuked some aspirants from Kogi West Senatorial district who are disguising that he has endorsed them to be Chairmen and Councilors.

In a statement he issued and made available to journalists, the lawmaker frowned at the endorsement claim, saying that he has no person in mind.

According to him, he wasn’t a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at a time, party structures emerged, hence, he won’t adopt anyone other than those preferred by the party leadership.

His statement reads:

“Furthermore, as our great state prepares for the local government elections, I put it on record that I have not and will not adopt any candidate.

“We all belong to one party under one leadership; therefore, I will embrace whoever emerges either as chairman or councillor, as the party leadership will determine.

“Let me stress that I was not personally present at the material time Kogi State APC party structures were put in place under the leadership of Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello, yet my interest and that of my people have always been protected.

“Therefore I am confident that the leadership of my party under Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello is strong and sufficiently formidable to produce, at the appropriate time, people who are qualified, experienced, dedicated, honest, strong and aligned with the excellent work already being done by the governor.

“I will not entertain any further acts of mischief, political sabotage or outright anti-party conducts. This is an appeal to all coordinators, my genuine supporters and well wishers of DSSA to hereby strongly adhere to my position herein stated unequivocally.”.

To his opponents, he wrote: “I send strong caution to those who consider themselves opponents to desist from any form of mischief and misrepresentation of my person. I must be left out of their fictional delusions of grandeur”.

Finally, to his supporters, he declared, “Let me state emphatically that my support for Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello is unconditional and non-negotiable. I therefore implore you to rally round him and vehemently eschew any acts of distraction, mischief, confusion and what I consider (as) sabotage.

“I am a man of faith. A covenant child of God. My future in all ramifications is in the hands of the Almighty God through His human Angels”, he concluded.
