The two former governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Ibrahim Idris and Idris Wada, have reaffirmed their decision to work together in support of the governorship candidate of the party, Senator Dino Melaye, and his running-mate, Hajia Habibat Mohammed Deen.
The two former governors made this known when the Osun State Governor and National Campaign Council Chairman for Kogi Election, Senator Ademola Adeleke, as well as the Contact and Mobilization chairman of the national campaign, Professor Jerry Gana, led some select leaders of the party to the residence of former Governor Idris in Abuja.
Adeleke, who opened discussions at the meeting, told the two former governors that their footprints in Kogi State remain the memories of good governance that people of the State remember.
“I was in Kabba a few days ago, and people were saying that when you were in government, everything moved well for them.
“This could only have happened because PDP members are the real progressives and they are truly with the people, and they work for the people.
“As our leaders, you need to unite and come together to work for all our people and rescue them from their current situation,” Adeleke said.
“By the grace of God, irrespective of what had happened in time past, Imole (the light) has come to Kogi State,” Governor Adeleke assured.
Responding, former Governor Idris described the visit as a “honor” and thanked Governor Adeleke and Professor Gana “for leaving your state to come and support us in Kogi State.
He added that Dino/Habibat project is indeed our project and we are committed to pursuing it to a logical conclusion.
“I love what I am seeing, and with the support we are getting, we will win this election.
Also, former Governor Wada described the meeting as “the momentum that will lead us to victory.”
Senator Tunde Ogbeha described the session as “a welcoming moment. We indeed have a united front, and all our supporters will know that Kogi PDP is one.
“I believe that with the unity we have, we are fully poised to convincingly win our elections by the grace of the almighty.” Senator Ogbeha assured.
Present at the meeting were the running-mate, Hajia Habibat Mohammed Deen, the secretary of the national campaign council, Senator Biodun Olujimi, former Kogi PDP chairman, Engr Sam Ohuotu; former Chief of Staff to the President, Prince Olusola Akanmode and former PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
