“As it is, I’m the most acceptable and the most populous candidate among the Aspirants in Kogi State today and I will stay in the contest for the masses to decide who they want”.

He concluded, ” I called on President Ahmed Bola Asiwaju Tinubu, the amiable president of Federal Republic of Nigeria not to allow this barbaric act to be swept under the carpet which is capable of causing ethnic war that will lead to break down of law and order rather pray that Governor Yahaya Bello’s power drunk is put to check and sanctioned accordingly”.
