The candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the November 16 governorship in Kogi state , Engr. Musa Wada has said governor Yahaya Bello has done nothing to deserve a re-election.
Wada who spoke in Lagos when he addressed newsmen said the abysmal performance of Bello has brightened his chances of emerging victorious in next month’s election. Wada while decrying the poor state of infrastructures in the state under Bello said he will unveil his plans for the state to the people when the campaign starts.
“The abysmal performance of the governor is enough reason for me to confidently say that I have all it takes to win the election. All things being equal, my chances are far brighter than the incumbent based on his very poor performance in the governance of Kogi State”.
“When you go to Kogi state today and sample the opinions of people, everybody is fed up. Ordinary payment of salaries, which is the right of every worker, be it in private or public sector has become an illusion. When somebody cannot pay ordinary salary, then you can imagine the level of infrastructural decay from the health sector to educational institutions, to maintenance of basic infrastructure like roads”.
“If as a governor of a state, you can’t achieve those basic things, I wonder what you will campaign with for the people to reelect you for another term. As far as I am concerned, I have every reason to feel that I have very bright chances of getting to Lugard Government House”.
“Severally, I have told people that if you performed well as a governor, you have campaigned for yourself indirectly, because what you have done will speak for you. But this present governor has nothing on ground to tell the people of Kogi that he has achieved in the last four years”.
“So, we are waiting when the campaign starts what he will tell the people that he has done that will facilitate his re-election in a state where hunger has become the hunger of the day” he said.
