The governorship candidate of the Accord Party, AP, Admiral Jibrin Usman, has gained another boost ahead of the November governorship election as the Ujeju Udama Igala group endorses his governorship ambition today in Abuja.
According to a report, the Ujeju Udama Igala today endorsed Admiral Jibrin Usman Oyibe of the Accord Party as the consensus candidate for the November 11th gubernatorial election in Kogi State.
The association, which has over 80 affiliate bodies worldwide, endorsed Mr. Jibrin Usman Oyibe because of his numerous achievements in public office, especially in human capital development.
The association, a registered sociocultural organization of Igala and Bassa extraction, set up a committee termed the “strategic planning committee” with a view to coming up with consensus candidates from Igala and Bassa extraction.
In her wisdom, the strategic committee considers the following qualities for their informed decision:
1. Civil and public service experience
2. Capacity to withstand the threat posed by the current government of Kogi State
3. The compelling need of the Igala race to present a candidate of national figure and acceptance
According to the noble association, the present reality of our dear state and the recent unprovoked and unchallenged attacks by the state government on the convoy of a candidate from Igala Kingdom have made it necessary for them to have a rethink and throw their support behind the candidacy of Admiral Jibrin Usman Oyibe.
Admiral Jibrin Usman, while acknowledging the endorsement, tasked the group with embarking on aggressive political evangelism to promote his brand as he bids to rescue the state from bastardized rulership.
