The candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC for November 21 governorship election in Kogi state, Prince Abubakar Audu has said he would resuscitate all the ailing industries in the state, if given the mandate to rule.
Prince Audu said this at Dekina, the headquarters of Dekina local government at the weekend while receiving decampees to the party.
The decampees led by a youth leader and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the council, Comrade Amade Edime said he and over 5,000 PDP members decided to join APC in the state because of lack of vision by the present administration led by Captain Idris Wada.
The youth leader who claimed to be a co-founder of PDP, not a joiner said that he joined the party since 16 years ago, adding that the party’s policy has not positively affected the people of the state since it took over the administration of the state in 2003.
In his remarks, the leader of the party in the council, Alhaji Jibrin Isah, Echocho, the former CEO of Afri Bank and ex- PDP chieftain that recently decamped to the party said the time had come for them to identify with the reality on ground, imploring his supporters to vote for the party and shun the much acclaimed “Dekina Agenda” that (according to him) “stands for failures and exploiters” in the society.
He advised his supporters to come out in their numbers and vote for the APC flag bearer, Prince Audu for the enthronement of good governance that will manifest in form of creation of employment, wealth and income in the society.
The decamping ceremony which took place at the Islamiya primary and secondary school in Dekina, during the party campaign rally to the local government saw large turnout of party leaders and supporters.
Receiving the defectors, Prince Audu, commended them for their timely decision in joining the APC, particularly at a time when people are clamouring for a change in the state.
He assured them of equal treatment with older members of the party.
