SEE What Kogi Group Begs President Buhari For... THIS WILL SHOCK YOU

Top 7 Controversies Involving Former Governor AmaechiA Kogi central senatorial district group has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to reconsider James Ocholi, a ministerial nominee from the state.

According to The Cable, the group urged Buhari not to overlook its loyalty to him alleging that Kogi central had suffered marginalization for a long time.

The group in an open letter signed by R. Abdulmaleeq said: “While it is within your constitutional powers to choose and nominate any candidate of your choice from any part of a state, it is pertinent for the sake of EQUITY, FAIRNESS, and the fragile power equation in Kogi state, to reconsider your nomination from Kogi state.”

The Kogi central senatorial district group also noted that the state governor is from Kogi east and his deputy from Kogi west. The group judging further from the candidates for the forthcoming elections in PDP and APC, said it is obvious that the same Kogi east will certainly produce the next governor, while the deputy will come from the Kogi west, leaving Kogi central with nothing.

The letter reads:“Sir, the scenario in Kogi state is not different from that of Niger state which you recently corrected by withdrawing an earlier nomination.

“It is on record that the Ebiras of Kogi central have always voted for you since you started your political sojourn in 2003, and they remained consistent and voted en mass for you and APC in the March 28 election.

“You have demonstrated that you reward loyalty sir, this is the time to reward the great people of Kogi central for being loyal to you all through your political struggles sir, even while suffering persecution from the state government.”

Meanwhile indications are rife that APC in Kogi state may produce two candidates for the upcoming November 21 governorship election in the state.

This is because the appeal panel set up by the national leadership of the party to review the primary election in the state, has called for the disqualification of the winner of the election, Prince Abubakar Audu, who is also the former governor of the state.
