Mr. Usman Jibril, former Chief of Naval Staff has purchased the All Progressives Congress (APC) form for the Kogi state November 16 governorship election and has vowed to unseat the incumbent Governor, Yahaya Bello.
He also disclosed that he is on a rescue mission to cleanse the state from maladministration.
The former army chief made this known when he went to the party National Secretariat in Abuja, the Nigeria capital city to buy a nomination form.
The poverty state under the current government cannot be allowed to continue; Jibrin said and vows to defeat Bello at the party primaries.
Jibrin said poverty in the state as a result of nonpayment of salaries has forced the state Permanent Secretary to ride Okada to work daily.
“Kogi state at the moment needs a governor with vision who has the experience and is in tune with the reality of the moment and redesign the structure of tomorrow,” he said
