Obangede, the headquarters of Okehi Local Government Area came alive today when the campaign train of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Senatorial candidate, Alhaji Yakubu Oseni stormed the area with his team.
Alhaji Yakubu Oseni has since last week engaged in door-to-door campaign and consultations towards realisation of his bid to represent Kogi Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly come 2019.
Also visited amidst endorsement were HRH Salami Raji, Okara of Ogu in Isuwe, HRH Suleiman O Umar, Ezu of Egiri clan, HRH Ajayi Suberu, Omakozi Epoto, Mall Salawudeen, former acting Secretary of Okehi LGA, APC stalwarts in Okaito and HRH Adamawu of Uboro in Okaito.
Others were HRH Shehu Umar, Ohi of Eika, HRH Aliyu Atimati of Obangede, HRH Yakubu Okatahi, Taru of Ohuodo, HRH Ogazi of Anchi, Obangede, HRH Ohi Obanyi of Iyewe, HRH Yusuf Adoke of Eika Ohizeni and others.
Alhaji Yakubu Oseni who revealed he has started taking note of some infrastructural decay which need urgent attention when voted, said his reign as the Senator representing Kogi Central will usher in a new lease of life which the previous Abuja-based leaders could not provide.
“I grew up at home and I am aware of the yearnings, needs and aspirations of my people. I will not be far from you when I become your representative at the National Assembly. Therefore, don’t give way to diaspora politicians”, he admonished.
In all the places visited, the jubilant crowd who have been patiently waiting for AYO and his team were awestruck with his simplicity and compassion for the downtrodden which according to them are qualities of leader needed to salvage Kogi Central Senatorial District.
The excited traditional rulers, APC stalwarts and ward leaders pledged their unalloyed support, noting that AYO has quintessential leadership qualities for speedy grassroots development when given the mandate.
