My fellow constituent of Kogi Central senatorial district, My name is Alhaji Yakubu Oseni, the All Progressive Congress, APC candidate for Kogi Central Senatorial district.
Quickly, I wish to tender my unreserved apology to the media space for being quiet all this while. You see, a lot has happened this few past months. Allegations have been manufactured against me, I have seen and heard people using defamatory utterances against my person but that is nothing to worry about. Also, defense has been established on my behalf by my media team and well wishers.
On the flag off of my campaign, I urged my supporters and team to engage in the exercise within the tenets of democratic values and persuade others to our camp with sound argument and convincing persuasion, that is, issue based campaign is my political ideology. Electioneering is, Ordinarily, a process made to engage the people in order to sell your ideas to the electorates.
I see no reason why some people unnecessarily choose to overheat the polity by inciting the public against one another and as well as against the authority. The unprecedented use of hate speech witnessed today have consequently metamorphosed into the apprehension of fear by the electorates who now fear that the forthcoming election would be a kind of a violent one which is ordinarily not supposed to be so.
Before now, elections were characterized by violence and clannish upheaval which has made our land be in a perpetual chaos. Youths were killed, houses were razed but all thanks to the New Direction team led by his Excellency Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello for curtailing the crisis and create enabling political environment where the young, the old, female and male can now aspire for any political office without fear of any intimidation. Kudos to his Excellency for this mileage he has achieved in the land.
I implore all the people of Kogi Central to support the New Direction government and mobilize massively to vote for APC from presidency down to state assembly so we can effectively corroborate with the Federal Government to bring the needed change and dividend of democracy to the grassroot.
Thank you and God bless you all.
Long live Kogi Central Federal Constituency.
Long live Kogi state
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Alhaji Yakubu Oseni
APC Senatorial Candidate Kogi Central Federal Constituency, Kogi State.
