Ahead of kogi Election Igala Youth leader picks APGA nomination form

Umar Goodman an Igala Youth leader, on Friday indicated interest to contest the governorship poll in Kogi by picking All Progressives Grant Alliance (APGA) nomination form.

Goodman is the only aspirant who had picked the party’s nomination form to contest the election.

The party primary to pick the candidate who would fly APGA’s flag in the Nov. 28 governorship poll, had been slated for Saturday, Sept. 12.

Speaking after picking the nomination form at the party secretariat in Abuja , Goodman pledged to move the state forward if he wins the election.

The aspirant noted that the people of Kogi had suffered for long and needed a vibrant governor to turn around the fortunes of the state.

Goodman said: ``Kogi is as rotten as rotten egg due to bad leadership in the past.’’
``I am the change Kogi is looking for; we are ready to give Kogi three major things.

``Number one is development, two is development and three is development because past leaders have bluntly refused to develop the state.

`` I promise to be transparent as a white piece of paper. No more dictatorship for the people of Kogi, no more sitting on the floor to speak with your governor once I am voted into power.’’
