Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has urged electorate in Kogi to vote en masse for Alhaji Abubakar Audu in the governorship election holding in the State on Nov. 21.
Osinbajo, who made the appeal in Okene on Tuesday during a rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said Audu had what it takes to take the state to the next level.
The vice president said the governorship candidate’s vast experience and connections within and outside the country puts him far ahead of other candidates, saying that Audu remained the man to beat.
He said the present administration was determined to take the country to the next level, in spite of the numerous challenges, urging the people to key in.
The vice president, who had visited Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Alhaji Ado Ibrahim commended the people of Kogi for voting President Muhammadu Buhari and other APC candidates during the last general elections and urged them to repeat the same on Nov. 21.
“A vote for APC is a vote for positive development“, Osinbajo said, and advised the electorate not to commit political suicide by voting PDP.
The governor of Niger State, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello and his Edo State counterpart, Adams Oshiomhole, called on the people to embrace change and rapid progress by voting Audu in the coming governorship election.
Present at the rally were the National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Oyegun among other dignitaries.
