A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State and Commissioner, Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon (Engr) Abubakar Ohere, has congratulated Senator Smart Adeyemi on his emergence as the Director General (DG) of APC Governor Yahaya Bello/Edward Onoja Campaign Organisation towards the November 16th governorship election of the state.
Describing the appointment of the two-time senator of the Federal Republic and former National President of the Nigerian Union of Journalist (NUJ) as a catalyst for victory, Ohere said the APC in Kogi had made another ‘Smart’ decision, going into the November 16 guber polls.
Ohere, a party stalwart, made this revelation in a press statement made available to journalists in Lokoja, on Wednesday.
He described Senator Smart’s selection as a “smart move by the administration of Governor Yahaya Bello,” noting that the campaign Director-General “is an excellent architect of the ruling party following his membership.”
He further said Senator Smart, Kogi West Senate hopeful has and will continue showing unalloyed loyalty and commitment to the party, saying he had no doubt the Senator will bring his huge political experience to bear when the campaign formally kick-starts.
The Special Adviser further stressed that he had no doubt in the ability of the DG to lead the party to victory in November 16th 2019 gubernatorial election.
He further described Senator Adeyemi as a worthy political ally, and lauded Governor Yahaya Bello and his running mate, Hon. (Chief) Edward Onoja for the confidence reposed in the Senator, assuring that he will lead APC to the expected landslide victory, as a repetition of the victorious primary election.
The singular act by the Governor, according to Engr. Ohere, was a show that he was conscious of Senator Adeyemi’s determination, intelligence and passion that he has brought to the table as a member of the APC and as a candidate in the last general election.
He solicited for the usual cooperation of APC stalwarts, stakeholders and lovers of the New Direction Administration as “distinguished Senator Smart Adeyemi leads us to victory.”
