The Director General National Space Research and Development Agency ( NASRDA ), Professor Seidu Mohammed Ogah has appealed to the people of Kogi state particularly those in Igala and Bassa speaking zone to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in the February 16 presidential election for sustainable democracy dividends.
He urged the Igala /Bassa people to reciprocate the gestures of APC led government, which appointed their sons and daughters to high positions of responsibilities by coming out en mass to reelect President Muhammadu Buhari, candidate of APC in the forthcoming general elections.
Ogah made the appeal at Anyigba , Dekina LGA of the state during the road walk for President Buhari and Osinbajo organised by the Igala / Bassa alliance for Buhari /Osinbajo Continuity yesterday.
He challenged the Igala / Bassa people to take their destinies in their hands by refusing propaganda by the opposition parties to remain with the presidential candidate of the APC.
While restating the commitment of Igala /Bassa people to the reelection bid of the president, the Director General of Igala-Bassa Alliance, for Buhari continuity, Goodman Akwu said the carnival is to market the APC candidate to the people of Kogi East.
Akwu advised the people not to believe the insinuations that the Igala nation has been abandoned by the All Progressive Congress(APC) saying the zone has never have it so good.
Akwu, a chieftain of All Progressive Congress (APC) and former governorship candidate of All progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) said rather than blaming President Buhari for the woes of the zone ,the people should blame their children in position of responsibilities who cannot attract development to the zone.
