The candidate of the Unity Party of Nigeria, UPN, for Kabba Bunu House of Assembly election, Oluwaloseyi Babaeko has vowed to unseat the Speaker of the House, Prince Matthew Kolawole in the 2019 Assembly election.
Kolawole is the candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC, contesting for the seat where no incumbent has ever won re-election in the history of the constituency before.
Babaeko spoke on Sunday shortly after the affirmation of his candidacy in Kabba, headquarters of Kabba/Bunu council area.
He said, “The present quagmire, underdevelopment and poverty level in Kabba/Bunu Constituency has reached a breaking point; this is the driving force behind my passion to serve the people of Kabba Bunu constituency better.
“With the Unity Party Of Nigeria, U.P.N, a party that considers the people first with egalitarianism as it’s Ideology, I am more favored to defeat the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly at the poll”.
Babaeko said the Speaker has done nothing meaningful to deserve a re-election, “The voice of the good people of Kabba/Bunu constituency is the voice of God and by the grace of God the victory is sure”.
“Our Ideas and manifesto are issues driven, development focused and programmatically packaged for the benefits of all; UPN will never disappoint the people.”
He eulogized the party leaders for the ample opportunity to fly the ticket of the party, which he said will give him the opportunity to serve his people.
