More and more support is coming the way of Dr. Victor Alewo Adoji, the erudite banker-turned politician who is gearing up to represent Kogi East Senatorial District in the upper legislative chamber of the National Assembly under the platform of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in 2019.

This time, Kogi Liberation Movement (ILM), Kogi East chapter, a political pressure group, has thrown its full weight behind the ADC candidate, Dr. Adoji.
The group led by its coordinator, Comrade Misah Ibrahim, made the declaration in a statement issued at the end of a town hall meeting held by it in Olamaboro, Kogi State.
Ibrahim said that considering what Adoji has done for the district in his personal capacity, it would be foolhardy for them to fold their arms while another person grabs the post.
“It is difficult to forget the many good things Dr. Adoji did for our people even in his personal capacity.
“This is a man who took the responsibility of paying monthly allowances to primary school teachers equivalent to their salaries to motivate them into giving their best to the students.
“He built the only standard mosque and churches in Olamaboro. He has also built schools and given scholarships to youths who want to further their education as well paid the WAEC fees of those in their senior year in secondary schools. Adoji, has touched several lives either directly or indirectly. We are yet to see his match in the district,” Ibrahim said.
Lamenting on the poor representation of the district, the leader of the group said: “Kogi East Senatorial District has suffered misrepresentation for years. Those who have represented this district have serially failed us in terms of good legislation, provision of amenities through constituency projects and empowerment.
“We can’t continue to wallow in this politics of stagnation where some selfish individuals will gather together to oppose everything that is good for our land.
“Our region has suffered so much neglect because of the attitude of some of our leaders, despite the fact that we have several opportunities to develop.”
Comrade Ibrahim further disclosed that they were not in the know of any candidate developing interest in the position at the moment aside from the former banker.
“Adoji is the only person seeking for the office who has ever told us why he is going there. The reasons are quite important to us and we shall put him there. We shall hold him accountable thereafter. He is not just an aspirant but a philanthropist with good heart to lead.
“To me, he is the most suitable man to represent us at the senate next year,” he declared.
The group further urged all stakeholders to support Adoji’s victory at the poll to enable him bring emancipation to the people of Kogi East.

Going by the support coming in from every corner of the district, Dr. Adoji seems to be having a smooth sail to the senate

Politics Of Bitterness and PDP’s Deadly Plots Against Me, APC MUST Stop Nown – Chief Nelson Agbamuche

Published

on

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and its operatives in Akwukwu-Igbo in Delta State, led by Kelvin Onuwa Anyakwu and Victor Nzediegwu have been doing everything possible to harm me, my family and political associates.

 

There have been series of attacks on my properties and plots to eliminate me, leading to some unfortunate attacks on my supporters.

 

The reason for the acrimony is due to the fact that I choose to identify with a progressive party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) which has brought and still bringing development to my community.

 

As a traditional title holder whose allegiance is to my people, I thought it wise to join the APC having spent years in the PDP without any noticeable benefit to my people, but my former party chieftains won’t recognise my fundamental human rights of freedom o association guaranteed in our constitution and the African charter.

 

Consequently, they have resorted to attacks and threats to my life, destruction of my properties using thugs and local vigilantes to hound me and my associates.

 

I have already petitioned the Inspector General of Police on this matter, having lodged formal complaints at the state level with no visible action taken.

 

As if that was not enough, they also resorted to political intolerance against myself and members of the All Progressives Congress.

 

This was brought to bare on Saturday when the PDP unleashed an unprecedented level of violence against APC faithfuls during the Local Government elections that our party was clearly winning.

 

After noticing that APC had won most of the units in the election, thugs led by Ikechukwu Joseph Iwegbu, known as Presidential General, invaded the units fully armed at the point of counting to disrupt the exercise. They carted away all the ballot boxes and shot at us recklessly, many of our people sustained various degree of injuries.

The Police in our community witnessed the incidents, they can attest to the brazen attacks.

No result was announced anywhere in Akwukwu-Igbo ward. Of course APC clearly won five out of the seven polling units in the ward. If they are in doubt, let us repeat the election, APC will still win.

 

After the violent attack on Saturday, they used the instruments of the state to move against us, arresting our people who are APC members. This is one oppression taken too far.

They kept saying they don’t want APC, that Delta state is a PDP state yet all the development we have today in Akwukwu Igbo were brought by the APC government.

 

New transformers came about 6 months ago, Rural electrification is near completion, soon to be commissioned.

 

Renovation of our primary schools with perimeter fencing. We have the Agbogidi primary school, Atuma Primary school etc.

 

 

Road projects are equally ongoing.

 

Akwukwu-Illa road project alone is about 4km, you also have Engr. Sunday Gbamdi road and others.

 

Why are we not going to join a party that has brought development to our communities?

 

Since we joined APC, they have been Using hoodlums and local vigilantes to unleash terror on us. We have reported to different authorities, yet the thugs are becoming more brazen. They boast openly that no one can arrest them because they are backed by powers from above.

 

Since they have openly sworn to use everything to fight APC out of the state and we, on our part, are equally resolute in our journey to bring development to our people through the APC led Federal Government, I use this medium to call on all security agencies and well meaning Nigerians to take urgent steps with a view to safeguarding my life and properties in Akwukwu-Igbo and the state in general, as well as calling all the aforementioned individuals and their enablers to order.
