Ahead of the forthcoming Governorship polls in Kogi, Mr. Umar Bamaiyi of the All Blending Party (ABP) has said he is not ready to step down for any candidates contesting the election.
He said this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos State on Thursday.
According to him, no moneybag politician will intimidate his governorship ambition.
His words, “I have a passion to fix Kogi, which has been there since I was younger. I am working on how this state can achieve the desired greatness.
“I am propelled by the appalling situation of this state that in spite of its abundance, we are yet to achieve anything; the older generation has failed the state.
“I am aware of some governorship candidates stepping down or the coalition of political parties having a consensus candidate. I won’t step down for anybody, because we don’t have anything in common.
“We are in the injury time before the election, so no stepping down. I am not scared, my desire to fix Kogi was the driving point of my governorship ambition.”
