Former president of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), Alhaji Sani Lulu, has announced that he will be contesting for the Kogi State governorship election under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking to newsmen, the ex-NFF chief stated that the administration of Governor Yahaya Bello has performed poorly.
Sani Lulu promised to deliver if given the opportunity to serve the people of the state.
He said: “Going to the next level requires that every Nigerian should come together, and for us in Kogi State, we want to do things differently. I’m so committed to this project, and I pray that together we’ll take Kogi to the next level.
“My slogan is Mr Peace Development, and that’s because I’ve always delivered in all that I did. I have my vision and mission, and I know I will deliver if given the opportunity.
“All of us are saying the government of the day in Kogi State has failed, that means when someone is coming in, he has to be prepared and do things differently.”
The former football administrator noted that President Muhammadu Buhari has set an example which his administration promised to follow.
”It’s not government money that’s important, but one could also create room for private sector participation. I’m doing most of the things I do unconsciously. They said I’ve given scholarships, I’ve built schools, and did a lot for people.
“APC is trying to balance the situation to say if they had challenges, let’s try to make amends. Most of us are coming to contest because there’s room to contest. President Buhari has set an example for us all to follow, and that’s what we’ll do,” he added.
