Mona Mustapha Audu, the son of late Prince Abubakar Audu, has announced his intention to run in the November governorship election in Kogi State.
He promised the people of the state that he would sustain the political ideals of his father which focused on infrastructural and human capital development.
Audu, while speaking on Wednesday on his ambition to run for governorship under the All Progressives Congress, stated that poverty and underdevelopment have become a brand in Kogi State for almost four years.
He noted that his father has always been wise in using the resources of the state hence he was able to address poverty and underdevelopment.
He also stated that he will toe the same path as his father.
Recall that some elders in the party had endorsed the aspiration of admiral Jubril against the current governor of the state.
“I am in politics to address the challenges of poverty and underdevelopment.”
“Today, workers are owed several months of salaries; some are committing suicide, children are out of school.”
“There is gross infrastructural decay, there is poverty everywhere. This shouldn’t be because of the abundant human and natural resources available in our state.”
“Some of us have taken up the challenge to get Kogi State working again. We are going to restore the pride of our people.”
“We want to provide qualitative healthcare system, quality education and develop other critical infrastructure for the comfort of our people. That is why we have come; I will build on the legacies of my late father,” he insisted.
