The governorship candidate of the All Blending Party in Kogi State, Umar Bamaiyi, has stated that he has no plan to step down for any candidates contesting in the November governorship election in the state.
The ABP governorship candidate stated this is a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos State on Thursday.
In his statement, he claimed that he will not be intimidated by moneybag politicians to jettison his governorship ambition or support the PDP candidate as reported by some sections of the media.
Bamaiyi stated his mandate was to fix the state, as such reports of his adoption of a consensus candidate were untrue.
According to him, there is no plan for him to step down for any candidate, he advised that such a report should be disregarded.
“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,” Bamaiyi stressed.
