The Kogi State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Kingsley Fanwo has congratulated the Chairman-elect of Mopamuro Local Government Area, Moses Sunday David Alumo, the Vice Chairman-elect, Mercy Bukola Obajemu and all Councillors- elect.
The Commissioner in a statement, Sunday said the historic victory is “not just a mandate but a responsibility to serve the people of Mopamuro”
“As we celebrate the unequivocal statement of our people to choose our party, it is a massive responsibility on the shoulders of our Chairman-elect and all the elected legislators to rise to the occasion by delivering democracy dividends to our people. We must prove we can manage this huge success that comes with stupendous responsibility.
“Every woman, every youth, every farmer, every artisan that voted in the election expects our party to spark radical development at the grassroots and ensure security. We cannot afford to fail them.
“The reason Hon. Alumo won the primary election and the general election was because of his track record, political pedigree and his closeness to our people at the grassroots. He has proven beyond doubt that he will continue to do well”.
Fanwo thanked the party elders who “lightened up the path of the party to this victory, especially Rt. Hon. Clarence Olafemi and Hon. Eric Fiki and many others too numerous to mention”, saying the party foot soldiers campaigned hard to achieve the victory of Saturday December 12.
“Our Elders remained our strength. Rt. Hon. Clarence Olafemi and Hon. Eric Fiki among many others gave us the guide to this victory. We thank them for their selfless service to our party and the people of Mopamuro.
“It was a resounding victory that the opposition PDP couldn’t even fault. But we thank PDP for enriching the contest with their participation. We thank God that the election was largely peaceful”.
The Commissioner urged the party leaders in the Local Government to continue to woo new members into the party as APC hopes to retain power at all level in 2023.
He also thanked the Kogi State Governor, Alh. Yahaya Bello, for transforming APC into an “unbeatable party” in the State, saying the Governor is a blessing to the All Progressives Congress nationally.
