Kogi election: Accord affirms ex-Chief of Naval Staff Jibrin as guber candidate

Ahead of November 11, 2023 governorship election in Kogi State, Accord Party has affirmed Usman Oyibe Jibrin, a former Chief of Naval Staff, as the substantive candidate of the party.

Unveiling the candidate after the delegates’ affirmation in Lokoja on Tuesday, the national chairman of the party Alhaji Mohammed Nalado described Usman Jibrin as a viable and valuable candidate who possesses the charisma, capacity, experience and popularity to dislodge the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in the November 2023 governorship election.

According to him: “The process that produced the candidate was very transparent as the placeholder of the party Ahmed Ibrahim voluntarily withdrew for Usman Jubrin to emerge through affirmation by delegates of the party from the 21 local government areas of Kogi State.”

He assured that the candidate being a former naval chief of staff would be able to deliver the desired dividends of democracy to the people.

Nalado solicited the support of the party members and the people of Kogi State to win the forthcoming governorship in order to salvage the current situation in the state where percentage payment of salary has become the order of the day.

In his remark, the legal adviser of the party who is also the chairman of the electoral committee, Barrister Maxwell Mgbudem, commended the leadership of the party for the seamless conduct of the exercise that led to the unveiling of the candidate of the Accord Party for Kogi State governorship election.

Delivering his acceptance speech Usman Jibrin said he accepted the ticket of the party to contest the forthcoming election and win to enable him to rescue the state from the hands of leaders who have plunged the state into a precarious situation.

“Accord Party has taken a position in Kogi politics and I am happy to be the candidate of the party. I thank Ahmed Ibrahim who withdrew for me to emerge and I am assuring our teeming supporters that the party will not disappoint them if given the mandate come November 2023,” he said.

While speaking on percentage payment of salary at the local government level, the candidate assured that under his watch as the governor of the state, all civil servants both at the local and state government level would take their full salaries as and when due.

He promised that workers that were unjustly sacked by the current government will be reinstated.
