According to him:“Just this morning again, about seven of my members were picked from my community. I don’t breed thugs because I don’t condone criminality.
From all pointers on ground and with all the laudable achievements of the current administration, which the people of Kogi State had attested to, victory was sure for the APC.
Those who already knew they would lose were the ones stoking violence and levelling baseless allegations.
It’s this premise that we are calling on the security agencies to be fair to all and ensure the security of lives and property before, during and after the governorship election, ” he said.
The candidate, however commended the security agencies for the good work they had been doing in the state, reassuring that he would always be available to honour their invitations for clarifications about the activities of the party and any of the campaign chieftains.
