Captain Idris Wada- A Candidate to beat in 2011 Guber polls

Captain Idris Wada, the winner of the fresh primaries election conducted by the ruling Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] in Kogi State has declared that he is the authentic candidate of the party for the forthcoming governorship election slated for December 3, 2011.

Wada made the clarification while addressing his supporters in Lokoja, against the backdrop of speculations in the state that President Goodluck Jonathan had ordered that the ticket of the party should be given to Alhaji Isah Jibril Echocho, the earlier winner of the primaries election held in January before the Court of Appeal extended the tenure of the outgoing governor by one year.

This is as he named Mr. Yomi Awoniyi, the son of Late Chief Sunday Awoniyi former National Chairman of the Arewa Consultative Forum [ACF] as his running mate for the governorship election.

According to Wada, "by the grace of Almighty God I am bold to say that I have been cleared alongside my running mate, Mr. Yomi Awoniyi by the national secretariat of our great party PDP to contest the forthcoming governorship election as the flag bearer of the party for the election".

He then urged his supporters and well-wishers to disregard any reports in the media that he is no longer the flag bearer of the party for the forthcoming governorship election, saying that those pending the rumour want to cause disunity and crisis within the party.

Wada then promised that if given the mandate to be the next governor of the state he would build on the solid foundation already laid down by the out-going governor by keying into the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan in ensuring rapid socio-economic development of the state.

Similarly, he explained that his administration would focus on the development of the educational, health, tourism and youth/women empowerment sectors, adding that a conductive environment would be created by his administration in order to attract investors to the state which would go along way in assisting the state government address the increasing rate of unemployment among the teeming youths.
