We Will Deliver 600,000 Votes For Atiku/Okowa In Kogi State” – Adamu Mahmoud Atta Support Group
Ahead of the February 2023 General Elections in Nigeria, a Group in Kogi State known as Adamu Mahmoud Atta Support Group, has promised to deliver six hundred thousand (600,000) Votes for the Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party – PDP, Atiku Abubakar, and his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa. The Director General of the Support Group, Chief Sam Ranti Abenemi, made the declaration in an interview at the Head Office of the Campaign Group in Lokoja.
If equity and fairness are virtues to be promoted to deepen our democracy and promote inclusiveness, it will be natural for an Okun person to be the next Governor of Kogi State.
“Our desire to demand for power shift from the Central to Okunland, Kogi West in 2023 is not born out of a parochialism of selfish motives. Neither is it considered as a right but a genuine demand born out of our divine right to rule and the need for governance in the state to be more inclusive, participatory, fair and just to all Senatorial districts.
“We have heard it mooted at some wrong quarters “the 16-16-16 rule” proposed for the state instead of in”the 8-8-8 rational and logical rule” It is quite inordinate an ambition at this time, to be promoting irregularities, unfairness and injustice in the state. The world is moving towards rationalism – holding that reality itself has inherent logical structure by which we judge fairness and equity.
He urged Political parties to demonstrate the ideals of equity, fairness and justice by zoning the Gubernatorial ticket to Kogi West.
“We must re-emphasize it that we are truly taking an apolotical stance here as we would like to see all parties in the state such as APC, PDP, Labour Party, SDP, ADC etc select their Governorship candidates from Okunland.”
“We not merely admit but insist that, there must be fairness on the part of political leaders, that they must keenly perceive their own duties as well as the right of others; but we also insist that the people can do nothing unless they not merely have, but exercise their full God-given rights.
“The worth of our great experiment in the State is highly dependent upon its being in good faith, an experiment in a true democracy that we seek in the State.
“Surely, this is a noble ideal, an ideal for which it is worthwhile to strive, an ideal for which it is worthwhile to sacrifice much; for our ideal is the rule of all the people in a spirit of friendliest brotherhood toward each and every one of the people of Kogi State. To put an Okun person in Lugard House this year, is a task that must be done.
