Kogi Governorship Election
Mona Mustapha Audu, son of late former Kogi State Governor, Abubakar Audu has thrown his hat into the ring in the upcoming November Kogi State gubernatorial election.
Mr. Audu, who is aspiring to be the next Kogi State governor on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), advised traditional rulers in the state to stay away from politics. He gave the advice on Thursday in Abuja.
He spoke at a news conference where he unveiled his blue print for the state.
According to him, it is the people of the state that can decide who becomes their next governor and not the traditional rulers.
Mr Audu said if the state`s incumbent governor had performed well in office, he would not need to lobby the presidency for its endorsement.
He stressed that his desire was to improve the lot of the people of Kogi.
