The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the November 16 governorship election in Kogi State, Musa Wada, has said that he will govern the state with the fear of God if elected.
Wada who stated this during a campaign rally in Kabba, Kogi West, said that fairness, justice and equity will be his guiding principle, and not religious or tribal sentiments.
He said that each part of the state will be treated equally and fairly in the distribution of appointments and amenities.
He appealed to the people of the state not to despair over the present sorry state of things, saying that their joy and happiness will be restored under his administration.
He said that payment of salary and pensions will become regular under the PDP-led administration as from January, 2020.
He noted that the state is blessed with abundant solid mineral resources, arable land for agriculture and quality human power, adding that all will be harnessed to create prosperity for the people.
To this end, Wada said that he will initiate discussions with foreign and local investors, on how some of the mineral deposits can be explored to create jobs and wealth for the people of the state.
He explained that the present widespread poverty and squalor in communities across the state is an embarrassment to well-meaning indigenes and that he will reverse the situation.
He stated that he will embark on massive infrastructural development across the state and develop the education sector from primary, secondary to tertiary levels, to give the state a better future.
According to him, his administration will also look into the possibility of upgrading the College of Agriculture to a full-fledged university.
He frowned at the deplorable state of Kabba township roads, saying that he will repair them alongside others in major towns in Okunland, if elected.
