I am Still Contesting Kogi Guber Election Under APC – Admiral Usman Jibrin rtd
The gubernatorial aspirant of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Admiral Usman Jibrin rtd. Has said he is still in the race for the governorship of the state on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC).
Jibrin’s position was as a result of the fake news peddling around by purveyors of anti- Kogi Rescue Mission, that he will be contesting for Kogi 2019 governorship election on the platform of African Democratic Party (ADC), In their cheap ploy to mislead and misinform members of the general public, including our teeming party supporters, certain dubious elements have been perpetrating the ludicrous falsehood that is unfounded.
The APC governorship aspirant position was made known by Admiral Usman Jibrin New Media Centre (AUJNMC) to journalists in Lokoja, yesterday that, the report is a “cheap ploy to mislead and misinform the public”.
According to the statement “the Admiral Usman Jibrin New Media Centre has been inundated with calls and messages emanating from various individuals and organisations to the effect that news is on-going at various fora alluding that Admiral Usman Jibrin will be vying for Kogi 2019 Gubernatorial election on the platform of African Democratic Congress (ADC), this malicious rumour is believed to be issued and circulated by desperate political merchants working for Kogi state government with no interest in true restoration of Kogi; and who are willing to do anything to stop Usman Jibrin not to contest. It is now obvious that these unprincipled personalities will not stop at any level no matter how ignoble to satisfy their selfish ends”.
Usman Jibrin always stated that “we are members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Kogi’s problem is not with the party APC but with an individual and because it is with an individual, our aim is to remove that individual”.
“Admiral Usman Jibrin rtd. Is a respectable and principled person with undoubted integrity whose political agenda is not for personal gain but for the good of his beloved Kogi State. He will not, therefore, stoop so low as to sell the hope of Kogi’s rescue mission for any sort of morsel. Usman Jibrin has no intention of backstabbing his supporters by turning to any other party for personal gain. We, therefore, find the evil rumours deeply offensive and misleading.
“The Jibrin Centre wishes to reiterate for the umpteenth time that Usman Jibrin will not jettison All Progressives Congress (APC) for any aspirant neither has he gone to the African Democratic Congress (ADC) as their party flag bearer for the 2019 Kogi Gubernatorial election.”
“The Jibrin Centre wishes to inform the general public that our principal, Admiral Usman Jibrin rtd. Will certainly be on the ballot as APC candidate for the governorship election which comes up on November 16th, 2019.
We urge our supporters and the general public to disregard such rumour and the rumour-mongers. We challenge the purveyors of this fake news to be bold by coming into the open for Kogites to take them seriously. APC, our party remains the only political party that can offer Kogi stable, credible social, economic and political development.
