The Executive Chairman of Bassa Local Government Area of Kogi State, Alhaji Mohammed Muktar Shuaibu, has assured that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will win all the elective positions in the 2023 General Elections in the council area.
Shuaibu made the remark while speaking with newsmen shortly after meeting with the party’s stakeholders in Oguma.
The LG boss said that the stability of APC remained sacrosanct in the local government area.
“Although there were some challenges that threatened the corporate existence of the party in the past, but that one is normal in politics.
“Such divisive path will not be towed in the future existence of the party, because the leaders have put their heads together and brought the party to order.
“With the recent reconciliation drive in the party which led to coming together of the party leaders, Bassa is focusing to promote lives of citizens in the area,” Shuaibu said.
He said that the APC-led administration was giving attention to improving lives of communities through the provision of basic amenities such as water, electricity, access roads, healthcare and basic education, among others.
“The APC- led administration under Gov. Yahaya Bello has curbed thuggery as youth in the state were now engaged in positive ventures to improve their livelihoods.
“The APC is now strongly mobilised to ensure that all candidates seeking various elective positions from the president to House of Assembly are voted for and sworn into office,” Shuaibu added.
The LG boss urged people of the area especially members of the APC to remain law abiding, embrace peace and high standards of discipline.
He promised that Bassa would deliver the highest number of votes for the presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima.
He thanked all the stakeholders for remaining steadfast to the the progress of the party, urging them to sustain their support towards ensuring the success of the party in the local government area.
