The Kogi State Coordinator of the Independent Campaign Council (ICC), for the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Dr Sanusi Gamji, on Sunday night congratulated the newly elected All Progressives Congress (APC) 22 House of Assembly candidates of the party for their resounding victory at Saturday’s polls.
Gamji, in a statement he personally signed said the defeat of the candidates of other political parties, ”has again affirmed the general acceptance of our great party, by the great people of Kogi State who just few weeks ago voted massively for our presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
The statement reads: “Kogites have spoken loud and clear with their votes and have overwhelmingly voted for 22 APC candidates out of 25 they believe will continue the trajectory of growth that we have experienced in the last 7 years under the APC.
“It is therefore with great pleasure that I congratulate our great party for a resounding victory. Again, the people of Kogi have decided to stay on the path of infrastructural drive, economic growth and all round development.
“While I congratulate all the 22 APC lawmakers on their well-deserved victory, let me also thank all Kogites for keeping faith with the APC.
“Though it was tough for us all but at the end of the day, a well deserved victory for all members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), a confirmation of the love Kogites have for our great party and the giant strides we have been achieving in the state”, Gamji stressed.
The ICC Coordinator further said the victory would ensure a seamless relationship between the executive and the legislative arms of government.
