Wada optimistic of PDP’s return in Kogi
Former Governor of Kogi State, Idris Wada, has expressed optimism that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would return to give the citizenry the “right leadership after the courts must have righted the wrong done by INEC” in declaring that the party lost the last governorship election to the All Peoples Congress (APC).
Wada, who spoke yesterday at a stakeholders’ meeting in Lokoja, said he was proud of the party’s performance at the polls where he was its gubernatorial candidate.
“What has happened in the last three months shows clearly that the state needs PDP. What has happened is an accident, and we shall overcome,” he enthused.
Admitting that the party made some costly mistakes while he held sway, the immediate past governor of the state however described the foibles as human frailties, saying only God is infallible.
He identified with PDP lawmakers in the state House of Assembly, who according to him, have become ‘victims of the impunity of the present administration,’ admonishing them to remain steadfast.
“I want to thank elders and leaders of the party who have been with you in your struggle. Only God will reward you,” Wada added.State party chairman, Sam Uhuotu said the PDP would emerge victorious at the tribunal where its candidate is challenging incumbent Governor Yahaya Bello.
