Those who will thrive in the next level Nigeria which is emerging under the current leadership are those who can reach beyond the challenges of today to lay hold, with great expectations, on the promises of tomorrow. May you be such a person.
I cannot end this address without thanking the great people of Kogi State for the unprecedented support we received during the 2019 General Elections earlier in the year.
Kogites voted the APC for the Presidency and helped reelect His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari and His Excellency, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for a 2nd term in office. They also voted the APC into 2 out of 3 three Senatorial seats, 7 out of 9 House of Representatives seats and a historic 25 out of 25 Kogi State House of Assembly seats.
We are grateful.
