With three weeks to the Governorship election in Kogi State, Candidate of the Action Alliance AA, Otunba Olayinka Braimoh says he is Contesting the number one seat to rescue the State from poverty, saying he is not stepping down for anyone.
Otunba Braimoh made above statement while addressing some groups in Kabba, Kabba/Bunu Local Government Area. According to him, he has a plan that can eradicate poverty in the State, pointing out Kogi State has no reason to be poor with its strategic location, sharing borders with about 10 States as well as the abundant mineral resources.
He stated that he is an unusual Candidate from a new party in the State, noting that the massive defections into the Party is a demonstration of the belief of the electorate in his wealth creation and distribution programmes.

He dispelled rumours that he is being sponsored by present Governor Yahaya Bello, pointing out that he has never met or communicated with the Governor. Otunba Braimoh explained that he knows those peddling the lies, saying he will not be deterred but focused on his goal of becoming the next Governor of Kogi State.
Those Spreading Fake News of Yahaya Bello Bankrolling Me Are Scared of My Rising Political Profile. I’ve never seen Yahaya Bello and Ododo before. They claimed I don’t have structure and money to contest and why are they spreading the fake news? I’m not stepping down for anybody and I am your next Governor.
While urging his supporters and people of Kogi State to disregard the rumour, the AA Governorship Candidate urged the AA party’s Local Government and Ward Executives to continue its aggressive ward-to-ward campaign by preaching the gospel of wealth creation and distribution in the State.
In his response, Kabba/Bunu Local Government AA Chairman, James Sunday (aka Computer) expressed optimism of Victory for the Party in the next month’s Gubernatorial election, urging the people of the State to embrace the good intentions of Otunba Braimoh for the prosperity of the State.
