Kogi Governorship Race: SDP Rejects Muri, Endorse Braimoh in Bassa LGA

The Social Democratic Party (SDP) Bassa Local Government Area has collapsed the structures of six out of ten wards with Action Alliance (AA), declaring their support for Olayinka Braimoh, Governorship Candidate of the party.

The event, which took place over the weekend at Oguma town hall, had the six ward’s former Chairmen of SDP in attendance; Jimba Tukura, Jere Joseph, Luke Jere, Samuel Kpanachi, Wodi Lazarus, John Nyizogembi of Ozugbe, Akuba 2, Ozungulo, Akuba 1, Ikende and Akanana Ayede wards respectively.

Speaking at the event, the Chairmen took turn to explain the reasons behind their collective decision to leave SDP and join AA.

Their primary reason centered on the wealth creation and distribution (STAT) agenda of Olayinka Braimoh which has proven beyond reasonable doubt that the inherent benefit is capable of bringing happiness to the State.

They all spoken in one voice that hunger knows no tribe, religion or party and since the agenda will address the nagging issue of poverty and hunger in the state, they are ready to ensure Braimoh’s victory at the poll through their votes.

They talked about the Seria bridge, which is made of wood and happens to be the only route to their market, saying that in the history of the town, no candidate has ever crossed over but that Olayinka Braimoh did not only cross over the bridge but took time to walk round the market in solidarity with the plights of their people. On this singular reason, they all agreed that he deserves their votes.

Thereafter, the chairmen with the entire members of the wards tore their SDP membership cards to symbolize their exit from the party.

On his part, the Action Alliance candidate, Otunba Olayinka Braimoh was extremely worried about the states of things in the community.

He said, “Bassa people are working so hard, yet there is no significant infrastructure and road for them to take their produce to the market. Walking and transporting their produce through a wooden bridge is extremely dangerous, risky and counterproductive. This is part of what the STAT agenda has come to address and the only way to ensure implementation of the agenda is for them to come out en-masse on November 11 to vote for Olayinka Braimoh of Action Alliance”.

Today, I am happy that the structures of SDP are being collapsed with AA. This shows that people aren’t just talking about moving from poverty to prosperity but, against all odds, they are taking the right actions that will eventually translate to victory for our party which will invariably, through the STAT agenda, bring the much needed progress to the State”
