Mr Audu Mustapha has declared his intention to run for the governorship election in Kogi State come November 2019.
Mustapha Audu is the 6th son of the late former governor of Kogi state, Abubakar Audu. Audu was governor of Kogi state from January 1992 until November 1993 and from 29 May 1999 to 29 May 2003.
He declared his intention in Abuja on Wednesday while holding a press conference.
Audu Mustapha condemned the present government of Yahaya Bello saying nothing good can be pointed at their performance. He equally said that civil servants are suffering while the state of infrastructure and education was not receiving attention.
He vowed to end the suffering if elected to Lord Lugard House in November 2019.
Audu Mustapha finished from the University of Glasgow and when asked if he had what it takes to run for the Governorship race, he said he was “qualified to lead this state because I believe in the decency of the Kogi people.”
He said he was yet to choose a political party to champion his ambition for Kogi government but that he was consulting with stakeholders.
Audu Mustapha is an entrepreneur from Ogbonicha-Alloma in Ofu Local Government Area of Kogi State.
