The Governor of Kogi State, Capt. Idris Wada, has declared his readiness for the November 21 governorship poll, if given the nod by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to fly its flag, saying he is battle ready to defeat any opponent.
Wada, who is vying for a second term, disclosed this during an interactive session with journalists in Abuja.
According to the governor, he has prudently managed the resources of the state in the face of dwindling revenue from the federation account to the state for policies and projects with direct bearing on the people.
Wada said the people of the state will assess him based on the available resources at his disposal to provide service to the people, saying that he offered himself to the service of the people to make life meaningful for them.
His words: “This is the only reason I am here. For me, leadership is about service to the people. Once you are selfless, the people will be with you.”
When asked if he is scared about facing a former governor in the November 21 governorship poll, Wada said he is prepared for any opponent in the election.
“I am certainly not scared of anybody. We have done it before during the last governorship election. We must remember that power comes from God and he gives it to whom he pleases”.
