A former journalist now a Senator representing Kogi West , Smart Adeyemi said he is the most experienced and courageous aspirant running for the governorship election of Kogi state.
The senator made this known after he purchased his Expression of Interest form at the headquarters of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Abuja.
“I am exposed enough to give the best to our people,” Adeyemi boasts to reporters.
But he will not be the only political gladiator in the ring, Abdulkarim Asuku, chief of staff to Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi; and James Faleke, a serving house of representatives member; are also in the run for the coveted seat in the confluence state.
Adeyemi: “I am going to contest for governor of Kogi state. I have enough experience of what governance should be and have challenges of governance. I have been lucky to represent my state in the senate three times.
“It is to my credit that I am one of the lawmakers that have sponsored the highest number of bills passed into law. I have the courage to lead and fight for the survival of the less privileged.
“I am exposed enough to give the best to our people. In politics, people contest for varied interests. Some of our contests are to see what value we can add to the lives of others and improve on what has been achieved.
“Some other aspirants have also collected the form but I am the aspirant to beat as far as required support and goodwill across the state are concerned.”
Adeyemi is currently serving a third term as senator.
He was elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the first two terms and the third on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
