Governor Idris Wada of Kogi state has urged the people of the state not to despair in the face of the challenges that currently confront the state and the nation.

In a new year message released recently in Lokoja by his Chief Communications Manager, Phrank Shaibu, the governor charged the people of the state to see the new year with renewed optimism, and to be active participants in the struggle to emancipate the state from the shackles of poverty and underdevelopment. 
He thanked the people of the state for conducting themselves peacefully during the last governorship election and expressed satisfaction at the decorous manner in which the people of the state have always handled outcomes of elections even when it is rigged out of their favour.
He however urged his supporters to remain calm and allow the party to use due process, as it has always done, to deal with the issues of mass rigging and the strange replacement of All Progressives Congress (APC)  candidate in the middle of an election, in the true and time-tested style of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The statement urged the people of the state to pray for an end to the security, political and economic challenges currently confronting the nation.

He made the disclosure while addressing stakeholders and supporters of his party, the PDP, at a meeting in the state capital, Lokoja on Tuesday, December 8.

It will be recalled that  held on Saturday, December 5.

In a similar vein, the PDP rejected announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission on Sunday, December 6.

Speaking through its agent, Captain Joe Agada at the headquarters of the INEC in Lokoja, the party condemned the exercise, describing it as a “kangaroo election”.
