A former Governor of Kogi State, Capt Idris Wada (rtd) has joined the
governorship race in the state. Wada in an interview with journalists in
Abuja on Monday after collecting his Expression of Interest and
Nomination Forms said Kogi State was in a precarious situation.

said, “The November election is critical to the survival of Kogi State.
Kogi was on a part of progress as of the time I left and if I had spent
four more years, with the kind of money that’s coming into the hands of
this present governor, Kogi would have become a state that all of us
would have been proud of.


“Many people have come out who want to
contest as the governor of Kogi State in November election, but
experience is key. Kogi is right now like quicksand, the more you
wriggle, the deeper you sink. So if you bring a greenhorn, who has no
proper knowledge of the workings of Kogi State, he will spend the first
two years trying to find his feet.”
