The leadership of the Igala Youth Council has endorsed Alhaji Murtala Yakubu Ajaka as her candidate for the next Gubernatorial election in Kogi State.


The National President Comrade Collins Onogu while making announcement stated that amongst other candidates/aspirants of from Kogi East, Alhaji Ajaka has over the years shown commitment, dedication, love, empathy and sympathy towards the plight and growth of the Zone.

He further stated that, the Council made this choice without bias or any form of subjugation premised on selfish interest but out of total commitment to ensure a very credible candidate emerges to represent Kogi East for the Guber polls come November.

In all of the criteria used to assess all of the candidates from the East, Muri AJAKA dwarfed every other person in candidate popularity, acceptability, and sellability in the forth coming election.
Muri has proven to be a true son of the soil for standing tall against all the shenanigans of the current Governor who used his normal crafty and nefarious activties to scuttle and deprive other aspirants from Kogi East from contesting.

The Council appreciates all sons who picked forms in other platforms to govern Kogi, noting that their show of interest to contest shows majority of Kogites are tired of the self serving style of Governance of the present handler which has plunged the State into backwardness in all realms of governance.
We are appealing to them to see themselves as worthy sons who are also qualified but for the interest of the zone join hands with Alhaji Murtala Yakubu Ajaka to achieve a formidable force come November election.

The Council called on all Kogites in general and Kogi Easterners in particular to rally round support for Alhaji Muri Yakubu Ajaka to ensure the State is liberated from the shackles of maladministration currently experienced.

The Council warns those Elders and other stakeholders from the zone who have compromised the process of harmonization to desist from such acts that are inimical and capable of causing disharmony, confusion, and disaffection amongst our candidates but should rather seek ways to bond a common interest for the good of the land adding that at this point, our interest must be communally driven towards having a sole candidature in the person of Alhaji Murtala Yakubu who is more acceptable as it stands now for the electoral challenge ahead of us.

However we want to recommend our position on ANÉ AYÉGBA candidate to Kogi 2023 in focus, ICDA and other critical stakeholders to follow suit for the betterment of our Kingdom and Kogi in general.

Lastly, the Council is calling on Alhaji Murtala Yakubu, to without further delay, pick form on any party of choice, else his actions/inaction will be considered as betrayal to Igala Land and Kogi State in general.

This decision was unanimously agreed and taken by all Executives of the Council rising from her last round of assessment of the candidates from Kogi East.
