The face of the Senate Kogi West and a multifaceted entrepreneur Bisimillahi Ibrahim Tajudeen BIT has described his senatorial aspiration as one which is born out of patrotism rather than venturing into the game of power.
The youthful APC stalwart and a leading aspirant to the senate Kogi west declared this briefly after picking up the senate nomination/intent form at APC National Secretariat, Abuja early today. “As a grassroot politician with humble beginnings I have lived among our people for more than three decades. I have always organised them, empowered them and educate them to perform their civic responsibilities to which some of our representatives have enjoyed our collective mandates with little to show for it in the immediate past and present.
Our people especially at the rural dwellers and youth have invested in leadership but it’s so unfortunate that we still remain at the bottom of development.
I am privileged to have travelled wide and have to compared what we have in this end with other parts and realized we have strong comparative advantage in terms of physical and human capital resources.
Our major challenge is lack of political will by our leaders to use these resources to achieve meaningful development.
Having supported others and used our good will to collaborate with many of the leaders to facilitate development presence to our district I still believe our people deserve more than we have at present.
Today, we have began the process of signing social contract with the people of Kogi West which by the special grace of Almighty we shall actualise for our people.
I Bisimillahi Ibrahim Tajudeen hereby call on the good people of Kogi West especially the grassroots, women, senior citizens and especially the youth generation which I represent to come together and rally me in the process of rebuilding kogi west back to status of honour and pride it deserved”.
