The Deputy Governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress in the November 11 election in Kogi state, Dr. Omede Idris, says his party is committed to finding an end to the perennial water shortage experienced in Kogi East if voted into power.
He made the promise during his homecoming visit to the Eastern Senatorial District in the state on Thursday.
According to him, “We have mapped out the strategy to review the project of water supply to the entire Kogi East through the abandoned Ejule Water Supply and Reticulation within our first hundred days in office
“Already our team and party have the road map to revamp the project and we are going to invite all the experts to join us to bring this project back, in both the long and short term.
We are innovators and multiplicators in all human ramifications. These qualities you would begin to see as we assume leadership in the state”.
Dr. Omede further told the gathering that his principal, Elder Leke Abejede has agreed that the welfare of the people would be the centre of his administration.
The deputy governorship candidate reiterated the commitment of his team to execute all projects that would guarantee that businesses thrive naturally in all the sectors of the state.
“Politics and democracy should be about people-centered programmes and in our times, we shall show commitment and support to every single community-based project development in every part of the state.
“The state has gone through all manner of challenges, especially in the area of paying percentage salaries to public workers in local government areas. We intend to make the councils responsible for providing alternatives to developing human and capital development within a short time in office.
“Our state capital and all the 20 council headquarters will receive the required attention through infrastructure development,” he added.
