All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, has picked Dr. Umar Akwu Goodman as its candidate for the November gubernatorial election in Kogi State.
Unveiling Umar in Abuja at the party’s secretariat over the weekend, APGA National Chairman, Victor Ike Oye, said APGA did a meticulous search out of the many persons that indicated interest to fly the party’s flag and found that Goodman met all the necessary requirements.
Oye described the candidate as an astute politician, grassroots person, activist and champion of the cause of the downtrodden, adding that APGA as a political party with clean bill of health and only viable option committed to transforming the political landscape of the state by ensuring that politics is played with love, respect, dignity and constitutionality.
He said: “Our activity in the last couple of months has shown that we are going to win. Now that we have unveiled our candidate, candidates of other parties will scamper to safety; we are ready to take Kogi by storm.
