Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Itodo Daniel Sule, Lokoja

A group, Na­tional Coali­tion of Ebira/ Okun/Lokoja-Koto Youth yesterday adopted the PDP gu­ber­na­to­rial flag bearer, Idris Wada, as its con­sen­sus can­di­date for the Novem­ber 21 gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion in Kogi State.

Co-or­di­na­tor of the group, Zac­cha­eus Dare Michael, said the coali­tion, which is made up of youth from across 12 LGAs of the state, de­cided to adopt Wada af­ter due con­sul­ta­tions and in recog­ni­tion of his track record of per­for­mance in the state.

“We have taken our time to look at all the can­di­dates con­test­ing the gov­er­nor­ship elec­tion, their an­tecedents, their con­duct in public and pri­vate life, the man­i­festos of their par­ties and their pro­grammes, all have been sub­jected to thor­ough screen­ing. All stake­hold­ers and opin­ion lead­ers we con­tacted were also unan­i­mous in their pref­er­ence for the in­cum­bent gover­nor, Capt. Idris Wada and his deputy, Yomi Awoniyi,” the group said.
