Pastor Akanmode, while speaking to journalists in Lokoja on the resolutions of the party stakeholders to adopt Dr. Akanle, commended their collective decision as regards the adoption of Dr. Akanle which according to him was based on the report of the Elders Advisory Councils from the three local governments in Yagba Federal constituency.
He hailed the decision of party leaders from the three local governments in Yagba land for conceding the senate seat to Yagba East based on equity, fairness and justice.
According to him ,the description of Dr. Akanle as the “most experienced, highly intelligent, generally acceptable, vast in knowledge with intimating credentials, the best and preferred candidate to represent Kogi west” can not be far from the truth.
Pastor Akanmode called on well meaning sons and daughters of the district to support Dr Akanle’s aspiration to represent the area at the Red chamber of the National Assembly, adding that Dr. Akanle has all it takes to make Kogi West better placed to get the best considering his exposure and vast knowledge.
