In his remarks, KFF said the consultation visit was to interact with the APC stakeholders in Yagba and to formally declare his intention to represent them at the Green Chambers of the National Assembly; seeking their support.

Fanwo stressed that he has the capacity, experience and capability to deliver a better legislative representation and surpass the achievements of the current lawmaker representing Yagba people at the lower chamber of the National Assembly.

”Though, in terms of human capacity development, the current lawmaker has tried his best, but we will do better.

”When we get the APC ticket, we will defeat him by God’s grace at the general elections,” he said.

KFF, who is the Kogi Commissioner for Information and Communications, restated: ”By the grace of God, 2023 will be different; APC will win and win massively.

He appealed to the people to forgive in whatsoever way he might have offended them, saying, ”our party must be on the path of truth and fairness, so that it can be stronger and better.

”Let us look for a House of Representives member that can best represent the interest of our people and KFF is the best person that can fill that vacuum,” Omoyele said.

On his part, Moses appealed to the people to join hands together to support KFF’s ambition, while urging them to forgive any shortcoming noticed.
