Hon. (Engr) Abubakar Momoh, Edo North Senatorial Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has promised to end the ineffective representation of the deputy Senate Chief Whip, Senator Francis Alimikhena, in the forthcoming election.
Momoh, who spoke to Journalists in Auchi, insisted that he would not only hand him a crushing defeat but also render him jobless soon after the next year election.
Both candidates have been in a sort of war of words over who commands the peoples trust in Edo North Senatorial District.
In particular, Hon Momoh advised the serving senator to avail himself of the prospect of an imminent recruitment exercise at Auchi Polytechnic to apply for a security job because very soon he will be jobless after his anticipated defeat next year.
The PDP Senatorial Candidate also vowed to ensure that Senator Alimikhena was
roundly defeated, whether or not he(Alimikhena) accepts the free offer of a public debate.
While wondering how his harmless offer of debate has brought to public glare
the “worst” side of the distinguished senator, Hon Momoh promised to
restore Edo North to its rightful place once elected.
He pointed out that Edo North geo political zone is hugely endowed materially and humanly but has suffered so much under a rudderless representation.
The former two term House of Representatives member said he has so far refrained from descending low as a result of his strong belief in the people whose mandate he is currently seeking, stressing that the major reason he chose to maintain a dignified posture and not resort to ungentlemanly tantrums like Senator Alimikhena is because he sees himself as an Edo North patriot who desires to restore the zone’s “lost glory and vibrant voice”.
Momoh however refused to shift grounds in his demand for an organised public debate which will pitch both leading contenders for the sole Edo North senatorial seat.
