Join me to liberate Kogi State – Leke Abejide tells Methodist FAITHFULS
Governorship candidate of the African Democractic Congress (ADC) in Kogi State, Elder Leke Abejide, has called on Methodist faithful to partner with him in his journey to create a prosperous state.
He said if elected at the November 11, 2023 poll, there would be improved standard of living for the people, and empowerment for the youths, women and the vulnerable ones through employment generation, training in digital skills and vocational acquisition.
Mbah made the promises at the 11th Synod of the Methodist Church of Nigeria (Okun Diocese) held at Methodist Church headquarters in Lokoja.
He was invited as a guest of honour to address them and declare the synod.
Addressing Methodist worshippers, Abejide enjoined Methodists across the state to partner with him in order to liberate Kogi State.
He said such collaboration is important for the empowerment of the youths, women and the vulnerable in the society through adequate training in entrepreneurship, technology, digital skills and investment in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The governorship candidate said his interest is in turning the fortunes of the state economy around through his programmes and disruptive innovation that will turn them into productive assets, wealth creators and employers of labour.
Leke said as a deep rooted Christian he believes in the biblical quotation of fulfilling any promises made, hence he will deliver on his promises as governor of the state.
The governorship hopeful, who observed the gloomy state of the church however donated N1 million to the church.
He was received by the Bishop of the church, Rt. Rev. Albert Olorunmade.
