Princess Iye Grace Adejoh, has declared her interest to contest in the 2019 Kogi governorship election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Mrs Adejoh, who’s a graduate of Chemistry Education from the University of Ilorin, emphasized that only a feminist can rescue Kogi State from the emergency situation it finds itself.
She also stated that as a married woman, her husband has “lost her” until Kogi State is rescued.
“I was driven by passion into contesting gubernatorial election in Kogi State. I am a highly ambitious person, but this time of the day, the situation in Kogi State is an emergency one that needed intervention by a feminist.
“In the next four years or so, Kogi needs to be rescued from the mess it found itself because there is no way this present situation should be tolerated further, if we must have a State.
“No well meaning indigene who has capacity to change the game would sit folding hands. We just have one lifeline to save Kogi State and I am offering myself as governor.
“As a married woman, my husband has lost me now until Kogi is rescued and I commend my husband who is also not happy with the situation in Kogi State”, Adejoh said.
The female PDP aspirant, further highlighted her previous political engagements.
“I have mobilised women to the Villa during the late President Yar’adua to negotiate reopening of our Universities when lecturers went on strike.
“We laid democratic foundation in Kogi State and we were responsible for the election of the former President Olusegun Obasanjo in 1999 and the election of Alhaji Ibrahim Idris in 2003.
“We all worked for the presidential campaign team that produced late President Musa Yar’adua and former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan”, she stated.
