Senator Attai Aidoko is in hot soup as his second term ambition of representing Kogi East Senatorial District at the upper chamber has hit a brick wall.
We gathered that the youths and good people of Kogi East Senatorial District have rejected his second term ambition. Sources said that the senator has enlisted thugs to disrupt the forthcoming primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
We were told that the lawmaker has perfected plans to engage the services of thugs to harass delegates that are not committed to him thereby forcing himself on the people.
We were told the senator also planned to refuse other aspirants access to the venue of the election and that he is working with some powerful people in the party to achieve his aim.
Sources disclosed that the senator planned to cause mayhem if things don’t go his way, and that he has told his cronies that he will threaten officials into submission so that he could have his way.
According to a source; “Senator Aidoko is desperate to return to the senate chamber in 2019 at all cost. He is using all within his power to get the ticket of the party despite his unpopularity.”
“We are tired of him as our senator. He has been there twice, but we cannot see what he has achieved. Even at that, let him submit himself for primaries. If the people want him he would see and if they don’t want him, then he should go back home and allow us to try another person. Enough is enough,” said a reliable source.”
“The youths in Kogi East Senatorial District had earlier rejected the re-election of Senator Attai Aidoko as the 2019 General Elections approach. Aidoko is the longest-serving federal lawmaker from Kogi East, but that ironically, “the worst amongst all, as he has serially failed us in terms of good legislation, provision of amenities through constituency projects and youth empowerment. Aidoko should be told the naked truth. He must be told that the seat of Kogi East doesn’t belong to his family neither any godfather.”
The youths also said that; “Senator Aidoko has provided poor representation, starting from his days in the House of Representatives, where he represented Ankpa/Omala/Olamaboro Federal Constituency from 2003 to 2011 and served as Chairman, House Committee on Federal Capital Territory, and later as Chairman, Senate Committee on SEGS. As a Senator, he can’t point at one single thing as achievement that we can call his Constituency project.”
“He is only after his personal interest and that of his godfather which is not good for our people in need of development. In fact, Aidoko is a liability on the good people of Kogi East and he has no political relevance in both the region and at the national level,Attai Aidoko as Chairman Senate Committee on SDG sold contracts and did virtually all the contracts using proxies they stated.He’s that self centred “they alleged.”
“Senator Aidoko hails from Ugbamaka-Igah in Olamaboro Local government and that as the Chairman, Senate Committee on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) there is no project that has come to our land but other senators buy contracts from Senator Aidoko for the interest of their constituencies and he converts the proceeds into buying exotic cars for personal use amid the untold suffering of our people. In 2019 ‘by God’s grace,’ Kogi East must decide their future.”
“Kogi East youths and other constituents should resolve to rally round a common cause that will ultimately produce Dr. Victor Alewo Adoji as the next Senator to represent us come 2019 by God’s grace. Victor Adoji has the requisite qualities to take development to Kogi East and that he is a man with vision and determination to get things done properly for Igala people as a senator.”
