CANDIDATE of Young Progressive Party (YPP) in the November 16 governorship election in Kogi State, Prof. Aisha Audu, has urged the Federal Government to clear Kogi State of all illegal arms and ammunition ahead of the poll.
Audu has also promised to rebuild and restore peace in the state, if elected governor.
She made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
NAN reports that Audu is the widow of the late Abubakar Audu, former governor of the state, who served between 1999 and 2003.
The YPP standard bearer described the forthcoming election as an examination in which the people would come out with the scorecard, and not a war.
She said: “We are going into an examination, that is how I see the November 16 Kogi governorship election.
“The world is watching, the international community is concerned and the reports are not good.
“I believe the government will not take this for granted and do something to stop the killings in Kogi in the name of power sharing.”
