✔️Biraidu District – Nill.
Biraidu has always witnessed marginalisation in the past which is believed to have weighed down political emotions of the political key players and Populace in Biraidu District of Dekina, But it’s belived that the Administration of H.E Alh. Yahaya Bello which is widely known for Equity & Justice will look into the Cries of Biraidu Electorates against the Upcoming 2023 General Election.
Onogwu Muhammed Galacticus From Ajonoja in Abocho Ward is one of the most Celebrated Sons of the Land because of his Consistency, Diligence, Competence, Commitment and Loyalty to his Assignment as the Chief Press Secretary to the Executive Governor of Kogi State H.E Alh. Yahaya Bello.
It’s on this note we call on His Excellency Alh. Yahaya Bello as a Leader of the Party and other relevant stakeholders of the Party to look into the Plea of Biradu Populace and give us the Opportunity for Representation at the Green Chamber this time around.
