“The group drew inference from decisions taken at its preliminary meetings which largely pointed to the fact that the government of Kogi State and the people of Kogi West Senatorial District needed more collaborative effort and a marshal plan to advance the interest of the district with whoever is elected as the next governor of the State on November, 16, 2019.

“Consequent upon the above and arising from the deliberation between the governor and the Forum, we hereby adopt the following resolutions:

“That the Forum will, going forward, engage in regular interactions with the government in order to achieve the aspiration of the people of Western Senatorial District.”
