Abubakar Muhammed Ibrahim 

In a political system where some players refused to play to the gallery and preferred the right thing being done different from the unpopular statusquo,it is imperative that indifferent and challenges from those that believed in the slogan of 'business as usual' will resist it body and soul .

But for Abu Ibro,as popularly known by his fans, supporters and political followers,the road to Lugard House was a serious business,so he started soon after the 2015 election that ushered in a new administration in Kogi by 2016.

As the popular saying,Politics is local and local is politics,he began by mobilising youths,opinion leaders,opinion moulders,stakeholders,annexing a formidable squad not only to support his ambition but a political squad that will return PDP to leadership position in Kogi by 2019.

The political ideas and his ideals was focussed,determine,capacity,prepared to take Kogi to another level of political developement devoid of self centredness,but embrace the best practices through mass mobilisation of all and sundry that constitute electoral value and age in Kogi .

He maintained touch,interacts frequently and accessed feedback almost every now and then, even before the idea of who and who will become the party's aspirant or candidate for the election through a wider consultation of his camp and the PDP family by extension.  

Prior to the preparation of the election,the power that be in Kogi ,only contemplated Abu Ibro as the only strong formidable force from all point of assessment and views,with multi dual advantage of emerging victorious even though, with internal schemings of intra party players within PDP.

To the electorates,that formed the Crux of the political activities,it was a waiting game to install a well coordinated,consumate,polish,modest and high level conduct of the callibre of the person of Alhaji Abubakar Ibrahim.

This mindset of kogites was not borne out of anything ,but to usher in good governance, acceptable person,with high level humility, exposed,attentive, unassuming personality that will return the state back to it's feet as displayed by him.

He detonated with ease,the strong position and ideas of institutionalised surrogate of any sorts,clarifying the archaic and unworkability of such arrangements in this modern works and current dispensation without so much disagreements.

Abubakar Ibrahim collapsed all political structures and party's in Kogi into one indivisible, formidable and indisoluble force,with a singular ideas that Kogi must work again, and return to the path of glory,with no creed,religion, tribe and extraction manifest.

In his determination to install the best political practices, though,tasking he ensured delegates list for the November 16, 2019 election was handy and used as working template that ensure his aborted victory in the last election.

This was in addition to dignifying delegates for election of such magnitude, through the introduction of local government tour to meet the delegates and party stakeholders,not only solicit for their votes,but the need to rally round our people so as to revert the leadership gap in Kogi,a feat not achieve since the inception of the state, except during elections,forcing others to join the process,unlike when the delegates are being treated at the mercy of political office seekers,the reverse was the case.

It was the same event, that it was repeatedly emphasised that the spirit of sportmanship was his watchword,not a do or die affair,but not on the basis of conceding to the current charade under the present dispensation. 

With a strong believe on level playing ground,amongst the 15 candidates that vie for the conveted Kogi Governorship election,crowd of heads of stakeholders, supporters,delegates,and well wishers that throunged his maiden visit,left the Wadata office of PDP in hasty doubt,of calculations to allow a former governor complete it's tenure as being taunted.

The unprecedented crowd that spread from Grand Ibro hotel venue of organised reception for the visitors who thronged the collection of nomination form at Wadata ,changed the political equation and calculations being bandied by political actors prior before the September 3 primaries in Lokoja.

Abubakar Ibrahim during visits to the delegates penultimate the primary election,had impressed on the delegates,the fact that we are one PDP, under the umbrella,not minding our personal ambition,but the collective desire to liberate the people was sancrosanct.

He introduced and institutionalised a transparent process by not conscripting the delegates for votes inspite of his high influence and connection, and insisted on due process of both before,during and after the election that was disrupted by political enemies/desperadoes.

Shortchanged in the process,he did not explore the court immediately,but sought for redress through the normal process of complaints and appeal to the NEC,NWC for their intervention thrice, that was not forthcoming,but overrides by self centredness,greed and personal aggrandizement.

Undaunted by the underhand dealings and decision of the leadership of the party,his decision to seek redress in the legal space does not arrogate him as a 'dissident' among the 15 candidates that went in for the exercise,having took second position with some unressolved issues.

Alhaji Abubakar was not unaware of precedence, antecedents and records of such exercise need to be put straight,by approaching the court for proper adjudication and redress of the glaring anomaly, that transpired during the September 3 primaries.

As a sincere and loyal party member,he was neither attracted or engaged in any untoward activities that will affect the PDP's chances going into the November election,worked tirelessly to ensure it's victory,so as to guarantee it's mandate security, and to reclaim having prepared to exhaust all tiers of legal process to the Supreme Court.

Even after all factors that led to the decision of the party to produce another candidate,he gave room for a fact finding mission that led to the lingering primary election impasse in the party,with high hope of reclaiming his stolen mandate as the party's candidate for the last November 16 election in Kogi .

On the whole, Abubakar Ibrahim has approached the Apex court in expectations of a grand decisions from the corridor of the last hope of the common man,to reverse the charade that took place in Lokoja.

It is also to the public knowledge, that he may be the governor in waiting, in view of the highly militarised and massively rigged November 16 election in Kogi, in anticipation and without prejudice to the Apex Court judgement expected in few months.

His offence before the opponents is his consistency, steadfastness, loyalty, determination,focus to reclaim his stolen mandate through legitimate means.

He who Laugh Last, May Laugh Best,Time Shall Always Tell.
