Kogi sate grassroots political observer and the public affair Mr Enemama Sam Akubor
speaking about the choice of Senator Aidoko replacement described Alhaji Jibrin Isah Echocho as not alternative described him as a lazy man who lacks capacity to withstand public pressure,
d to make another mistake again.
This is the man the called ECHOCHO the man who is forced to become our senator come 2019, sleeping at an occasion if i should make an assumption as well as possible political logic it will tell me and other lovers of kogi east that this might be the way he will go become a sleeping senator.
habba the truth, he need rest not to be stressing himself on a position that he is not sure of winning, Kogi east need a younger representatives and not the sleeping Senator, Echocho has the habit of sleeping in any public fora which some considered to be spiritual.
Till date, Kogi East which constitutes more than half of the state population is still in search of a political character to be presented as the governor of the state come 2019 (though not their birth right). Some political analysts see the possib. Some political analysts see the possibility in Echocho provided his relevance remains intact. At the grassroots in Kogi State, many are aware that the failure of APC is not at the national but at the state level. People increasingly are now seeking to understand politics rather than politicians.
Only a few months back, Yahaya Bello, the governor had identified Echocho as the Kogi East priest who needed to be appeased instead of the gods. In so doing, Bello is missing the blessing while Echocho is drawing the wrath. Both may be victims but the latter have much to lose.
It has been said that the intricacy of the relationship between Bello and Echocho is one of political alignment; the desire of the latter to be made a senator and to use that influence to campaign for reelection of the former who in turn will actualise the governorship ambitions of the latter. These calculations are far-off range that no political formula could be used to support them.
The reason for this is that some variables are missing. That is; Bello’s lack of political popularity and his deliberate arrogance at state workers who are experiencing untold hardships. Bearing in mind that the majority of workers in the state are the state civil servants, no political leader can succeed reelection without their pleasure. Idris Wada is a victim of this.
Echocho has made much public declarations in support of Governor Yahaya Bello. He once remarked the divine ordination of his leadership of the state. Does this mean his own failure to be leader of the state is divine?
