In Lokoja Christians in Kogi State are aiming to produce the state’s next governor ahead of the general elections in 2023.
In a statement made on behalf of the Forum of Christian Youths, FCY in Politics stated that the next gubernatorial election in Kogi State must deliver a governor of Christian faith.
Although the two main religions in the state have an equal population size, the Kogi State chapter of the FCY stated in a statement following its general meeting that, despite this, Christians have always supported their Muslim brothers in seeking the position of governor because they (the Christian body) are more concerned with the development of the state.

The statement reads, “Since the creation of the State, the Muslim have produced by election all elected governors namely, late Abubakar Audu, Ibrahim Idris, Idris Wada and the incumbent Yahaya Bello.
“The time has come for our Muslim brothers to reciprocate this love by supporting a Christian to become the next Governor of the State in 2024. Conceding to a Christian will further strengthen the bond of love in the state, because the Christian community parades eligible and qualified politicians that can take the state to greater height.”
David Onoja, Humpry Aba, Obolo Opanachi, Kolawole Matthew, Senator Dino Melaye, Philip Salawu, Senator Smart Adeyemi, Abiodun Ojo, and Nicolas Ugbane were among the list of Christians having the authority to lead the state.
