Benin – Mr. Thompson Osadolor, the governorship candidate of KOWA Party in Edo State, on Thursday, advised those eligible to vote in Edo State poll in September not to vote for “moneybags” who, he said, do not mean well for the people.

Osadolor gave the advice in Benin, while speaking with newsmen after his nomination as the candidate of KOWA Party for the September 10 governorship poll.

He noted that what the moneybag politicians do, is to buy the people with their money and end up doing nothing when voted into office.

Osadolor attributed the challenges of Nigeria’s democracy to “money politics” which, according to him, has contributed largely to the underdevelopment in all facets of the country’s national life.

“It is as a result of this money politics that our leaders hardly do well in office. Because they are there for themselves and not for me and you, that accounts for the reason they use every means possible to place themselves as leaders of the parties,” he stated.

He urged the people to learn how to support political parties and their candidates based on ideology and not money.

He said this is exactly what the KOWA party intends to change in the country’s politics.

He promised that when voted into office, his people-oriented government would within the shortest possible time, address the problem of unemployment and invest heavily in education.

The KOWA candidate who goes by the nickname, “The Mechanic,” said he knew all the challenges confronting the state and its people and has solutions to them.

Mr. Otasowie Omigie, state chairman of the party, had in his address, said KOWA party represents moral re-alignment in the country.

He said the aim “is to educate the people to begin to see politics differently and also encourage massive encouragement of the populace to begin to participate actively in politics.”

About 400 delegates nominated the only aspirant, Thompson Osadolor, as candidate of the party for the September 10 Edo governorship poll.
