‘Seun Ibukun-Oni, Abuja


Daily Courier – A senatorial aspirant Barrister Labaran Mogaji vying to replace the new national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) senator Abdullahi Adamu has promised to prioritize youth unemployment in order to reduce growing insecurity.

Mogaji who is a lawyer and federal prosecutor revealed his priorities if voted to the Senate after purchasing his expression of interest to contest for the seat of Nasarawa West senatorial district yesterday in Abuja.

He admitted that Nasarawa West senatorial district is one of the most talked about senatorial districts in Nigeria by the reason of the fact that it’s the seat formerly occupied by the current national chairman of the party Senator Abdullahi Adamu for close to eleven years before his emergence as chairman.

“I choose to pick the form to replace him on the seat by virtue of the experience we have gathered over the years in our field of chosen endeavour having contributed our quota not only to the polity, not only the government but the unification of this country using the instrumentality of my job as a federal prosecutor. I thought towing this line will further enhance my opportunity to helping this country at a greater level.”

On his plans for Nasarawa West senatorial district after the long stint by senator Abdullahi Adamu, Mogaji said,

“This is one senatorial district that should be occupied not by mediocres but people who have value to add to the system. We are aware that the party from the conventional way of constituency projects, there are several other things that we can do differently using our wisdom as young men who have traversed the country and beyond to bring on board other things which hitherto have not been in existence. One of those things is to access jobs to our youths who are really unemployed having graduated knowing that that is one reason for the growing insecurity.

“Secondly, we have to find a way of creating wealth for our teaming poor peasants who have no where to go and nothing to feed on. These are the two agendas that we are going to advance and we are going to advance them with passion by virtue of our position at the national assembly. This will be extended to the entire country.”

Speaking further, he said he is prepared should INEC choose to go the route of 180 days basis to fill the vacant senatorial position.

“I am fully prepared for any eventuality. We are also fully prepared to come back here and pick that form in replacement of that seat but what we are doing today is preparation for 2023 and we are awaiting the outcome of whatever decision INEC may take before we take the next line of action” he added.
