The Natasha Akpoti campaign trail left Lokoja for Kogi Central today.
The Social Democratic Party (SDP) candidate was greeted with pomp, fanfare and pageantry.
The cheerful crowd trooped out in their scores in adulation to welcome their highly revered great daughter.
The euphoria of her arrival at Ihima, the Okehi Local Government headquarters spread like wildfire, leading almost to a stampede, as owners of provision stores and roadside food sellers abandoned their shops and businesses to catch a glimpse of a young woman who they so much love and would vote to be their next governor.
In her standard style of cheerful human relations, Natasha Akpoti stood through the open roof of her car and acknowledged the thunderous cheers from the tumultuous crowd.
By and large, in all the three senatorial districts where Natasha and her entourage campaigned, the people wished and prayed fervently for her to emerge winner of the Nov. 16 governorship poll so she can redeem them from the clutches of tyranny, poverty, insecurity, nonpayment of salaries, unwholesome job loss and terrible leadership which has become the lot under the Yahaya Bello led administration.
