"Ochaja is in Dekina Local Government Area, the Local Government of origin of Engr Musa Wada who was the Governorship candidate of the PDP. Kogi has really been sociologically re-engineered to defeat ethnic bigotry.

The reception I have received here shows how joyous our people have been. GYB is their Governor, the man that has cleaned the lines of divisions, pulled down the walls of segregation and brought unity and development. The general feeling of the populace is quite understandable.
