Governor Bello Has No Hand In The Arrest Of Suspects In Ekinrin Adde
Posted On Mar 22, 2016
The attention of the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has been drawn to some spurious allegations of complicity in the arrest of some suspected hoodlums by the police at Ekinrin Adde.
We wish to set the record straight here that the role of protecting lives and properties is the task of security agencies. They have the constitutional right to protect the citizens of the country.
The puerile attempt at parrying the ignominy of anti-development agents through blame shifting will not hold waters under the present administration in the state. Politics is over. It is high time we embraced development.
In as much as we would not want to be drawn to the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the destruction of government properties in the area, we urge citizens of our dear state to stay clear of attempts at bringing the state into chaos.
The Governor will continue to see Kogi State as his constituency and the uncivilized conduct of a few anti-people elements will not derail the New Direction of the present administration aimed at lifting the standards of living of the citizenry.
