Governor Yahaya Bello wishes to, on behalf of the Government and people of Kogi State, express heartfelt gratitude to Almighty Allah for the restoration of health and return of our leader and President, Muhammadu Buhari back into the country following medical treatment abroad. Nigerians have shown how much they love and support the president through an uncommon demonstration of their unflinching loyalty and faith in the leader they overwhelmingly voted into office in 2015. This is an attestation to the fact that Nigerians are satisfied in the leadership of the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The Governor enjoins Nigerians to unite and join hands with President Muhammadu Buhari to complete the work they had begun in setting Nigeria on the right path and building a country every Nigerian would be proud of. Governor Bello acknowledges that the people have huge expectations of government at all levels and are eager for the APC to deliver the dividends of democracy to them. These expectations are legit. And the President has shown commitment to meeting the yearnings of his people. This is evident in the successes recorded in the areas of fighting insecurity, reducing unbridled corruption and improving the nation’s economy.
As President Buhari carries on the leadership of our country Nigeria, Governor Bello urges us all to shun primordial and basic sentiments, put the nation first and rally round Mr. President to make Nigeria work for us even as he wishes him the best of health of mind, body and soul.
Governor Bello also wishes to extend profound appreciation to the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, for showing excellent leadership skills in steering the ship of the Nation as Acting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, his patriotism and sense of duty to Nigerians and unquestionable loyalty to President Buhari. It is my fervent hope and unshakeable conviction that this is the dawn of greater things to happen under this administration to the benefit of Nigerians.
Long live President Muhammadu Buhari
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
