With This Victory, We Owe Kogi People Good Governance – Governor Yahaya Bello
The Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has hailed the historic judgement delivered by the panel of judges handling petitions on Kogi State Governorship Election, which upheld his victory, saying the victory at the tribunal is further call to give good governance to the people of the state.
Governor Bello said it was obvious that the All Progressives Congress recorded victory at both the November 21, 2015 general election and December 5, 2015 supplementary election and that the change the people voted for will spur his government to transform the state and empower the people.
He said the victory dedication would not be complete without paying tribute to the late leader of the party, Prince Abubakar Audu, who died in the course of the election that changed the political history of the country, describing the late Prince Audu as a political martyr whose spirit will help enliven the New Direction resolve.
The Governor called on all Kogi people to rally round his administration in its bid to create a state where opportunities abound for the people to aspire to their aspirations. He promised to ensure the protection of the rights of the people of the state and to open up new economic frontiers for inclusive empowerment.
According to Governor Bello, the State Government is building a reliable database for payment of wages and improved workforce for effective service delivery to the people of the state. He said government will generate more revenue for infrastructural development and social security, calling on all his opponents to join his New Direction government to move the state forward, saying it is time to strengthen the ropes of unity across the state.
