I WOULD LEAVE BEHIND MASSIVE INFRASTRUCTURAL DEVELOPMENT IN KOGI STATE – GOVERNOR YAHAYA BELLO
Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has said he would ensure massive infrastructural development in Kogi State before he completes his second term in office.
Mohammed Onogwu, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, quoted him as saying this while speaking at a thanksgiving mass at Christ Christ the King Catholic Church, Okene, on Sunday, September 6th, 2020.
The thanksgiving was held to commemorate his victory at the Supreme Court.
Recall that last week, the apex court dismissed the appeals filed by Musa Wada of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), and Natasha Akpoti of the Social Democratic Party (SDP).
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Bello, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as winner of the Governorship election in November 2019, but his opponents challenged his victory in court.
The Governor said he is now fully focused on governance as his administration seeks to consolidate on its first term’s modest achievements.
According to him, his administration is committed to ensuring the peaceful co-existence of all residents in Kogi to help the Government actualize his lofty desire.
Bello said the State Government recognizes all religions and ensures fair and equal treatment to them all.
He urged all clerics in the state to preach peace to all their followers, irrespective of their dispositions.
