The Administrator of Adavi local government council, Hon. Abu Enesi Ajoge has commended the All Progressives Congress, APC, led government in Nigeria for being aggressive towards sustaining democracy and good governance in the country.
Ajoge asserted that some of the steps taken by the President Muhammadu Buhari led government to stimulate the nation’s economy, strengthen unity, love and peaceful co-existence among Nigerians shows that the present administration meant well for Nigerians.
Ajoge stated this while fielding questions to newsmen at the 2years in office anniversary celebration yesterday in Lokoja.
He said: “the present administration has set a standard and template for good governance in Nigeria, a move which according to him has culminated into successes recorded on the fight against corruption and insurgency”.
Ajoge held that the APC government in the country has set a new agenda for political parties in the country particularly on the need for those in the positions of authority to prioritize people’s welfare.
He said the present administration in the country has demonstrated clearly the difference between democracy and good governance as being reflected in the laudable achievements made in the last two years.
While commending Governor Yahaya Bello for revolutionalising democracy and good governance in just 2years, Ajoge said the giant strides of Gov. Bello’s administration are testimonies to what government represents.
According to him, it is not a gainsay that APC government has brought about the most desired change which Nigerians have clamoured for over the years.
“The present government in Nigeria has left no one in doubt that democracy and good governance are sine qua non to overall development and nation’s building.
“It is evident that president Muhamadu Buhari led government has demonstrated high sense of commitment to advance Nigeria and rescue Nigerians out of socioeconomic predicaments.
“We are all living witnesses to what has been the motive of successive governments in Nigeria. We all witnessed what has been the priorities of successive governments particularly since 1999 when the country returned to civil rule.
“So, it is not about sycophancy neither it is praise-sing, but about reality and practical impacts of good governance. One doesn’t need to be told before knowing that the APC led government has been so dynamic, pragmatic and committed to people’s welfare and general well being of the nation and her citizenry.
“It is therefore clear that no right thinking Nigerian having juxtaposed the state of the nation about five years ago with the state of the nation now, one will not but salute the unprecedented courage of President Muhammadu Buhari who God has been using to place the country to righteous path of socioeconomic and political prosperity.
“While it is on record that the progressive governments across the country have not in anyway disappointed the Nigerian people, it is noteworthy to say that our own Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello has successfully en-rooted the spirit of service to humanity in all in the state.
“He (Gov. Bello) has realistically and unequivocally turned around the economic fortunes of Kogi State through his commitment to human and capital developments.
“Aside being the engineer of unusual government, his administration has in no measure contributed significantly at turning Kogi State to infrastructural cynosure in the comity of states in Nigeria.
“We are proud to have Bello as our governor because his emergence has brought accolades, encomiums and pride to our dear state through his people-oriented policies and programmes that have impacted tremendously in the lives of all.
“It is on record that Gov. Bello’s administration has witnessed plethora of changes in all sectors particularly on his commitment to development as well as his courage to rescue Kogi people from poverty to prosperity, darkness to light and grass to grace.
“Bello’s administration has made what seems impossible possible. His government has brought unusualism to governance and this has made Kogi State to be the cynosure of transformation, developments and socioeconomic model.
“It is not an hyperbole that in Kogi State today, there is no sector that has not felt his impact. There is no town, community, family and household throughout the state that has not benefited in one way or the other from gov. Bello’s pro-masses policies.
“These among others have been the traits with which millions of us have imbibed from his wealth of progressive politics and political ideology and ideals as he (Gov. Bello) remains a true leader with no equivalence.
“As for me, “to whom much is given, much is expected”, then, all his visions required a rallied-point support from all and sundry particularly to APC governments in the local government and the State in general.” he eulogised.
Ajoge expressed confidence in the ability of the APC government to take the country to enviable point ever known in history, saying “our party is the only political party that can guarantee meaning and sustainable development as we have been doing.”
Itemising some of his administration’s interventions on assumption of office, Ajoge said he has democratilized good governance to the grassroots.
“Our administration has renovated so many health centres, purchased and distributed health facilities to so many health centres in Adavi.”
In a bid to complement the effort of the government in ensuring environmental cleanness, Ajoge said no fewer than three refuse dumping sites have been cleared.
“We have embarked on massive road grading as this gesture cut across the nooks and crannies of communities and streets just as we have concluded plans to the construction of Adavi Civic center.
“We also have concluded plans to collaborated with NYSC on free medical test and treatment for Adavi residents and its adjoining communities while we have been doing our best to improve on welfare package for Community Development Council (CDC) of serving corps members in the district.
“We have not been found wanting on the regular payment of arrears of casual workers allowances as this doesn’t in anyway affect other commitments,” he stressed.
