Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has assured the people of security, promising that the government will not renege on its promises.
Speaking after the Eid-el-Fitri prayers in Okene yesterday, Bello said security agents were fully mobilised to deal with any form of violence.
Noting that the security situation had improved since he assumed duty, Bello said criminals will no longer have a hiding place in Kogi.
Bello empathised with workers, whose salary had not been paid, saying the issue will soon be a thing of the past.
The delay, he noted, was caused by the screening, which he said was aimed at eliminating ghosts from the government payroll.
He urged the people to support his administration to develop the state.
