Some stakeholders in Kogi State have commended the development and transformation efforts of Governor Yahaya Bello so far, despite the distractions visited on the government by some external elements.
In particular, they applauded the governor for the massive rehabilitation of rural and urban roads in the State, as well as his attention to the welfare and security interests of the people, which is the primary purpose of government.
The Kogi Democratic Forum, KDF, comprising leaders of thought from the State, made this commendation in a statement as part of events marking the 25th anniversary of the creation of the State.
Leader of the group, Alhaji Ozigi Omeiza in a statement in Abuja, observed that there is paradigm shift in the political governance of the state, which has resulted into an equitable and balanced distribution of appointments and development projects among the three geo-political and cultural groups in the state.
He claimed that no part of the State is being left out in the scheme of things as all the on-going projects especially, roads rehabilitation and other infrastructural facilities such as water schemes, schools, health care delivery and agriculture are being fairly distributed across the three Senatorial Zones of the state.
According to the leader, “The emergence of Governor Yahaya Bello’s administration is providential. We are very grateful to God who brought him on board at this point in time to salvage our State from the grips of backwardness and forces of retrogression. He has been fair-minded in the way and manner he is distributing development projects in the State. No part of the Kogi is being left out in the scheme of things.”
