The mother of Kogi state governor, Hajia Hawawu Bello has commended the efforts of Okene Local Government Administrator, Mallam Abdulrazaq Muhammad on his successful outing in the area during the just concluded gubernatorial election.
Hajia Bello stated this when the Council boss paid her a congratulatory visit to celebrate with her.
“I heard all you have been doing and how you stood firmly behind my son, the Governor of Kogi State. I am aware of the election results from Okene Local Government and I know how you ensured there’s peace and tranquility before, during and after the election. May God reward you. You will certainly reap the fruit of your labour,” she prayed.
She went further to charge the Council Administrator not to relent but redouble his efforts in prayers for Allah to grant her son the needed wisdom, sound health and long life to successfully pilot the affairs of the state.
She thanked the people of Ebira land for their show of love, support and prayers to ensure her son succeed.
Earlier in his address, the Administrator said he led the high powered delegation, which include elders from the eleven wards of Okene Local Government, to her as part of the ongoing celebration of the successful re-election of Gov. Yahaya Bello.
“I made a similar visit before the election to assure you of our commitment to the second term bid of the Governor and today, we are here to thank God who in His infinite mercy, gave us victory against all odds.”
The Council Administrator reiterated his commitment to ensure Okene Local Government under his watch remain peaceful and reassured her that government will continue to place the security of lives and property of the citizenry as a matter of top priority.
