Though not a politician, I have keenly followed up events leading to the second coming of Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello as the 6th Executive Governor of Kogi State. Long before the campaign for this current term, it was obvious that all indices were in favour of the young Governor.
Aside from the fact that he had achieved so much in the state during his first tenure, it is a prophesy well established, that God raised him up at this time and season to lead the state out of wilderness into her divine plans and purpose.
Governor Yahaya Bello’s victory at the APC gubernatorial primary and subsequent emergence as the flag bearer of the party he so much love and had laboured for did not come to me as a surprise. Suffice to say that his dogged performance in several areas of governance especially in the security of lives and property of the people still remains second to none in the history of Kogi State.
It is only expected of a man with such a resounding and outstanding record of performance decorated in God’s grace and benevolence to ride on his laudable achievements for a smooth success at the poll.
But his rivalry political detractors have vehemently refused to see the light and accept the fact that the hands of Almighty God rests upon the Governor. They have constantly come up with evil plans and strategies to distract him even as he has remained focused and steadfastly committed in giving his best for the betterment of the state.
Emphatic facts have shown that most of the negative narrations about Governor Bello were mere fabrications born out of jealousy and mischievous orchestrations of moribund political detractors and failed politicians who are bent on taking the State back to its previous sorry condition of retrogression and deprivation.
Graciously, God in His infinite mercies has continuously granted victory to the people’s beloved Governor Yahaya Bello at every stage of the electoral process to further reveal His supremacy over the works of the enemies of Kogi State.
Today, the 31st day of August 2020, just a few days after the state celebrated her 29th anniversary of creation, the Almighty God has again confirmed Governor Bello’s electoral victory at the Supreme Court through an affirmative judgement.
Governor Yahaya Bello is a blessed Child of God and every well-meaning citizen of the state should put away all forms of sentiments and misgivings against the God ordained mandate and rally round the Governor with sincere support and loyalty. All Kogites should join hands with him to pilot the state to an enviable height.
