A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kogi State, Senator Smart Adeyemi yesterday declared support for Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.
In a chat with journalists in Kabba, Smart Adeyemi appealed to Kogi people to give the governor maximum support and work together for the overall development of the state.
The Senator applauded the show of sportsmanship displayed by Honourable James Faleke for accepting the Supreme Court judgment in good faith. He said that James Faleke and Governor Yahaya Bello are brothers and both must come together in the overall interest of the state.
He called on James Faleke and his supporters to rally round the governor to ensure that he deliver dividends of democracy to the people of the state.
He also appealed to the entire people of Kogi State irrespective of political affiliation to support the administration of Governor Yahaya Bello for the benefit of the generality of the people.
“If we have to criticize it must be a constructive criticism, we should join hands with him. We don’t have any other state than Kogi so let us put hands together to move the state forward and support the governor,” he appealed.
“We are all brothers, if it is not central it can be west, or east. Central and west are too close to fight, we have never had course to fight among us. We should forget whatever has happened and move forward”, he said.
He also called on the governor to bring everybody on board now that all litigation has ended.
