Stop Inciting Nigerians against Buhari or Face the Full Wrath of the Law, Bello warns Leaders


Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has warned some leaders in the country against inciting Nigerians against the president Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

Bello who gave the warning on Monday in his country home in Okene during the Eid-el-Kabir prayers said Buhari is doing his best to transform the country and any leader found inciting people against the president will be held accountable.

He said, “Leaders should stop inciting people against the security agents of the country and the president as whoever is found wanting will certainly face the full wrath of the law.

“The president is doing his best and there is a need for Nigerians to give him total support; we are not unaware that there are challenges but gradually he will surmount them.”

The governor also cautioned against electoral violence ahead of November 16 gubernatorial election in the state. He urged politicians and their supporters to conduct their campaigns in a peaceful manner adding that whoever engages in electoral violence will face the consequences.

“I am appealing to my teeming supporters that this is a democracy and it has become expedient for politicians to challenge me in an election and that should not be seen as an offense.

“Those challenging me in the forthcoming APC primaries should be given an equal right to contest. As a responsible government, the security of life and property is our priority and we will extend that to all aspirants,” he said.
