The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole said the governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello has performed better in 3 years than the 13 years of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration in the state.
Oshiomhole who stated this on Thursday in Abuja at the party’s national headquarters during a meeting of all aspirants for the Kogi gubernatorial primary and the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Party said Bello has improved security and infrastructures in the state.
“Bello did not only inherited salary from his predecessors which he had defrayed but also inherited burdens of infrastructure, projects approved and money paid but were not executed and the governor is doing all such projects today.
”Even our party’s enemies will agree with us that Yahaya Bello has done well in the area of security. If the people are not secured, no meaningful development can take place.
”I have had three of my relations kidnapped in Kogi State while travelling from Edo to Abuja during the last administration.
”I have people who live in Kogi State and we all know the level of insecurity in that state before, but today you can all agree with me that the current governor has addressed the issue of security in Kogi today”, Oshiomole said.
Oshiomhole stressed that the rots left behind by the 13 years rule of the PDP in Kogi State could not be cleaned off in four years by Bello led APC Government, while urging the people to support the governor for the second term.
The APC chairman said that the meeting was to resolve all grievances that arose from the primary election in Kogi State and to harmonize the party for the 2019 election.
“We have had an extensive conversation as APC family to touch issues that arose from the primaries in Kogi.
”Aspirants have spoken their minds and we have heard them as National Working Committee Of the Party” he said.
