The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has insisted that the performance of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State in three and half years is higher than that of all the past 13 years of PDP administrations in the state.
Oshiomhole stated this at the party’s headquarters in Abuja during a meeting of the National Working Committee of the party with the governorship aspirants in the state, on Thursday, 5th September 2019.
The APC National Chairman 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.
“You will score the current governor higher if we must tell ourselves the truth,” Oshiomhole said.
“Bello did not only inherit salary arrears 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 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.
“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.
”I am glad to let you know that all our aspirants including those that were disqualified and those that contested and lost, have agreed to work with Governor Yahaya Bello, who is the APC flag bearer.”
