The Elders Advisory Council in Kogi State has come to the defense of Governor Yahaya Bello, whom they say has recorded unprecedented feats in the state.
This is in response to a petition written to President Muhammadu Buhari against Bello by Kogi State APC Stakeholders Forum, the council said there is room for improvement.
The stakeholders’ forum led by Alex Kadiri, a former senator, had accused Bello of failing in all “aspects of governance” and advised the president not to support his second term bid.
In a letter dated May 2 and addressed to the president, the elders the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has thrived under Bello.
“Senator Kadiri is a known serial petition writer whom nobody takes seriously anymore,” the letter signed by Ibrahim Ocheje, Gbenga Asagu and Yahaya Karaku read.
“It is vital therefore to make the point at this early stage in our petition that neither he nor any of the faceless ones in his amorphous group possess the credentials to speak on or about Kogi State APC. They are ignorant of everything APC in Kogi state.
“With regards to governance, whilst admitting there are challenges and a constant need for improvement, we insist that the APC administration in Kogi state has met head-on the demands thereof and acquitted itself well-taking cognizance of current realities.
“We do hope that Your Excellency will be with us in August 2019 when we plan to celebrate 28 years of the creation of Kogi State with the commissioning of at least 28 significant projects undertaken by the APC administration of Governor Yahaya Bello in Kogi state.
“Despite the generally difficult operating environment for governments across the country, the Yahaya Bello administration has also recorded feats of performance which are actually unprecedented for Kogi state.”
