 Kogi is changing from the dark days, i will not give money to politicians - Bello

Kogi Governor, Yahaya Bello has condemned those describing his administration as non-inclusive, saying their criticism stems from his insistence not to share the state’s little resources to few elites.

Bello stated this while fielding questions from State House correspondents after joining President Muhammadu Buhari to perform the weekly Jumat prayers at Presidential Villa Mosque, Abuja on Friday.

According to him, contrary to such insinuations, the resources of the state are being utilised for the general good of the people of the state.

He expressed satisfaction that President Buhari was recuperating very well since he came back from vacation, adding that Nigerians should not relent in their prayers for him.

“We followed Mr President to perform Jumat prayers and we are happy that he is getting stronger and stronger by the day.

“We can only thank Almighty Allah for this wonderful job that he (Buhari) has done for this country.

“I only urge all Nigerians to continue to pray and give him all the necessary support. Nigeria is going to be better,’’ he said.

The governor revealed that the cases of kidnapping and armed robbery, which used to characterise the state, had been brought under control.

He said the state, under his stewardship, had changed drastically as a result of responsible leadership.

” Kogi is changing from the dark days to the present economic prosperity,  we are following our economic blueprint and things are changing, infrastructurally.

“The civil service is being reformed, pension too is being reformed and investors are coming in because we have largely secured the state,” he added.

On the nomination of Steven Ocheni as Minister to represent Kogi in the Federal Executive Council, Bello said the renowned professor would make Nigeria, people of Kogi and President Buhari, proud.

He thanked the President for nominating Ocheni, whom he described as “a versatile and workaholic’’ professor.
