“The last three and half years has been the worst years in the history of Kogi state. We have never had it this bad. We complained about Prince Abubakar Audu, Alhaji Ibrahim Idris and Captain Idris Wada but our current headmaster, Alhaji Yahaya Bello is out of this world.
“The damage done to all sectors of our economy by the actions and policies of the Yahaya Bello led administration will sink the state if urgent measures are not taken by patriotic citizens of Kogi state.
“The major source of confidence in Yahaya Bello’s camp is its robust capacity for political violence. Influx of illegal arms into the state last three and half years is unprecedented. These arms were deployed during the just concluded general elections in all parts of the state. People were killed, ballots snatched, voters were scared from exercising their franchise.
“Kogi state is sitting on keg of gunpowder with large cache of ammunition in the hands hoodlums.
“To avert a gloomy future, Kogi must elect an intelligent man with sound military background as the next governor of the state. His military experience will come handy in confronting the menace of illegal arms in the state.
“Also, we call on relevant agencies to probe the allegations that Kogi state government gave N15Million each to all the Local Government Administrator to purchase guns and ammunition for last elections.
“Aside insecurity, we need a mature, experienced, intelligent Governor that will restore the glory of the state that has been battered by Yahaya Bello.”
