It was a beehive in Kabba, the headquarters of western senatorial district, Kogi state, as it played host to the governor of the state, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.
The governor who was in the town to receive over 1,700 decampees from different parties, was welcomed by a crowd large enough to prove the district’s support for him.
Speaking at the event, the speaker of kogi state house of assembly, Honourable Matthew Kolawole, extolled the sterling leadership of Yahaya Bello, and urged the aggrieved members of the party to join the moving train for the betterment of the state.
Also speaking, the immediate past senator representing western senatorial district, senator Smart Adeyemi, said. “We are here to rally round the president, Muhammudu Buhari and the governor of Kogi state, Alhaji Yahaya Bello. It is a new ball game, Mr. Governor, you have executed your activities with justice and fairness, and had ensured that everybody is carried along, giving kogi west, especially, a sense of belonging.”
He added that governor Yahaya Bello has sanitized the system, noting that the issue of non payment of salary will soon be a thing of the past.
The hallmark of his speech was the presentation of the president, Muhammudu Buhari and the governor, Yahaya Bello to the people, and they were unanimously endorsed for 2019 by Kogi central senatorial district’s people present.
The governor, Yahaya Bello, appreciated the people of western senatorial district for their unwavering support and endorsement of the president, Muhammudu Buhari.
The governor reminded the cheering crowd that his coming to office was divine and he has come to sanitize the system.
The decampees were later called out for the governor to ‘baptism’ them.
The leader of the decampees said they had to jettison their former parties because of the exemplary leadership of Yahaya Bello.
