Mr. Yahaya Bello, the governor of Kogi state, says he has made so many achievements as a state governor that it will take more than the whole day to mention if he was to list them.
The governor disclosed this to journalists on Wednesday at the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja, where he went to purchase his party nomination forms for the Kogi state November 16 governorship election.
The governor pointed out that those accusing him of non-performance do not know Kogi state.
He said the development the state has witnessed under his administration can be “seen and felt by all”.
“When you talk of anybody accusing me of not delivering on our mandate or dividends of democracy to the people of Kogi state, they are probably those who are living outside Kogi state,” he said.
“If they are actually living in Kogi state, if they cannot see it, they will feel it, because if I start to list all that I have achieved in Kogi state, I do not think 24 hours will be enough for me.
“But I can say it that Kogi state used to be a haven for criminality, kidnapping, armed robbery, thuggery and the rest – these things are becoming things of the past. That is number one.
“Number two, if you talk of infrastructure, it litters everywhere across the three senatorial districts and in weeks ahead, Mr. President will be in Kogi state to commission projects and commission projects and commission projects.
“Again, one other very important achievement is the unity that you see today. The issue of marginalization has become a thing of the past because we are running an all-inclusive government. Any person that is parading that we did nothing, that person is a diaspora person.”
