Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has promised that his administration after the completion of his tenure, would leave behind massive development and infrastructural boost that would prove ‘nay-sayers’ wrong.
Bello said politics was over and now fully focused on governance as his administration would seek to consolidate on its first term’s modest achievements.
The governor made this known on Sunday at Christ the King Catholic Church in his country home Okene while attending a special thanksgiving service organised to mark his recent victory at the Supreme Court which affirmed his November last year’s election.
He stated that as a believer, he was in church to appreciate God who had given him victory and given him more years to serve the good people of the state.
He said his administration recognises all religions and would ensure fair and equal treatment to all.
Bello expressed his commitment to ensuring peaceful co-existence in the state calling on all citizens to help the government actualise this lofty desire.
He urged clergymen across the state to join hands in preaching the message of peace to all their followers and to charge their congregants to practice peaceful co-existence with all irrespective of their dispositions.
The priest in his sermon themed “The watchman” lauded the governor’s reverence for God Almighty urging him to remain committed to the good of the people of the state as a faithful and privileged watchman of the state.
He also prayed for wisdom for Governor Bello to effectively steer the wheel of the state towards the desired end.
