'EFCC's Allegations Baseless' - Kogi Reacts To Freezing Of State Bank Account

The leadership of student bodies in Kogi have endorsed the sitting governor of the state, Yahaya Bello’s bid for a second term in office.

Naija News understands that the students maintained that the state government has done credibly well and so he needs the opportunity of running the affairs of the state for another four years.

The student group include the Kogi state; National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), National Association of Kogi Students (NAKOSS), Igala Students Association (ISA), National Association of Ebira Students (NAES), and the National Association of Okun Students (NAOS).

The spokesman of the students, Hussein Attaja said that the decision was a fallout of the recent interface by the Conference of All Students Associations where a vote of confidence was passed on the governor.

According to Attaja, Bello remains the best option among those considered because he has shown uncommon love for students and their welfare.

He urged the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to ensure due diligence in the electioneering process preceding the Kogi governorship election.

Attakah said; “The governor has given scholarships to medical students of Kogi University Health College; he has also ensured a conducive environment for academic excellence.

“Bello has also eliminated armed robbery and kidnapping around academic environments, and also reduced cultism in campuses.

“He has also provided skills acquisition platforms and approved 300 per cent increase in Bursary paid to Kogi students in tertiary institutions.”
