Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has noted that all those who accused him of not performing well are not resident in the state.
Bello stated that the accusers would be surprised in a few weeks when President Muhammadu Buhari comes to commission some new projects in the state.
Bello spoke yesterday after he collected his nomination form at the APC secretariat.
He said those accusing him of not fulfilling his campaign promises are those who never visit the state.
Bello said his developmental projects were quite visible for the people of the state to see, stressing “my developmental footprints can be felt, seen, touched and smelt by all”.
He said; “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. 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. In weeks ahead, Mr. President will be in Kogi State to 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.”
