Governor Yahaya Bello has stated his state is the safest it has ever been.
Bello disclosed this on Friday, at the occasion of Kogi State’s 30 years anniversary.
Bello went on to say that his administration fought like wildcats to ensure Kogi people were safe.
“We fought like wildcats to keep our people safe. Some would say I literally transformed into a White Lion and deployed teeth and fangs to do my sacred duty of protecting Kogi state.”
“In real terms, Kogi is fast becoming the default example of a truly democratised and free state where inclusive leadership and people-based governance models have become central and accessible to all. We understand clearly the demands of public office and have a standing resolve to put the interest of our people first in all we do as a government.”
“My administration took the security, unity, peace and prosperity of our once divided and impoverished people seriously, right from inception.”
“Today, our state is arguably the safest in the entire country, we are rated the second most peaceful and our crime rate is second lowest. We have a hugely diverse population that is nevertheless more united now than at any time in our history.”
