Wada congratulates Bello, condemns worsening living condition


Kogi state

A former Kogi State Governor and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the last governorship election, Idris Wada, has congratulated Governor Yahaya Bello of the All Peoples Congress party (APC) on his return as the Governor of Kogi.
In a statement, he reminded Bello that the indigenes were still under siege and needed to up his ante.
He lamented that a lot of Kogi people were worsening by the day, as evidenced in arrears of salaries, and lack of basic amenities that made life worth living.
According to him, as a result of unpaid monthly salaries to civil servants, some workers died in penury, families got destabilised and many children whose parents were civil servants dropped out of school. 
He alleged that the situation in Kogi was still so bad and evident to all, and pledged to continue doing his lot in helping the ordinary Kogite to have better living standards.
“Nevertheless, the Supreme Court has spoken, and as a democrat, I heartily congratulate Governor Yahaya Bello, and to remind him at this crucial point in Kogi’s history, that this has all been about Kogites, and I shall continue in my quest to ensure a better life for people of the state.
“Despite the controversy that heralded his ascension to power Yahaya Bello in our dear state, many had hoped that he would be the breath of fresh air, which the rancid political environment sorely needed. But Bello’s four years was a disaster, as many groaned in pain and gnashed their teeth.
“As the maxim goes, ‘there is always an end to litigation’ and that holds true for me in my quest to wrench my people of Kogi State from the stranglehold of misrule, maladministration, and misgovernance that had characterised the past four years; however, that effort has come to an end in our quest to reclaim a mandate rightly given to us,” the statement said.
