Bello Pledges To Unite Kogi
Bello, who is the substituted candidate for the supplementary Governorship election in Kogi State, told newsmen that he would be Governor of the entire State and not for his Ebira speaking tribe of Kogi Central Senatorial District.
“All I can say is that we would do all within our power to ensure that sectional divide does not exist during our own time,” he assured.
On power shift, he said, “I’m of the central Senatorial District extraction and I’m not going to be the Governor for the Central but Governor of Kogi State if elected today. I’m looking forward to developing our state, so if I should make mention of power shift, I will say yes, power has shifted from the older generation to the younger generation.”
He assured of even development in the state, adding that his administration would operate under fairness, equity and justice.
On his plan for reconciliation, he said, “APC is one big family and in a family there is bound to be one misunderstanding or the other. But when I assume the responsibility as governor of the state, I will ensure that all the aggrieved parties are brought together.
“Everybody would air their own grievances, but we will make sure that everybody is carried along. To my other brothers in other political parties, after politics, we have to settle for the business of governance because, in our state, so much needs to be done.
