Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi has bragged that the state “remains the safest state in Nigeria”.
Speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today Wednesday, the governor claimed he made Kogi “the safest in the country” since coming onboard in 2016.
“Nigerians are calling on me, of course, because of my performance in Kogi. The State was largely divided against itself before I came onboard. Decayed in infrastructure, insecurity, and a lot of troubles. Today, reverse is the case.
“If what we have done in Kogi; by uniting the people, fighting insecurity and making Kogi the safest state in Nigeria today, ensuring there is equity, fairness and justice in Kogi. If that is required of me to replicate at the national level, I will be glad,” he said.
