The Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has called on the people to ignore those threatening violence as they would be neutralised before the election.

The governor made this known on Saturday while campaigning in Kabba, Kogi-West Senatorial district.

“I want to tell you to ignore those who are threatening violence because they will be neutralised way before the election, they will be disappointed, I want to call on the security agencies to rise to the occasion, you have done it before, you can do it again, my people are not ready to give them a chance”, he said.

In his remarks, the Kogi State APC governorship candidate, Usman Ododo, said he was committed to consolidating on the progress and development achieved by Bello.

He noted, “I’m prepared to serve and to open a new page of development in the state. Governor Yahaya Bello has laid a solid foundation for the state and I’m poised to ensure sustainability and consolidation.”

Bello called on the people of Kogi-West to join hands in forming a government that would meet their yearnings and aspirations.

He said, “The achievements of my administration are visible for all to see. This is not the time for us to be complacent. We cannot afford to be in the opposition, not with the many plans President Bola Tinubu’s administration has for Kogi State.

“In the last couple of years, we have built and rebuilt our infrastructure. We have made Kogi money and resources to work for the people. We cannot afford to be dragged back.

“I appeal to the people of Kogi-West to vote for the APC to enable consolidation, and unity amongst our people and to ensure that the coming generation of the people of Kogi-West can be proud of what has been achieved,” the Governor stated.

Highlights of the rally were the receiving of decampees from the PDP and other opposition political parties and the presentation of the flag to the APC governorship candidate.

The campaign team earlier visited the Obaro of Kabba, HRM, Oba Solomon Dele Owoniyi, who assured of the continuous support of traditional rulers for the State Government.
