At the inception of the Yahaya Bello Government, I was a strong enthusiast of his administration. I was very optimistic that having a youth at the helm of affairs of the State will serve as a paradigm shift in not only changing the narratives but also bringing the dividends of democracy to the people. I supported him not minding his political affiliation. As of today, I feel great shame for ever publicly supporting a roguish personality as YB, as he has done exceedingly worse than his predecessors.
In his four years administration, Kogi till date has not witnessed any form of DEVE not to talk of LOPMENT. Kogi today has one of the worst Roads you can ever think of, the Educational Sector is nothing to write home about, the Health Sector is in an abysmal state. He has not only introduced thuggery into the Kogi Political Space, he has also served as a Machinery to rig elections in different States e.g Ekiti and Osun States respectively.
In my honest opinion, it will be stupidity for right thinking Kogites especially the Youths to cast their votes for a man who has given a bad name to the Youths. YB has become a bad example for progressive minded persons like me to reference to. Voting Yahaya Bello for a second term will be equivalent to SUICIDE.
Just like we have witnessed with our cow controlled ‘Prezziident’, returning YB to power will result to another four years of wanton hunger and lack, acute poverty and unemployment, colossal insecurity and the continuous propagation of under-development. YB has no innovative capability or the know-how to transform Kogi, and even if he is given the next fifty years to rule, Kogi will still remain in its mess and even become worse off.
To this end, dear Kogites, do not be ensnared by the N2,000 or N3,000 that will be offered to you by YB and his cohorts on election day, vote for the Umbrella, because “Only the UMBRELLA can protect you from the perils of the BROOM”
