Kogi Guber: Why I Must Probe Gov. Yahaya Bello – PDP Candidate, Wada Blows Hot

Published

on

Musa Wada, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in Kogi State, has vowed to probe the four years administration of the state Governor, Yahaya Bello if elected on November 16.

Addressing party members in Lokoja, the state capital, Wada explained that Bello’s administration would be probed if elected due to sharp practices allegedly recorded.

He insisted that the fear of being probed was responsible for Bello’s desperation to retain power.

Wada urged people of the state to vote out the current leadership who never meant well for them but was using the All Progressives Congress, APC to defraud the people.

He said: “What is bad is bad, as the pretence of paying salaries to cleared staff of the government, leaving those owed for over 40 months as part of the election fever that has confronted the present administration. The worst will happen when re-elected.

“As far as I am concerned, I will probe the four years administration of Governor Yahaya Bello and his cohorts, as I will be determined to unravel many sharp practices of the present administration.

“Kogi State Government has been going round to cajole the labour leaders into unholy agreement to support their cause to return to Lugard House. The issue is beyond the leaders in the current order.

“There will be no Otukpa or Onyagede Accord, and agreement between the labour and the state government, or rather any political bigwig, as we will collectively resolve to install a new government.

“Gone are the days when politicians will be dragged to neighbouring states of Benue, Enugu, Kwara, Ondo and Edo to negotiate the fate of Kogites, as enough is now enough.

“Gone are the days when projects will be inaugurated and not completed, or haphazard virements, all in the name of diversion. We must tidy up our records for public scrutiny.”

The Deputy Governorship candidate said voters were eager to return Bello to office.

According to him, Kogi residents will return Bello as their Governor because they want him to consolidate on his achievements.

”You can see the enthusiasm of the voters who want to usher in a government that will continue to consolidate on its gains in service delivery.

”God brought a divine leader who in spite of coming from another senatorial district saw the need to meet the infrastructural gap in the Eastern district that has always produced the governor of the state.

”Because of this, our people who are people of gratitude appreciate that gesture and then made up their mind to repay good for good.

”I think today at the end of the day, we will all be happy,” Onoja said.

About 250 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Social Democratic Party (SDP), on Friday, defected to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in Iragbiji community of Boripe local government area of Osun State.

The defectors who were led by Alhaji Folorunso Akinola of the Peoples Democratic Party and Mr Oni-Osun Adewale of the Social Democratic Party respectively were received by both Governor Gboyega Oyetola and the state chairman of the APC, Prince Gboyega Famodun, and other members of the party’s state executives.

Addressing the crowd in front of the Aragbiji’s palace, Akinola said their decision to leave their former parties for APC was informed by the pro-masses policies and programmes of the government in the state.

He said he and other members of the opposition in Boripe local government had seen the need to join hands with the administration of Oyetola to move the Osun forward.

Akinola stated, “it is now for Iragbiji and the entire local government and state to go back to the good old days because the All Progressives Congress is the vehicle of development that God has given to us to advance our state.”
