KOGI Govt Sends Strong Messages Ahead Of Guber Election

In the build-up to the November 11 Gubernatorial election in the state, the Kogi State Government on Sunday urged its citizens to be weary of fake and inciting news flying across the state.

The state government made the plea in a statement made available to newsmen by the Commissioner for Information and Communications, Kingsley Fanwo.

The statement reads, “The Kogi State Government wishes to draw the attention of the general public to the antics of mischief makers and ethnic bigots to stoke the flames of ethnic resentment, division and hate by agents of political desperation who are bent on destroying the unity and peace enjoyed by the State.

“Their unintelligent approach has been to push ethnically divisive words and attribute the same to Governor Yahaya Bello in order to incite certain ethnic groups against his person and his administration. These statements are not only false but also an ignominy of dragging our state back to the conquered era of ethnic chauvinism.

“Governor Yahaya Bello through his actions, projects, appointments and unifying leadership credentials, has succeeded in building the state into what politics cannot balkanize. We remain a united and prosperous state.

“We urge members of the public to look out for and ignore those inciting falsehoods as well as report those who circulate them to law enforcement agencies. It is clearly the handiwork of politicians who do not have the interest of the state at heart.

“Until his last day in office, Governor Yahaya Bello will continue to work hard to improve livelihood in the state, keep the people united and continue to serve all Kogites irrespective of their religion, ethnicity and political beliefs. What binds us together is stronger than the desperate wishes of the enemies of the state.
