Pray for Governor Bello, Aide urges Christian Youth
Christian Youth in Kogi State have been urged to to fervently pray for the continued success of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.
Addressing participants at the Thanksgiving Service organized to mark the 2nd Anniversary of the Governor in Lokoja by the Christian Youth 4 Societal Change, the Director General of Media and Publicity to the Governor, Kingsley Fanwo said Christians owe people in Government a lot of prayers to make them succeed.
According to the Governor’s Aide, it is only God that can support people in power to succeed in addressing the needs of the poor and vulnerable in the society.
“The administration of Alh. Yahaya Bello is rooted in the plan of God to rescue Kogi State from underdevelopment and those who had oppressed the state and stole the resources meant for the betterment of the poor.
“He is a divine Governor who was designed to act against the negative norms and fix our dear State.
“Since his assumption of Office, he has declared war against underdevelopment and retrogression. From Agriculture to infrastructure and healthcare; he has proven his mettle as someone who came to power prepared. Kogi has witnessed tremendous development under his administration.
“The Civil Service Reforms was a masterstroke against the canal that held the state hostage for more than 25 years. Today, we have a civil service that is prepared and better motivated to serve the people.
“The Governor has completed a good number of projects while many others are ongoing. Kogi Rice has seen the light of the day. We are the leading Cashew producer in the country today and we are pushing to also take the lead in Cassava production. Kogi is moving in the right direction.
“We have chosen to focus on the Project New Direction rather than succumb to the antics of detractors who are determined to pull our state down.
“Education has been given a pride of place in the New Direction Administration. The GYB Model Primary Schools will be the best in the country when completed. The administration has also remodeled our higher institutions of learning and repositioned them for better productivity.
“In the area of healthcare delivery, our programs are empowering the poor to access good healthcare”.
Fanwo said Governor Yahaya Bello has succeeded in stabilizing the ship of state and can now make more progress in making Kogi State a better place for all.
He urged Christian Youth in the state to be “shining examples of patriotism and commitment to development and progress”, saying the body should collaborate with Government in fighting societal menace.
“Let me make this clarion call to the Christian Youth here. Join our drive to build a great Kogi State. Join our commitment to make Kogi the jobs center of Nigeria. Shun every tendency to destroy your state. Kogi belongs to you”.
