The Kogi State governor disclosed this on Tuesday while featuring on Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’ programme.
According to him, “You are talking about my party being in charge for the past six years, yes, APC has been in charge of Nigeria and the government. We have recorded huge successes in various other areas even including this insecurity; daily bombings are no longer happening.”
He stated that, “And if you talk about this banditry, kidnappings or all of these skirmishes, APC inherited the challenges and we are doing our best to ensure that the challenges are reduced to the barest minimum and that is why I continue to say that the challenges facing this country today, we should take it off partisan politics or political parties and let’s put our hands on deck to solve this problems.”
Governor Bello asserted that, “Kogi State is still the safest state in Nigeria today. It doesn’t mean that there are no pockets of issues that we are grappling with. Like I always say, they will come in their numbers but they will never return, especially the criminals.”
This is coming after the Kogi State Pension Board Commissioner, Solomon Akeweje, was shot dead last Saturday by gunmen.
