Gov. Bello’s Victory: A Total Emancipation Of The Neglected Minority Tribes In Kogi State – Omoluabi
The leader of the G16, a forum of the Senatorial Candidates of sixteen political parties that withdrew their ambition for the re-election of Governor Yahaya Bello and his running mate Chief Edward David Onoja and Senator Smart Adeyemi for Senate, Omoluabi Bode Adeyemi says the landslide victory of Governor Yahaya Bello and his running mate Chief Edward David Onoja represents the emancipation of the neglected and unrecognised minority ethnic nationalities in Kogi state. The statement was made immediately the Independent National Electoral Commission announced Governor Yahaya Bello as the winner of the November 16th Gubernatorial election and Senatorial election.
Omoluabi says that the state has been under the perpetual rulership of one ethnic group since the creation of the state, he says this has generated untold ethnic animosity and suspicion that has lingered for 28 years. He says the assumption of office by Governor Yahaya Bello signalled the opportunity of a minority tribe to rule in substantive capacity, he says the popular re-election of Governor Yahaya Bello on 16th of November clearly brings the total emancipation of the minority ethnic groups. He says Governor Yahaya Bello is a child of destiny whose emancipation has enthroned equality and equity.
I have been around the political exercise of Kogi for almost two decades and I can say authoritatively that no election has brought unity, equity and ethnic inclusiveness for the people of Kogi State more than the November 16th election. The emergence of Governor Yahaya Bello and his running mate Chief Edward David Onoja is clearly a departure from the past and arrival of a Kogi without tribal bias or ethnic proclivity. Kogi of today can therefore be called a state united in governance Omoluabi says
The statement therefore salute the pragmatism and steadfastness of the New direction government. Omoluabi Bode Adeyemi assured the people of improved welfare, infrastructural development and general development of the people.
The group also commend the Kogi East new direction members under the leadership of His Excellency, Chief Edward David Onoja CIK, for his outstanding leadership, commitment to a United Kogi State and his rare qualities that gave confidence in the Igala people which resulted into this victory.
I congratulate the people of Kogi Central for their unflinching support, loyalty and unity which created the base for minority emancipation.
I commend the people of Kogi West for believing in the project of rotational leadership which brings government closer to every ethnic groups.
