Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has advised the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello to bear in mind, the legacy he would leave behind as he won an election for a second term of another four years.
Oshiomhole, who spoke to news men at the presidential Villa, Abuja, after presenting Governor Yahaya Bello to President Muhammadu Buhari today, November 21, as governor-elect said that the victory of Yahaya Bello in Kogi State represents many things for those who truly believe that Nigeria politics should move away from sentiments, to dealing with people for who they are, rather than where they come from.
“So, for us in the APC, we are very proud and we presented him to the president. The president was very proud, of course he congratulated him and was happy to see his certificate and he has encouraged us to recognize that the reward for hard work as they say is more work.
“And I am sure that governor Yahaya Bello, having passed through the learning curve, is going to approach the second term with all the vigor with eye for posterity and legacy marks in the development of Kogi state.
“We as party, appreciate the people of Kogi State for standing by the party and voting for Yahaya Bello and I want to assure them, that like we said during the campaign, governor Yahaya Bello will do everything possible to ensure that as they say, to whom much is given much is expected.
“He will give his all to the people of Kogi State to reciprocate the good will and the confidence that has been reposed on him as result of the election that was conducted last saturday, November 16.”
