Distinguished Senator Smart Adeyemi, the Senator representing the good people of Kogi West, wishes to deeply commend the people’s governor, Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello, the Executive Governor of Kogi State, for making the security and welfare of Kogi people a top priority as strongly demonstrated by his appointment of Senior Special Assistants on Security for all the 21 Local Governments in Kogi State yesterday, 12th March, 2020.
According to Section 14(2b) of Nigerian Constitution of 1999, “the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government”, therefore, this singular act of positioning government functionaries at the various Local Governments to coordinate, manage and oversee the security of lives and properties of our people has once again reaffirmed our strong believe in His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello as a people friendly and people oriented governor, it is therefore the joy of Distinguished Senator Smart Adeyemi to strongly identify with the governor on this strong feat.
Again , the Senator wishes to also thank God on behalf of Kogi people, for the uncommon wisdom bestowed on our governor as reflected in the choice of individuals with proven integrity and track records of performance carefully selected to man the position of Chief Security Officers of our various Local Governments. Indeed the Senator has never been in doubt as to the thoroughness of His Excellency, particularly where the security and welfare of the people is involved, he is therefore not disappointed in the choice of individuals so appointed, and this accounted for the reason the Senator has continued to persuade the various groups and interests across Kogi West who were agitating for one reason or another, to exercise patience and confidence in the governor to make the best of choices in the overall interest, as far as the Senator is concerned, his persuasion has been justified and the patience and understanding of Kogi people has been worthwhile.
The Distinguished Senator thanks His Excellency for not disappointing Kogi people.
The Senator wishes to profoundly congratulate all the newly appointed and reappointed SSAs on Security for all the 21 Local Governments Councils, and particularly those from Kogi West, he prays for God’s divine guidance for them all, wishing them a peaceful, safe and crime-free tenure in office, while also admonishing them to do all within their abilities to justify the confidence His Excellency has so much reposed in them. The Distinguished Senator also extend similar wishes to all other beneficiaries of the new appointments.
The Senator wishes to reiterate that his trust and confidence in the person and leadership of Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello remains strong and unwavering, particularly his appreciation of loyalty and strong abilities to merge all diverse interests into a single “people interest ” under a strong and reliable structure which caters for all.
Finally, the Distinguished Senator Smart Adeyemi wishes to reassure the governor that the support and loyalty of the people of Kogi West for him and his government is total, non-negotiable and unconditional.
He also encourages the people of Kogi West to continue to give their unwavering support to Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello and his government, because in him lies the salvation of Kogi West.
