Kogi Democratic Group KDG, has commended the United Nations Government decisions to ban Kogi and Bayelsa election riggers from the U.S.,calling for more stringent sanctions on the perpetrators.

A statement issued by Abdul Abdul said it is saddening that under the watch of APC, the Federal government allow elections in Kogi and Bayelsa turned to war front over inordinate ambitions.

The most worrisome, according to the spokesman, is the legitimization of the judical arm of government that is supposed to be the vanguard and protector of our growing and thriving democracy.

Elections in Kogi, Bayelsa witnessed mass killings, murder, maimings, clamp down on citizens rights, falsified results and compromised government apparatuses, yet a winner emerge out of this national and International embarrassment, which is a big threat to Nigeria’s democracy.

The group advised the current leaders in Kogi and Bayelsa who were involved in this unwholesome political abberation to resign from their current positions, so as to protect the prestige of our newly found democracy.

He expressed sadness that the implication of the decision is that Kogi and Bayelsa will no longer be part of any foreign aid to Nigeria, directly or indirectly, describing the situation as the worst thing that had happened to any states in Nigeria.

At home in Kogi, there is ongoing misgovernance and misplaced priorities with salaries of workers and pensioners not being paid as at when due even though in percentages.

‘This is a state that had turned mere projects of a tertiary institution to fanfare amid huge Federal allocations, loans and advances, with no single infrastructure to show, except bogus proposals and empty promises.

He sympathised with the people of Kogi state and urged them to resort to prayers, as nothing good will come out of this present arrangement/leaders in Kogi state.
