As reactions continue to trail the recognition of Kogi State as an oil producing State by the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission, a Chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Senator representing Kogi East Senatorial district, Dr. Alex Usman Kadiri has lampooned the State governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello for taking glory of what he didn’t labour for.

He said the much celebrated Kogi’s oil and gas deposits have been there at Ibaji Local Government Council in Kogi East Senatorial district which scores have been killed and properties worth millions of naira lost in the past due to boundary disputes.

In a statement which he issued and made available to CAPITAL POST in Abuja, he said, Bello was only interested in earning money to spend on sychophants in the villa who praises him to high heavens despite doing nothing.

“The oil had been there in Ibaji local government area and Alade in Idah local government area of Kogi East. The area covered by the RMAFC are in Ibaji where several human beings have been killed and properties destroyed, especially along the boundary between Kogi and Anambra states, during the tenor of Idris Wada as Governor.

“Yahaya Bello has not seen/been/visited the areas nor the whole of Kogi East Senatorial district.

“He is only interested in earning money to spend in the villa, on the sycophantic loud mouth around him, the APC National Secretariat, and the Fani Kayodes of this world.”

Alex Kadiri stated that as a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, he wondered what the party would campaign with, given that Yahaya Bello has failed completely in Kogi State.

He said the last election was won through guns and a compromised security, while expressing concern at the turn of events in Kogi State, he added that efforts to correct mistakes in order to strengthen APC in Kogi under Yahaya Bello has failed.

“The story is a long one. I have shouted, written and petitioned, appeared before 2 Reconciliation Committees set up by the APC National.

“Kogi money had been used to brush aside all our attempts to help APC and Yahaya Bello”, he concluded.
