Bello Supports Election Of New Speaker, Alfa

Yahaya BelloGovernor Yahaya Bello of kogi State has pleaded for understanding in his efforts to remove roundabouts from the state.

Bello, who spoke yesterday when a delegation from the Maigarin Lokoja paid him a courtesy visit over the recent election of the new Speaker, Hon. Imam Alfa, representing Lokoja 1, said the state capital was wearing the status of a Local Government Headquarters as a result of neglect by previous administrations.

The social media has been awashed with speculations that the roundabouts were being demolished to unearth some charms allegedly planted by previous governors.

Denying such allegations, the governor said the demolition was needed to give the state a facelift.

On the emergence of Alfa as the new speaker, the governor said justice would not have been done to have all the heads of the three major arms of government from the central senatorial district, even though destiny had made it so.

Continuing he said he decided to confer with the former speaker, Hon Momojimoh Lawal, on the possible way out. “Please give the speaker and my government the support and prayers that you have always offered,” he pleaded.

Bello, who indicated he was not claiming perfection as that can only be ascribed to God Almighty said his administration would make mistakes, adding “allow us to make our mistakes and correct them and don’t crucify us but I can assure you that at the end of our tenure that we are going to achieve more than what our predecessors have achieved put together.”
