Governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, has accused Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara of frustrating the good plans of President Muhammadu Buhari for Nigerians.
Addressing his supporters at his residence in GRA, Okene in Kogi state, Bello called on all his supporters to re-elect Buhari and all candidates of the All Progressives Congress in the coming elections.
“Please, tell one another that all of Kogi, all of Ebira, are for APC. Anyone that is in the camp of the other, just use it to eat. When it is election time, everyone is APC,” he said.
He said the only way to avoid the ‘nonsense’ Saraki and Dogara are doing is to vote for all APC candidates thereby pushing the trouble makers out.
“Tijani Damisa, our brother in house of representatives, is among the people looking out for President Muhammadu Buhari… That is why the nonsense that Saraki and Dogara are doing is not successful. I urge you all to vote for him and his colleagues.”
“He is the one who will give us and Buhari power. Not the one that Saraki and Dogara are making it difficult for him in his first term. In the second term, he will do it smoothly… When it is my own time, we will win it very well. We won’t just win it, we will superintend over the next one,” Bello said.
He, however, warned them not to desist from brewing trouble with the opposing Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“If you do not do so and do something else, you are the one dividing Ebira. You are the one saying Ebira should not move forward, you are the one saying kidnapping of people in the past, in the time of PDP, should continue. You are the one calling for the return of that time.
“Don’t deviate from the plan because if you do, you are saying our suffering is not enough. I am not saying if you see someone from PDP, you should stone him or mock them in songs.”
The executive and legislature are not having a smooth relationship at the moment, with some of the president’s supporters accusing the leadership of the national assembly of refusing to convene plenary so as to slow down the progress of the current administration.
