Distinguished Senator Smart Adeyemi, the Senator representing the good people of Kogi West, today in a Press Statement appreciated the Executive Governor of Kogi State, Alh Yahaya Adoza Bello, on his continued demonstration of the three guiding principles of his new direction administration inclusive of equity, fairness and justice. There is a clear reflection of this in his recent appointment of the new Chief Judge of Kogi State, Honourable Justice H. A. Olusuyi. Also on the appointment of the new President of the Kogi State Customary Court of Appeal, Honourable Justice Bayo Olowosegun, both of Kogi West extraction.
According to the Distinguished Senator, this is unprecedented in the history of Kogi State. Our people are eternally grateful that for once, merit is allowed to supercede all other forms of primordial sentiments which had plagued Kogi State before now.
The Senator, in his words said, “the leaders of Kogi West and myself have not regretted canvassing for the people’s votes and giving our full support to Alh Yahaya Adoza Bello in the last governorship election”. This is in spite of the fact that the main opposition party (the PDP), picked their Deputy Governorship candidate from the district.
The Senator further said, that the Governor’s appointments, as always, has demonstrated that he is to Kogi West, a brother, a friend, and a governor indeed.
He congratulated the newly appointed judicial luminaries on their elevation, employing them to justify their appointments by raising the standard of judicial jurisprudence through their policies and conducts.
Further, the Senator encouraged the people of Kogi West to continue to give their unreserved support to the APC and the government of Alh Yahaya Adoza Bello, emphasizing that we have never had it this good under any previous administration.
Finally, the Senator assured the Yahaya Bello administration of the unconditional loyalty and support of both himself and the good people of Kogi West.
