Ahead of the 2023 general elections, the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has directed all elected and appointed officials of the state to be ready to produce results that are enough to equate the salaries and allowances they collect from the state.
The Governor said this at the strategic stakeholders meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State.
The meeting which was well attended by members of the state executive council, special advisers and senior special assistants, Kogi Assembly members, local government Chairmen, and Ward Councilors was the first of its kind in the state in recent time.
Bello identified the existence of the government as a product of the existence of the Party APC and therefore charged State Government officials to stand to the task of delivering to their constituencies during the elections.
His words “you cannot be taking monthly salaries and allowances and still lose your wards. You must work for what you are eating.”
