Kogi State Marks 32nd Anniversary 

Alhaji Yahaya Bello

Alhaji Yahaya Bello, the governor of Kogi State, has said that the achievements of his predecessors has placed the land and its people on the path to greatness and had begun “marching” them in the direction of the brighter future that the people hoped for.
The governor said the historic event remained a day of commemoration and recommitment to ensuring the state took its pride of position in the country in his address to mark the 32nd Anniversary of the formation of the state on Sunday at Lokoja.
He said his administration had committed to the new direction blueprint, which he claimed to be the major driver of his actions and decisions for the past almost eight years in office.
“This policy plan has served us well as our guiding light, leading us towards the accelerated and proportional development we envisaged from inception across all constituencies in our state.
“In education, health, infrastructure, youth empowerment, civil service reform, security, agriculture, and more, we have taken remarkable strides that are both visible and impactful today – even to the worst naysayer or skeptic,” he said.
A right activist and Executive Director, Conscience for Human Rights and Conflict Resolution (CHRCR), Idris Miliki Abdul, said subsequent administrations failed to focus on infrastructural development to raise the standard of living of the people since its creation.
However, a frontline lawyer, Jibrin S. Kutepa (SAN) has described 32 years of Kogi State as growth without commeasurable achievements.
The erudite lawyer disclosed this on Sunday in a statement to newsmen in Lokoja as the state clocks 32 years of its creation.
He said the state is one of the most backward in terms of physical and human capital development, despite being endowed with some of the best human and natural resources.
