Suspense As Obasanjo, Yahaya Bello Meet in Abuja

by AnaedoOnline

The former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo and Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello met in Abuja on Sunday, where they discussed the rising security challenges in the country.

A statement issued late Sunday night by the governor’s chief press secretary Mohammed Onogwu said the duo met behind closed doors and had a “fruitful discussion” that centered on security.

Mr Onogwu quoted Obasanjo as saying that Kogi is central to the nation’s peace and development.

“Former President Obasanjo noted that the fight against insecurity should have everybody on board, stressing that governors should involve everyone to ensure insecurity is curtailed in Nigeria,” the statement said.


While appreciating the governor for his developmental effort in the state especially in the areas of youth and women inclusion in politics and governance, infrastructure, health, and education, Obasanjo charged Bello to “continue to be an advocate for youth involvement in governance”.

In response, Bello thanked Obasanjo for his statesman’s role, fatherly disposition, and wealth of wisdom which the young leaders are privileged to tap from.

What Obasanjo Said About Nigeria Ahead of Independence

Bello assured Obasanjo that he would not rest in the fight to ensure total safety for his people and would continue to do his best to ensure his electoral promises are fulfilled.

Bello had last week said on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily that he never runs to Abuja in search of solutions to security challenges in Kogi, charging other governors to take the security of their people as their responsibility.  

Words are expressive but actions are cast in stone. Yahaya Bello’s words about the security of his people may find resistance into the ears of many Nigerians who are fully aware of his refusal to test Kogians for covid during the first and second wave of the pandemic. There have been talks about how a lot of deaths in Kogi are a result of this executive negligence.
