The Kogi State Commissioner of Finance, Alhaji Idris Asiwaju-Asiru has assured Okun-Yoruba speaking people of the state government’s commitment to develop the area after years of neglect by previous administrations.

He stated this on Tuesday at Isanlu, the headquarters of Yagba East Local Government, adding that road rehabilitation and provision of water and health facilities are some of the plans in the offing for the Okunland.He said that Governor Yahaya Bello was fully aware of the difficulty being faced by the people to access some social facilities and had decided to intervene by revitalizing some old facilities and provide new ones.

The commissioner who was speaking at a civic reception organised in his honour, described the emergence of Bello as the governor of the state as an answer to sincere prayers of patriotic people of the state.

According to him, Bello is a visionary leader that will make Kogi fulfill her potentials and make Okunland to witness rapid infrastructural development.

“Governor Yahaya Bello is God-sent to wipe our tears in Kogi State. Our years of neglect in Okunland are over,” he said.

He commended the governor for making the state a safe place to live and work for the people, saying that armed robbery and kidnapping had reduced greatly in the last eight months.

He said that the hydra-headed problem of ‘ghost’ workers which had “kept the state in bondage for years has finally been solved with the courage and determination exhibited by Bello and members of his cabinet”.

He appealed to all aggrieved politicians in the area to bury their differences and join hands with the administration to move the state forward.
