Attention! Gov Yahay Bello

The excitement I saw on the face of Malam Nasiru Ahmad el-Rufai during the commissioning of some projects executed by his administration in Kafanchan, Kaduna and Zaria by President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday and Friday last week prompted some questions.

One, Kaduna is a state that has been in the news for activities of bandits  who terrorise people daily. Many Nigerian politicians would use that as an excuse for non-performance.

But the sad events did not deter the malam, rather it increased his vigour and determination to leave footprints of his tenure.

Juxtaposing Kaduna with my home state of Kogi is a sad reality that I have shied away from for long.  But the braggadocio of my Governor posing as a foster son to President Buhari always gets me confused. When will the son call the father home to assess some of his excellent home works? The government of Alhaji Yahaya Bello is already in its sixth year but not much has been achieved.

As a concerned Kogite, who has been remotely monitoring the activities of the Yahaya Bello-led administration, this is a call on  the governor to re-evaluate himself and wake up to the realities of leadership.

To Governor Yahaya Bello, I pray the much talked about Ganaja Flyover in Lokoja, which the prototype have been deployed as the wallpaper for the state government website, comes to fruition.

Remember, we will ask you why your father in Aso Rock has not come to commission any of your projects.  Maybe there are none to be commissioned. This is a wake up call.
