APPRECIATION MESSAGE BY THE IMMEDIATE PAST SPEAKER OF KOGI STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY, RT HON (PRINCE) OLUSHOLA MATTHEW KOLAWOLE
My dear people of Kabba/Bunu State Constituency,
Congratulations to all of us on the completion of our tenure as the member representing Kabba/Bunu State Constituency at Kogi State House of Assembly between 2015 – 2023
As a people, we commenced this journey with faith, love, and harmony. We started as a zealous acquaintance who was starving, and whose only feed became good governance and to God be the glory I was elected the Majority Leader despite I was a first timer then.
You found me worthy of your trust and votes. As a people, you singlehandedly voted for me in two political cycles to serve you, the good people of Kabba/Bunu State Constituency.
No doubt there were challenges, obstacles we never envisaged, obstructions we never felt its presence even though they were too close. With divine help, synergy and absolute cordiality, we stumbled on these problems and we conquered them, to the glory of God.
As a legislator and one whom you have trusted over time, we did our best to never let you down. This you have seen via our life changing policies and activities. The confidence you reposed in us to succeed was however justified.
Now we have a relationship that has grown beyond leadership/followership relationship. We have strengthened the ties of kingship to the level that brotherhood has been instituted. We can only nurture it collectively. May it live to perish never.
I will be here to root for your success. You are also deserving of the privilege you gave me in 8years. When it is your turn to serve our people, I shall support you without mincing actions.
My family and I are forever grateful to you. You shall also be celebrated.
Finally, I sincerely thank Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, top government functionaries in Kabba/Bunu, the traditional rulers, well meaning individuals and the people of Kabba and Bunu for being there for us throughout our stay in office.
Thank you and God bless you.
Rt Hon (Prince) Olushola Matthew Kolawole,
Kogi State House of Assembly.
