SENATOR SMART ADEYEMI COMMENDS GOVERNOR YAHAYA ADOZA BELLO ON BEHALF OF KOGI WEST.
In a Press Statement released this morning, Distinguished Senator Smart Adeyemi, the Senator representing the good people of Kogi West, has emphatically stated that Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello’s unprecedented commitment towards a system of fairness, justice and equity in governance of Kogi State has seen Kogi West benefit from both state and federal appointments.
He emphasized that justice, fairness and equity are the major interwoven qualities of a great leader who is absolutely committed to good governance. This explains the unity and peaceful coexistence of the highly diverse state today.
The Senator particularly stated that the appointment of Justice Henry Olusuyi as the Chief Judge of Kogi State is quite significant, so also was that of Justice Bayo Olowosegun, who was recently appointed as the President of Kogi State Customary Court of Appeal.
In addition, he said that the appointment and inauguration of the four new judges into the Kogi State Judiciary is a clear reflection of the Governor’s resolve to give all Kogi indigenes a sense of belonging.
He recalled that recently, Justice Bamidele Rotimi was one of the four Judges newly appointed into the High Court.
In his words, the Senator stated thus, “the appointment of Yusufu Abubakar as Acting Chairman of Kogi State Internal Revenue Service (KGIRS) could not have come at a better time. It is quite reassuring that the Governor considered Kogi West for such a critical position. Also, Professor Olayemi Akinwumi emerged as Vice Chancellor for the Federal University, Lokoja, without any interference from the State government. The Vice Chancellor emerged on the bases of merits and integrity of Professor Akinwumi”.
The Senator finally expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the Governor, noting that the welfare of the people of Kogi West has been prioritized under the leadership of Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello and as such the Governor will continue to enjoy our total support and unwavering loyalty to his course.
