Senator Smart Adeyemi of Kogi West senatorial district has warned members of the All Progressive Congress, APC, to stick with the political structure of governor Yahaya Bello in the senatorial district.
Senator Adeyemi who stated this yesterday while playing host to party stakeholders from the senatorial axis, said there was no basis to challenge the already established structure by the governor, especially in the zone.
Adeyemi said, “There is no need to form any alternative structure as Governor Yahaya Bello’s structure is a structure for all ardent believers in the governor’s “Lets do more Agenda”.
“The governor personally and painstakingly searched for appointees to ensure that only the best hands are brought on board. He has put round pegs in round holes; for the speedy delivery of the “Let’s do more” agenda.
“All the achievements recorded so far couldn’t have been possible but for the determination, zealousness and passion with which the governor handles the state and party affairs.”
Adeyemi also reiterated his total support and loyalty to the governor, “The governor is not only detribalized but also result driven, a man in whose body the blood of Ebira, Igala and Okun (EBIGO) runs.
“I appealed to individuals and groups agitating for positions to thread softly, governor Bello is a leader who can be trusted to ensure all genuine interests are adequately protected.”
The Senator sighted his case as a viable example, “I joined APC without an intended aspiration, after all Local and State government structures have been formed, yet I was supported to fly the Kogi West Senatorial flag of the party. I therefore confidently and wholeheartedly supports all the appointments so far made by His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Bello. I have no reason to form any other alternative structure as GYB structure is my structure and a sure structure for all who believes in the “Let’s do more” agenda.”
Senator Adeyemi however reiterated the need for all intending aspirants in the forthcoming Local Government election to thread softly and embrace the spirit of sportsmanship, stating that he has no adopted or preferred candidates as he will align fully with whatever position the governor takes across Kogi West.
He likewise appealed to all Kogites to continue to give unwavering support to the governor administration, “So that there can be speedy delivery of all the democratic dividends packaged in the new administration.
