I’m leaving Kogi in better state – Governor Yahaya Bello

Governor Yahaya Bello, has scored his administration high, saying he will be leaving the state better than he met it as he bagged the  Fellowships Award at the 4th Combined Convocation of Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja.
The governor stated this at the combined convoca­tion for 2013/2014-2022/2023 of the State Polytechnic, Lokoja.

Governor Yahaya Bello, who was the distinguished guest at the occasion, said part of his achievements is evidenced in the repositioning of the State Polytechnic to meet up with 21st century chal­lenges.

“My achievements can be attested where the State Polytechnic was before my assumption of office, where it is now and what we have repositioned for the future.
“We have taken time to look into the education sec­tor of our people. We made education a top priority in our thematic agenda.

“We not only improved the infrastructure and learning in our tertiary in­stitutions, but also expand­ed our educational institu­tion so that our children will not travel far to seek for knowledge within four years of our second term administration.”

Governor Bello appreciated the people of Kogi State for his modest contribution by voting for Alhaji Usman Ahmed Ododo as his suc­cessor, and assured that Ododo would build and take the achievements made by his administration to the next level.
