Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello, says re-electing President Buhari for a second term will put an end to the ”nonsense senate president Bukola Saraki and House of Representatives speaker, Yakubu Gowon, do in the National Assembly.”
Bello and Saraki have been accused of frustrating the Buhari-led administration. They have been accused of stopping the reconvening of the National Assembly just to frustrate the Buhari government.
Speaking to his supporters at his residence in GRA, Okene, Kogi over the weekend, Governor Bello said the president would win his reelection and put an end to “the nonsense that Saraki and Dogara are doing”.
“Tijani Damisa, our brother in house of representatives, is among the people looking out for President Muhammadu Buhari… That is why the nonsense that Saraki and Dogara are doing is not successful. I urge you all to vote for him and his colleagues. God willing, Buhari will return in 2019. All the people bearing APC ticket in Kogi, not just Ebira, will win by God’s grace. He is the one who will give us and Buhari power. Not the one that Saraki and Dogara are making it difficult for him in his first term. In the second term, he will do it smoothly… When it is my own time, we will win it very well. We won’t just win it, we will superintend over the next one. But in this era, please, everyone should be patient. Please, don’t ridicule me before the president, because, I know my status there.”
He said he is the first person Buhari reaches out to when he has a personal issue to discuss, boasting that he has a father-to-son relationship with the president.
“When it is time for a personal and sensitive matter to be discussed between father and son, I am the first person he (Buhari) reaches out to,” he said.
