Yahaya Bello: Finally Kogi’s Sun Is Out To Shine By Toyosi Adetayo 

“Governor of the Year 2020” was brazenly inscribed on Yahaya Bello’s Sun Awards certificate. The awards are notable for honouring strong governance and leadership, and have long been a tool to gauge the success of Nigeria’s political office holders.

Like in 2020, the governor has done a commendable job in 2021, striving to strengthen Kogi State’s security while also ensuring the state’s economic viability.

These current realities would have been unthinkable in the past, as Kogi was a center of kidnappings. His audacity and fearless leadership style have guaranteed that he has pulled out all the stops to free the state from the grip of criminals. His “Security Excellence Award”

Despite the struggles that came with the pandemic in 2020, Governor Bello ensured Kogi stayed steady and, through his constructive governance, ensured the state’s domestic debt burden was reduced while he created more opportunities for local investors.

He is never one that’d allow the ordinary citizen to get cheated and proved his stance again when he ordered the Police in Kogi to fish out officers who had riotously beaten an innocent passenger in the state.

To see a political office holder hold forth for the rights of the people is admirable, and at a time when Police brutality is at the centre of most discourse, seeing a governor frown on it gives hope for the future.

“We owe Nigerians a responsibility of protection and security as the centre of the nation,” Kingsley Fanwo, the state’s Commissioner for Information and Communications, said after the government ordered the prosecution of the officers.

Governor Bello has proven himself as a brilliant, brisk leader who is always ready when called. And with him, Kogi’s rainy days are over. The sun is out.
