The governor made this known after obtaining his nomination form from his party, All Progressives Congress (APC), to run for another term of four years in the Confluence State.
But the APC in Kogi appears to be divided as some party chieftains believe that Bello’s candidature would work against the party at the November 16 governorship election.
A group had on Wednesday protested over the governor’s insistence on seeking reelection, accusing him of non-performance.
“If they are actually living in Kogi state, if they cannot see it, they will feel it, because if I start to list all that I have achieved in Kogi state, I do not think 24 hours will be enough for me. But I can say it that Kogi state used to be a haven for criminality, kidnapping, armed robbery, thuggery and the rest – these things are becoming things of the past. That is number one,” Bello said.
“Number two, if you talk of infrastructure, it litters everywhere across the three Senatorial Districts and in weeks ahead, Mr. President will be in Kogi state to commission projects and commission projects and commission projects. Again, one other very important achievement is the unity that you see today. The issue of marginalization has become a thing of the past because we are running an all-inclusive government. Any person that is parading that we did nothing, that person is a diaspora person.”
