Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has welcomed the defection of six legislators of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
This was contained in a statement released by the DG Media and Publicity to Governor Bello, Kingsley Fanwo.
He stated that the defectors must have been attracted by his style of leadership.
“The All Progressives Congress is a revolutionary movement against poverty, underdevelopment and corruption,” the statement said.
“Today in Kogi State, the New Direction administration under the leadership of the Governor, Alh. Yahaya Bello, is working hard to serve the people of the state, defeat poverty and criminality and take the state to the promised land.
“The Governor’s style of leadership must have attracted the legislators who defected to the party. Governor Yahaya Bello will continue to deliver on his promises and continue to strengthen the All Progressives Congress.
“Politics is about the people and development. I am quite sure the constituents of the new defectors must have impressed it on them to join the Governor’s party as the party is becoming the most popular as Kogites experience leadership extraordinaire.
“As the leader of the party in Kogi State, the Governor welcomes them to the APC fold and wishes to assure them that all will be treated equally in the party.
“He also assures those who have not left the party that his government will continue to work with them in the interest of the progress and prosperity of our people”, he said.
