Kogi governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has charged the newly inaugurated members of the state's 7th Assembly to ensure that their constituency feel their impact by facilitating developmental projects which would benefit the people's interest.
The governor gave the advice on Thursday June 6 at the chamber of the Kogi state House of Assembly, during the dissolution of the 6th and the inauguration of the 7th legislative Assemblies.
He also stated that all the newly inaugurated members must compulsorily open their constituency office which should be accessible to their constituents to easily reach them.
The governor mentioned that such platform would allow the members to have the ears of their constituency members and adequately convey the policies and programs of the government to the people.
He noted that the people have conferred on the newly elected legislative members the right to represent their interest and as such, they deserve the best representation.
While thanking the people who have expressed their support for his government and the All Progressive Congress (APC) by voting overwhelmingly for the party in the last election, he affirmed that they would not be disappointed.
Governor Bello revealed that their very loud statement made during the election, has further helped to unite the people of the state, who he said have expressed their continued trust in his administration.
He noted that history was made by the party in the last election because the people made their voices clearly stated and as such has made the day’s event quiet historic.
The governor also used the medium to thank members of the 6th Assembly for their regular cooperation with the executive arm, saying it allowed his government achieve great feats.
He similarly expressed confidence in the 7th Assembly, stating that he was sure of a smooth working relationship that would foster progress in the state.
Meanwhile, Kogi students in various higher institutions in the state and across the federation, have pledged to support the second term bid of Governor Bello.
The joint leaderships of the students' associations made the pledge at a joint press conference on Thursday, May 30 at Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja.
The students' associations include: Kogi state chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), the National Association of Kogi State Students (NAKOSS), Igala Students Association (ISA), National Association of Ebira Students (NAES), and the National Association of Okun Students (NAOS) among others.
