The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed that Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi, has not done anything in the state to merit any form of commendation.
Kola Ologbondiyan, spokesperson of the party stated this in a statement signed by Richard Ihediwa, assistant director of the publicity department of PDP, and made available to newsmen on Sunday.
Ologbondiyan reportedly stated this during his tour of PDP formations in the state at the weekend.
Ologbondiyan lamented that Bello has “stagnated and turned Kogi into the most backward state in the country, with so much devastation, infrastructural decay poverty and institutionalized hopelessness, adding that he ”has done absolutely nothing to merit any form of commendation.”

The PDP spokesman then advised the governor to “repent and utilize the resources of the people of Kogi state for their benefit.”
“It is indeed pathetic that Yahaya Bello has resorted to fake news in his desperate forum shopping for unmerited approval. The resort to fake news has further exposed his childishness and pathetic desperation to use patriotic Nigerians in his search for undeserved endorsement,” Ologbondiyan said.
“I have but pity for Yahaya Bello, and I advise him to desist from such childishness and irresponsible actions. There is nothing to commend him about. Nothing! He has brought only pain, hardship, and stagnation to Kogi state.
“Repent and utilize the resources of the people of Kogi state for their benefit, including infrastructural recovery as well as paying workers and pensioners whose salaries and entitlements have been wickedly withheld for years.”
