RE: Kogi: Yahaya Bello's Political Appointees Are Illegal—Hon Mathew Ojo

Listen to article

My attention has been drawn to a press release with the above title purportedly attributed to my humble self. In the statement, I was said to have described some actions of the Executive Governor of Kogi State, His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, as "illegal." I, Honourable Mattew Kolawole, representing the great people of Kabba/Bunu Constituency, hereby deny that statement in its entirety

I call on all media organizations, my Honourable Colleagues and all Kogites to ignore the statement.

The Kogi State House of Assembly has resolved to shelf all the differences and challenges it had faced in the past to work together in unison with the Executive and the Judiciary. We are, for the first time, united in purpose behind the New Direction Agenda of Mr. Governor. And, as one of the proponents of peace in my state, I would be the last person to release such a statement capable of hurting the nascent peace we as Kogi State Legislators are currently enjoying.

As a loyal servant of my people, I will always be on the side of unity and progress. I wish to assure the Governor of my unalloyed support of his programmes for our dear state.

Barka Da Sallah!
God bless Kogi State!
God bless Nigeria!
Signed
Hon. Kolawole Mattew
