Kogi Assembly passes vote of confidence on Bello amid dissenting views
Governor Yahaya Bello

Kogi State House of Assembly on Wednesday March 14 passed vote of confidence on Governor Yahaya Bello amid conflicting views among members of the House, Fresh Angle International can authoritatively report.

The motion which was sponsored by Hon. Bello Hassan Abdullahi (APC Ajaokuta) reportedly generated heated debate.

Bello in his motion posited that the Governor “has performed excellently well in his two years in office,” saying kudos should be given to the Governor on areas of security, infrastructural development, improved health service, educational development and economic growth of the State.

He prayed that a letter of commendation should be written and delivered to the governor “for a job well done” in the State, urging him to continue his good work undeterred by detractors or obstacles.

Supported by the Deputy Speaker, Hassan Abdullahi (APC Okura State Constituency), the immediate past Speaker of the House, Umar Ahmed Imam (APC Lokoja 1) had a contrary view with the mover of the motion.

The Former Speaker said although he wasn't against the motion, it should have come as a motion of urgent public importance.

 Imam further explained that, passing a vote of confidence on the governor is not ripe.

Supporting his claim, Barrister Oluwatoyin Lawal (PDP Yagba West) drew the attention of the members in House to rule No 44.

Our Kogi State Correspondent reports that other members such as Ahmed Mohammed (APC Ankpa 1), Abdulkareem Kekere (APC Okehi), Idris Ndakwo (APC Lokoja 2), Victor Omofaiye (APC Ijumu), John Abba (APC Ibaji) Moses Ododo (APC Okura) in their various contributions supported the motion, stressing that it will encourage the Governor to do more for the State.
