Senator Ahmed Ogembe who represented Kogi central senatorial district in the 8th senate has urged the people of Kogi central and Kogi state to keep hope alive in the face of laughable exhibition of ignorance and uncivilized ways of doing things by Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.
He was reacting to allegation linking him to assassination of Mr Yusuf Adabenege (Masquerade Costodian) by some miscreants that were paraded in Okene by the governor himself on Sunday.
The Senator who made the statement in Abuja said he is aware of the absurdity being pulled together by the governor to cause confusion and misinform the public Saying when an opportunist is at the helm of affairs he thinks every other person is a fool.
“An Ebira adage says- When a fool talks he thinks people listening are also fools.
“My word of advice to Yahaya Bello is to devote more time to governance by uplifting the welfare of the people and prompt payment of salaries/pension than engaging in cheap blackmail and frivolous propaganda”. Ogembe stated.
“Nigerians are aware that Governor Yahaya Bello is known to weaponize blackmail to get at his perceived political opponents, He once roped Senator Dino Melaye in a gun running and murder case but the truth came out eventually.
“The same was the fate of Mohamed Audu who was accused of armed robbery but the governor antics also failed. It is therefore not surprising that I am next on their list of blackmail game,” Ogembe said.
Ogembe who said Bello met Ebira land in peace as a governor he’s expected to leave in peace, but with the path he has decided to take, he may end up in shame.
He’s advised to leave Ebira land as he met it, if he can not improve on what he met. He added that he will not dignify the governor with further comments in the meantime.
Senator urged the people of the area to remain united in rejecting any act of divisiveness adding that truth will always prevail no matter how long it takes.
