Opinion: Why Governor Bello Cannot Succeed

66

My name is Samuel Ojo Temibi, I am a patriot of both Kogi state and Nigeria. I am one of Nigerian future leaders.

I am a fanatical believer of Audu/Faleke political doctrine and I will never pray for my state’s governor, Yahaya Bello, to succeed in his administration simply because you can never pray for a thief, who after stealing your properties is still threatening to kill you. Can you pray for such person?

Obviously, it is noted that Audu/Faleke political organisation won the majority votes cast in 2015 Kogi governorship election. Unfortunately, the architect of the success, Prince Abubakar Audu, was struck by death, without notice, which led to confusion in both the state and Nigeria at large.

On this, some people were contemplating that late Audu be replaced by his first son, Mohammed Audu, while some were agitating that the election should be nullified.

At long run, some party elders from the federal government intervened on the matter and this led to the conspiracy that produced Yahaya Bello. At the supplementary polls, Yahaya Bello barely managed to garner 6,000 votes.

The good people of Kogi state cried out for help so that a stranger, who did not earn their votes, will not be imposed on them but unfortunately no one came to our aid.

On the January 27th, Yahaya Bello was sworn in as the first governor without a deputy and as a sitting governor with only 6,000 votes.

To right the wrongs, the deputy governorship candidate of late Prince Abubakar Audu, Hon James Faleke took Yahaya Bello to court challenging his emergence as the legally elected governor of the state. The litigation which lasted for some months later ended in favour of Alhaji Yahaya Bello. Hon. James Faleke was denied of his
victory.

These are the reasons why I will never pray for the governor to succeed in his administration because one cannot be expecting a prayer for someone who collects your salary after you have worked from the first day to the last day of the month and later threatening to kill you upon your right.

All the people supporting him know that his emergence as the state’s governor is despicable but all of them have ate what we called ‘dodo’ that’s why they can’t speak ‘ododo’.

An adage says,  “it is what you work hard for that will last long in your hands”.

Before you puncture your neigbour with a needle why can’t you use it to puncture yourself and see how it pains?
What is happening in Kogi state is more than being a political opponent as no one can be happy unless the victory is accorded to the rightful owner.

I remain an antagonist of Alhaji Yahaya Bello’s government and I will be praying for him to fail so that his political career can be nailed in a coffin.

– Samuel Ojo Temibi is an ambitious young guy who don’t give way for injustice because injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere. Say no to man inhumanity to man.
