The secretary of the Implementation Committee of the Project Light Up Kogi East and the state commissioner for Rural Development, Daniel Ejigbo has hailed Governor Yahaya Bello as an “uncommon development czar” for the Governor’s commitment to the ongoing Project Light Up Kogi East.
Mr Ejigbo stated this in Lokoja, Thursday while interacting with newsmen on what he called, “the historic project”, saying the project will “catalyze economic growth and expansion when completed”.
His words: “Governor Yahaya Bello has sparked a revolution in Kogi State. He has further redefined leadership by identifying the needs of the people and meeting them without discrimination.
“Kogi East is the worst hit when it comes to power penetration in the State. We have had Governors in the past from the zone who chose to keep their people in darkness. But today, we have a Governor who has shown he is Governor of all, for all and supported by all.
“From the West where there is a massive Rice Mill built by him to the Central where road projects have been completed and to the East where road projects and water projects have been completed; the Governor has moved to do what others before him failed to do by working to give electricity to the people of Kogi East. His name will be in gold forever”.
The Commissioner thanked the Governor for providing leadership to the Committee; assuring him of the commitment of the Committee to meet his set goals.
He assured the people of Kogi State that the Ministry of Rural Development will soon commence massive rehabilitation of rural roads as well as other projects with direct impact on the rural dwellers.
