Let me start by a parable: "The presence of a mighty ocean is not known by the buzzes it produce but the eyed sees it and the uneyed are told".

Since the creation of Kogi state,  the state have sustained some serious leadership injuries and broken bones, those who were entrusted to lead a way to a greater Kogi lacked political and moral know-how and vision, hence,  they were gloomed by their ineptitude and selfishness and were running Kogi as a jungle likening to that of the forest of lions and the antelopes, such that the lion as the king of the jungle feeds on the antelopes and left antelopes in fear and disdained, our past leaders have led us in this manner.

They colonized the people of the state and portray some ethnics/tribes to be sojourners, injustice and inequality took it highest peak, looting of the state treasury was a celebrityship, thuggery enjoyed state sponsorship, contracts were awarded to unqualified contractors and politicians where such contracts were never executed or completed,  insecurity predicated the aftermath of state government fueled crisis especially Kogi central such that people were being killed or kidnapped on daily bases.

Governor Yahaya Bello ascended the leadership throne of the state by January 2016, in his inaugural speech he opinionatedly made it known that his administration will be for justice and fairness, he promised to do things differently, he vowed to reposition the state to better height and envious one. Two years on we can cork his achievements as follow:
