The Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has called on Nigerians to disregard calls for the restructuring of the country, describing such calls as mere political deceit.


The governor made the call in Lokoja, the state capital, during a meeting with leaders of the organised labour, according to a statement on Thursday.

He described those behind the agitation for the nation’s break-up and restructuring of the country as real enemies of the country, stressing that Nigeria “under President Muhammad Buhari is on the path of restoring its lost glory.”

Bello appealed to Nigerians to support the Federal Government in its determination to right the wrongs of the past, noting that the President had since assumption of office made practical efforts to unite every segment of the country.

He said, “Every country has its unique challenges, but is making effort to overcome these challenges collectively irrespective of its cultural, religious or political differences.”

Bello, who is the youngest governor in country, said “Nigeria is a blessed country with the prospect of a great nation” and urged the people to support the government by being patriotic and peaceful.

He noted that his administration had since assumption of office in the state taken bold steps to improve critical infrastructures such as road, rural electrification, water and quality health-care for the people of the state.

Bello said Nigeria would benefit more as a united nation when their people live and work together.

He said he would continue to advocate oneness among the different ethnic groups in the state as exemplified in the governance of the state since assumption and urged the people to watch out for sincere leaders who believe in the unity and oneness of the country and throw their support behind them.

  1. You see why the a gitations will continue? When stupid people occupy office they never thought will come to them. Hello was just trying his hands on politics when locked smiled at him. Does this one also qualify to be called a leader? Chai this country is in serious mess I swear down. This continous denial of the present issues is the bane of the problem in Nigeria. Buhari brought all these calls for restructuring and agitation to what it is today. Buhari dis in a media chat his is government is for the people that voted for him. All heads of the Nigerian security apparatus is occupied by northers and u think people will keep quiet? Pls better tell buhari that his government officials does not refelect the true composition of Nigeria. Look hello don't be deceived there is big problem in the zoo. The earlier you acknowledged it the better for you. Idiot governor.

  3. Gov. Bello, I disagree with you. We the people of Ebira land of Kogi state will benefit greatly in a restructured Nigeria if and only if we know what to advocate for in the process of restructuring Nigeria. When Niger Delta talks about resource control, we the Ebira people should think of the iron ore deposit at Itakpe. Who says that the iron ore must be controlled by the federal government as the exclusive owner of the deposit? Who says that the Ebira people (Kogi central) can not be the owner of the iron ore, produce and sell it, retain 50% of the proceeds for the developement of Ebiraland and contribute 50% to the federal government? If we the Ebira people can come together and think through the economic ideas of the other regions currently calling for restructuring of Nigeria and use them as models to develop our idea for Ebiraland and its mineral resources, it will be better for us than living all we have to be exclusively controlled by the federal government. In the face of uncertainties surrounding fossil fuel (petroleum) all over the world due to advance in technology(Note France has announced that they will ban sales of cars using petrol in 2040), its time we started thinking about what every region or community in Nigeria can produce to be self sufficient instead of sharing oil revenue in Abuja. Majority of northerners including you are opposed to restructuring because of easy money from oil. David Ochu
