On Thursday morning, Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, warmly welcomed Prince Shaibu Audu Abubakar, the ministerial nominee from Kogi State.
During the meeting, Governor Bello acknowledged that Shaibu Audu’s nomination as a minister-designate was a result of his loyalty, patience, and patriotism towards both the state and the nation.
He praised Shaibu Audu for displaying a remarkable quality inherited from his late father, Prince Abubakar Audu, when he accepted the outcome of the APC governorship primary in April and withdrew his case against the candidate in the state’s best interest.
This political understanding, he said, showed that the new minister-designate believed in the will of God regarding leadership.
Governor Bello also highlighted the legacy of Shaibu Audu’s father as a proponent of an indivisible Kogi State, and expressed confidence that Shaibu Audu’s role as minister would further strengthen his father’s reputation
