I came into politics and won election as governor at the first attempt. I don’t know how it happened but God did it. I will not say I’m too kind. No. But I think I help people. At a time, I was just trying to help people and my community, and I was happy doing it. When I help, I’m happier than the person I helped. That has been my lifestyle. I didn’t know people were taking note of all the things I was doing. I was not doing it because I wanted to be a politician or to contest election.
However, a time came when people started coming to me in Abuja to say that I should contest for governor. I said no. I thought they were joking or wanted to get my hard earned money. I told them, if you want me to come into politics, it is a big mistake because I will not spend my hard earned money for politics. But destiny changed things.

There were people who were more educated, experienced and qualified. I came in and, at the first attempt, I won as governor. Many people were surprised that I have actually gone far. All these are God’s making.

Will I tell you also the number of accidents that I have had and l escaped unhurt or how God made me what I am today? It is uncountable. But let me tell you one thing, for all these things, I feel I don’t have what it takes to repay God. So I decided something has to be done to appreciate God. Before I became governor, I was doing my business in Sokoto but I decided to build my first central mosque in Ejule, Kogi State to appreciate God. After that, l built the Idah mosque, then Abejukolo and now the Anyigba mosque which I want to be the best in North-Central; and which, if God helps me, I will complete next year. I am not building only mosque. The church in my local government, I cannot say I built it completely but at least half of the money was provided by me, and in some other places. I enjoy doing anything that is associated with God.
Present situation in Kogi.

It is sad what is happening in Kogi State. It is expected that anybody who is out to serve, should give his best. Service is to the people. It should be what you can give to the people and not what you can get. I’m not claiming to be perfect, but that is what I did while in office.
If you see people showing me love, it’s because of what I did for them when I was in office. This is one of the things that make me happy; to know that where you’ve served before, the people still love you many years after you left office. Sometime when you’re in office, people don’t actually see what you’ve done until you’ve left. I thank God that I came out without blemish. No matter where I go in the state, people show me love. Kogi State is having a lot of problems presently and we pray God will see us through.

Governor Bello’s probe
They are chasing shadow. I don’t know what they want to probe. They have done it, and I believe nothing was found.
I’m challenging them, because they claimed I borrowed money and it was affecting the payment of salary. I’m challenging the governor to tell the world if I borrow one kobo from either international or local banks. I’m telling you with pride today that throughout my eight years in office, I did not borrow a kobo from any bank or organization. I never borrowed and Kogites know that because, during my time, salaries were paid as and when due. I was the first governor in North Central to approve minimum wage, relativity and harmonization. Even pensioners, as soon as workers retired, they got their entitlements.

I don’t know why there should be problem now. I hear the governor is saying no money…that they are servicing the debts my administration owed. It is not true. You cannot be paying debts that I know I did not owe. Despite all they got – Bailout, Paris Refund and allocation. I believe our people deserve better than excuses.
