Addressing members of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Adavi local government area during a sallah get-together organized by the Council Administrator, Alhaji Ajoge Abu Enesi, the administrator averred that governor Yahaya Bello has done a lot in the area of security which requires the people to contribute their quota in order to nurture and sustain the feat.
Enesi, who pointed out that in the recent past before the present administration came on board, kidnapping, armed robbery and other criminal activities had almost taken over the state, noted that the proactive measure employed by Governor Bello is gradually ridding the state of such vices.
According to him “In the past nobody can organize an occasion either naming ceremony or wedding in the central senatorial district without seeking permission from the so called area boys and even give them money to avoid them disrupting the ceremony.
“But today nothing of such can happen in the district. Kidnapping and armed robbery became a daily affairs and no body can challenge them. Okene-Lokoja road also became armed robbers den, they robbed freely go on break and return to unleashed terror on travellers, today there are no more cases of armed robbery in any parts of the state.
“People can now sleep with their two eyes closed without fear of being attacked or sporadic gun shut by hoodlums and to continue enjoying this feat we have to contribute our quota by giving useful information to the security agents and be security conscious at all time”
While advising his fellow council’s administrators to diversify their sources of income in order to improve on their internally generated revenue, Honourable Enesi disclosed that his local government has put in motion the establishment of farm centre and revitalization of the abandoned garri processing factories at Nagazi in Adavi to create jobs for the youth as well as generating more revenue for the council.
In his goodwill message, the Special Adviser to Kogi state governor on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Arch. Abdulmumuni Okara charged local government administrators in the state to be transparent and accountable in all their activities so as to record achievements for the people of the grassroot.
