Kogi State Commissioner for Information and Communications, Hon. Kingsley Fanwo has applauded his boss, Alhaji Yahaya Bello for undertaking the construction of the 56 km Anyigba-Ejule-ldah road.
Fanwo who made a stop-over on his way to Idah for the Idah federal constituency town hall meeting, described the project as huge and a confirmation that the Governor is truly a father figure.
Describing the project as one of the legacy projects of the administration of Governor Bello administration, the commissioner said the project would impact on the socio-economic lives of the people.
He added that the project would go a long way to reduce man-hour loss and road accidents.
According to Fanwo, the Governor since assuming office in 2016, has demonstrated that the whole of the state is his constituency and refused to tow the path of past leaders of the state, who caved in to ethnic sentiments and by so doing, could not ensure even spread of development projects.
He reiterated that Governor Bello has made impressive marks in all sectors and importantly, he has resisted the temptation of being an ethnic chauvinist and a religious bigot, ensuring that equity, justice and fairness remain his guiding principles.
Some stakeholders who spoke on the project, said what the Governor did for Igalaland, even their sons who had been Governors in the past, cannot match the feats of Governor Bello.
They maintained that the Governor has so far demonstrated uncommon leadership qualities that was alien to the state.
A visit to the Zonal Hospital in Idah also confirmed that massive facelift is going on at the health facility.
