Governor of Kogi State, Yahya Bello, made the statement via his director-general on Media and Publicity, Kingsley Fanwo, today.

According to the 41-year-old who spoke in the wake of protests against Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari on Monday,
"Nigeria has won international respect because of the integrity of Mr. President. The effect of such goodwill is improved global interest in the development of Nigeria. Those working against the President are people who are jittery over his anti-corruption crusade.

"The people of Nigeria are solidly behind the President because they have been at the receiving end of the corrupt past. Nigeria will bounce out of the current recession as we are already witnessing signs of survival.

"Kogi is leading the way towards agricultural renaissance and the Kampe Omi Dam Irrigation Farming will be one of the drivers that will rebound our economy as we are poised to become the food basket of the nation.

"Those peddling rumours about the health of Mr. President are unfair to the African culture. The President explicitly told the whole world he went on medical vacation. We are all humans and are vulnerable to ill-health. The President will soon come back stronger and ready to continue his developmental strides for the nation.

"As a Nigerian, I am proud of Mr. President’s exploits in the areas of enthroning trust and stability in our polity. The Conditional Cash Transfer initiative and N-Power have helped to empower our youth and women. I am confident Nigerians will appreciate what this government will do in the next three years."
