A mammoth crowd of supporters thronged the Kabba township stadium in Kabba to receive Governor Yahaya Bello and his running mate, Chief Edward David Onoja’s campaign train on Tuesday.
The Governor, while addressing the gargantuan crowd, said that his visit was not only to seek for re-election, but to also commend the people for their tireless support to his administration.
“I am in Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency, not to tell the people what we are doing to develop the state, but to remind them of the need to perform their civic responsibilities by voting for the All Progressives Congress APC.
“This is because I believe they are aware of what we are doing,” he said.
He commended the people for welcoming him all the way from the Obajana and assured them of his determination to move the state to the next level.
While on the campaign tour, the Governor also paid a courtesy visit to the Obaro of Kabba, Oba Solomon Dele Owoniyi.
The Obaro commended Governor Yahaya Bello for initiating programmes to alleviate poverty in the state.
“Programmes like the youths, women and traders empowerment where small traders across the state are given N5,000 each, can go a long way in boosting the state’s economy,” he said.
