Senator Dino Melaye has berated Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, for allegedly seeking endorsement from celebrities and sportsmen while his contemporaries are commissioning notable projects in their respective states.
Recall that former Super Eagles captain, Mikel Obi, paid the State governor a visit in Kogi last week where the Stoke City midfielder beseeched Nigerian youths to support Bello’s presidential ambition.
Shortly after his visit, Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho was spotted with Bello in Lokoja, the State capital.
Reacting to the development, Kogi West Senatorial District representative at the 8th National Assembly, Melaye, urged the Governor to imitate his counterparts in other states who usually invite president, governors and other notable men for commissioning of projects they executed.
The former lawmaker made the remark on Saturday in a post on his official Facebook page.
He said, “Oh My State! Oh My Kogi! When other Governors are inviting President, V P, Governors and Eminent personalities to commission projects.
“Yahaya Bello is inviting celebrities and jekinje individuals to endorse him and party. I remain his only capital project in Kogi State. SDM”.
