Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State says the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in six years, has outperformed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 16 years in power.

Bello made this known on Tuesday during an interview.

“Largely, APC has performed beyond what PDP has achieved in their 16 years of governance in Nigeria,” Bello spoke from the State Government House in Lokoja.

“APC’s successes today within six years outweigh the successes of 16 years that they ruled. The statistics are there. We will remind Nigerians of where APC inherited Nigeria and where we are today.”

The governor also spoke about the worsening insecurity in the country, calling on all Nigerians to collaborate in tackling the issue rather than politicising the security challenges.

While noting that banditry had been an issue in Nigeria even before the emergence of the APC-led Federal Government, Bello said his party is doing its best in ending the menace of bandits’ activities.

On the security situation in Kogi State, the governor reiterated his administration’s commitment to flushing out criminal elements.

According to him, Kogi remains the safest state in Nigeria, notwithstanding the recent attack that claimed the life of a commissioner and the abduction of a local government area in the north-central state.

He said, “I will reiterate that Kogi State is the safest state in Nigeria today. It doesn’t mean that there are no pockets of issues that we are grappling with.

“Like I always say, they will come in their numbers but they will never return back, especially the criminals. Yes, there are some notorious spots in the state.”
