CATTLE COLONY: KOGI PDP BERATES GOV. BELLO

The People Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman for central district of Ijumu Local Government Area, Pastor Stanley Ajileye, has accused the All Progressive Congress government in the state of gross insensitivity over its hasty decision in accepting Kogi State a test ground for the heavily criticized cattle colony scheme.
Ajileye who spoke with selected newsmen in Lokoja, condemned Governor Yahaya Bello for undermining the  general interest and the security of lives and properties of the people he is meant to protect.
The obviously infuriated man of God said the actions of the governor since he came into office two years ago, have proved a high mark in youthful exuberance. Adding that, one would naturally have expected a man in such an office as a governor to tread more cautiously in relation to matters as volatile as the burning issue of Fulani Militia, especially with the ongoing carnages in places like Benue and Adamawa State.
He said it would have been more appropriate for the state government to first engage stakeholders in simple dialogue that may probably lead to mutual understanding.
The Clergy, who doubles as a front line journalist in the state, confirmed to his colleagues that the state governor is motivated; not only by a desire to please President Muhammadu Buhari, but an inordinate desire for the financial benefit accruable from the Federal Government’s fund disbursement for the cow colony purpose is central to the decision of the APC governor.
“Another reason, we must clear, is that the APC government has an ulterior motive of using the Fulanis for election purposes, since it is apparent to them that they can no longer win election in this state after biting the fingers that once fed them.” He stressed.
Pastor Ajileye lampooned the state's legislators for jettisoning their primary responsibilities in a hot chase of filthy lucre.  According to him, it has never been this bad in the history of Kogi State, for the entire state assembly to be pocketed by the executive arm.
Pastor Ajileye submitted by calling on all Kogians to keep their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) well and use it wisely during the next election, to send APC to where it belongs.
