Just know you were elected to better the lives of your people and not to asslick the governor... All the best, I'm not from the state but I pray for a better kogi state, better Lagos state (state of origin), better southwest and a better Nigeria.

Most of the times, just a rubberstamp Speaker.
Better do the bidding of the State Governor, or be impeached.
What a State , What a country.

If you want to stay long as the speaker, never say no to the governor and always do his bidding even at your own risk. I don't like Yeye Bello but Kogi and APC will have to live with him for the next 4years. He is a jagged bone in their throat they can neither vomit nor swallow, and if they do any how it will cause more havoc than they are trying to avoid. Take it or live it, that is the future.

Hmmmm, so much more from Kogi State...its very appalling that the Yourbas in kogi state have not be given a chance as the governor of the state. I think he was reelected as the speaker just by a way of compensation, cos I don't see anything special in that. Kogi state has three major ethnic group. Which are the Yorubas known as Okun, the Egbiras and the Igalas. But since the creation of the state the Igalas has had the major share of the governorship positions. P.S am from Kogi state

Congratulations to the Speaker. kogi state assembly election was marred with violence and ballot box snatching, so all 25 members are APC. This is what is giving Yahaya Bello courage that he will win. God help us in that state.
