Monarchs Seek Buhari’s Support For Bello’s Re-election

Traditional rulers in Kogi State on Wednesday, met President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja and presented the governor, Yahaya Bello for second term and to give the state the post of minister of finance.

The monarchs, led by Attah Igala and President, Kogi State Council of Chiefs, His Royal Majesty, Dr Idakwo Michael Ameh Oboni Il, also demanded for the position of finance minister in the next cabinet.

However, it was the Obaro of Kabba, Oba Solomon Dele-Owoniyi, who spoke with reporters on behalf of the delegation after the meeting rose.

He stated that the chiefs came to express gratitude to Buhari for approving N30.8bn second tranche of bailout to the state to pay salaries.

He also said the delegation came to congratulate the President on his re-election and to canvass support for the state Governor, Mr Yahaya Bello, who is seeking re-election in November.

Dele-Awoniyi said, “We are very happy that Mr President received us very well and the traditional rulers have re-confirmed their support for both the federal and state governments.

“We are happy to announce too, because our governor announced it there, that the last tranche of bailout of about N30.8bn has been approved. So, the issue of salary arrears, allowances and pensions will be put to rest before the election. We are confident that we are going to have a very good deal with this Federal Government. By the grace of God, since we are supporting Mr President, it is natural and normal for him to pay us back in the right coins.

“So, we are happy to announce to our people at home that Mr President has promised to treat us very well. Like the chairman of our traditional council said, we are not comfortable with minister of state; so our status in the federal cabinet must be upgraded to a full-fledged minister and by the grace of God, minister of finance.”
