The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Smart Adeyemi has said that his performance in the Red Chamber vindicated Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello.
Adeyemi said these when the Bunu Development Association visited him in Abuja, recently.
The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Aviation, noted that during his campaign to return to the Senate in 2019, governor Bello offered himself as surety for him in Kogi West senatorial district.
The over 30-man delegation were led by the National Chairman, Bunu Development Association, Pastor Johnson Kolawole.
In a two-hour closed door session, they thanked senator Adeyemi for his consistent and unconditional love for the people of Bunu and the “tremendous impact of senator Smart, particularly his efforts towards the reconstruction of Ayetoro Kiri Sukuk Road Section in pulling down the big hill and also the award of contract by the federal government, last year.”
The delegation expressed gratitude to the lawmaker on the several bills initiated by him amongst which are the Kabba Law School Campus, the upgrade of the college of Agriculture to a full fledged University, the upgrade of Medical Centre, Lokoja to Federal Teaching Hospital Lokoja, Federal University of Medicine and Medical Sciences Egbe, National Institute of Fisheries and Aquatic Studies Kotonkarfe, Kogi State, to mention a few.
In his response, Adeyemi reminded the association that “the governor put his integrity on the line” to ensure that he was re-elected, and noted that if his performance has been abysmal, “the Governor would have been held responsible or been accused of imposition.”
Senator Smart, recalled that “Governor Yahaya Bello participated fully and vigorously” in his campaign, and “the singular act of putting his reputation on the line will remain indelible and evergreen.”
