Moment Governor Bello Surprises Predecessor with Multi-million Naira SUV

Yahaya Bello, Idris Wada

As Governor Yahaya Bello winds down his 2nd term in office with barely a week to go, he has displayed a spirit of sportsmanship with his predecessor and opposition leader in the state, former Governor Idris Wada by gifting him a brand new Sport Utility Vehicle.

Governor Bello on Saturday played host to his predecessor who was at his Abuja home to bid him well in his future endeavours as he leaves office.

The meeting which had the Governor-elect, Ahmed Usman Ododo in attendance, had a surprising twist with the parting of gift.

The former Governor noted the aim of his visit was to appreciate Bello for his notable achievements in the state, especially in the areas of security, healthcare, education and infrastructure.

He said Governor Bello has had a sterling run since he handed over to him in 2016, hence the need to convey his best wishes in his future endeavour.

He also pledged his full support for the incoming administration in the state.

Governor Bello, on his part, described his predecessor as an exemplary leader and a statesman of progressive qualities.

He acknowledged the challenges the former governor faced during his tenure and commended the diligent efforts made within the constraints of available resources, particularly given the unique political challenges of Kogi State.

“Sir, I feel deeply honoured to host you in my house, and I want to express my gratitude for all you have done, both within and outside your time in office as governor. Those of us following your footsteps are proud of your statesmanship and exemplary leadership. Your humility, fear of God and progressive qualities are virtues everyone speaks of.

“I pray that God continues to guide and protect you with good health. As you are aware, I will be handing over to the Governor-elect, Ahmed Usman Ododo, and the transition event is scheduled for next week Saturday. Ododo will need our support to succeed for the overall interest of the state. I want to thank you for this honour sir,” the Governor stated. learnt the SUV is a 2022 Toyota LC 300 GXR 3.3L.
