The Forum in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by its President General Idako Ochimana Abayoi described the accusations against wife of the President as selfish blackmail which seeks to discredit success and excellence.
” Today the people of Kogi have decided to put an end to distraction of government laced with intimidation aimed at making mockery of a peoples mandate well deserved.
This is why we of the Kogi Good Governance Forum, a have decided to call condemnation on all detractors of the state and its government in the light of accusations by nay sayers claiming interference by the Wife of the President in the ongoing Kogi state Governorship Electoral Tribunal”, the group said.
It affirmed that the decision of people of the state to vote Governor Bello into power was without coercion even as it also congratulated the Governor on his upheld election which they described as heaven ordained.
“The judgement of the Tribunal which is representative of the change today witnessed across the nation courtesy of the new administration of fairness and equity, is not a victory to the Kogi people but also to democracy and proof that the Nigerian Judiciary is truly maturing”. It said
