“Kogi governor spent days as a cab driver for Bello” — Usman Okai



"Kogi governor spent days as a cab driver for Bello" -- Usman Okai

Usman Okai, the 2023 People Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Dekina/Bassa Federal Constituency, has taken aim at Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi State, alleging a misappropriation of taxpayer funds during the governor’s initial 100 days in office.

In a scathing statement, Okai accused Governor Ododo of prioritizing personal allegiances over the welfare of the state’s populace.

“While our schools crumble and our hospitals remain under-equipped, Ododo saw fit to dedicate his time to serving as a personal chauffeur, a luxury reserved for the elite while the masses suffer.”

He criticized the governor’s decision to reportedly spend his early days in office chauffeuring the former Governor of the State, Yahaya Bello, labeling it as an act of sycophancy.

“This is not governance; this is a betrayal of the trust placed in him by the citizens of this state.”

Okai lamented the lack of attention to critical issues such as education, healthcare, and infrastructure, claiming that Governor Ododo’s actions reflected a betrayal of public trust. He argued that while essential services suffered, the governor chose to indulge in luxuries at the expense of taxpayers.

In quote, Usman Okai said;

“Governor Ododo’s 100 days have been marked by a shameful display of self-interest and negligence. We deserve better, and it is up to us to ensure that our voices are heard loud and clear.”

The PDP chieftain condemned what he perceived as a failure of governance, asserting that Governor Ododo’s conduct undermined the hopes of citizens for positive change. He called upon the populace to hold their leaders accountable and demand transparency and accountability in governance.

Okai concluded by urging citizens not to tolerate such misconduct and to remain steadfast in their pursuit of justice and equality. He emphasized the need for collective action in ensuring that elected officials fulfill their obligations to the people.

“It is time for us, the people, to hold our leaders accountable. We must demand better from those who claim to represent us, and we must never waver in our pursuit of justice and equality for all.”
