Ododo said his administration  by the grace of God would consolidate on all the initiatives of  Bello in all sectors of the economy.

Ododo, who was represented by the Kogi Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Mr  Wemi Jones, FCIB, said his government would recognise all the people who would  contribute to his emergence as governor.

“I appreciate the Okun race and quite aware that Okun people are brilliant, intelligent and highly educated.

“Okun people are egalitarian in nature and highly principled that can never be taken for granted. I will never take Okun land and the entire Kogi West for granted.

“I am with you in  spirit, soul and body, and I promise to give you 100 per cent of the necessary support that is required from me,” he said.

The APC candidate, therefore, appealed to Okun people to give him their total support, so that  the votes that  would come from Kogi West would be massive, and even surpass Kogi Central votes where he came from.

Jones congratulated the people of Kogi West, particularly Okunland for the arrival of  the Kogi State University,  Kabba.

“I want to assure you like I always do, that the university that God has given to Okunland at this time through Bello is not political but a university that will thrive.”

The commissioner stressed that students would be admitted into the school before the end of September.

He assured that the governor would Matriculate the first set of students into the school before he vacates office for Ododo in January 2024.
