The governor stated this yesterday at the celebration of Nigeria’s independence, an occasion that attracted a large crowd. Kogi State had at the weekend after 12 years, joined her counterparts in the country to officially celebrate the nation’s independence.
The first time the state celebrated the country’s independence, our reporter reliably gathered, was in 2004 when Alhaji Ibrahim Idris held sway as the governor of the state.
While, addressing thousands of supporters at the Confluence Stadium Lokoja on the occasion, Governor Bello said despite turbulent experiences the country has undergone, Nigeria remains indivisible as a result of resilient spirit of the citizens.
“This past 56 years has been very challenging no doubt, but there have also been years in which the Nigerian spirit have proved how indomitable and resilient we are in keeping the country as one,” the governor said.
The governor who acknowledged that Nigerian was able to be a sovereign nation as a result of the patriotic quest of our past national leaders, charged every Nigerian to support government policies at all levels in order to take the country to an enviable height.
