He called on the people of the state, particularly in Kogi Central where he comes from, to accept the court judgment and remain law abiding.
Governor Bello emphasized that Akpoti-Uduaghan and Abubakar Saddiq who has now lost his seat as the senator representing the zone as well as himself are relations and have no need to quarrel.

The governor appealed to citizens to continue to prepare for the November 11 gubernatorial election in the state, expressing the conference that the All Progressives Congress, APC, would win by a landslide.
