The statement reads apart; "Kogi State is one of, if not the only state sharing border with nine(9) other states of the federation in Nigeria, ordinarily, this is expected to have serious security implications negatively and also pose serious challenges in the health sector, particularly in the face of the ravaging Coronal Virus epidemic all over the globe.
"It is therefore heart warming to note that Kogi State has enjoyed relative peace as well as safety of lives and properties for a long time now.
"Again, despite the numerous states of the Federation that Kogi State shares borders with, some of which have recorded incidents of Coronal Virus infections, thus far, Kogi State has recorded zero on the list of affected states.
"This feats were not just attained accidentally but through diligently mapped out strategies, thorough and dedicated implementation, sincere and committed determination on the side of the people's governor, His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello, despite the very meager financial resources available to the state.
"Therefore, on behalf of Kogi people and Kogi West in particular, the Distinguished Senator Smart Adeyemi wish to commend and congratulate our Governor for leaving no stone upturned in ensuring that our people can sleep with their two eyes closed and their minds rested because they have a governor who stays awake for them to enjoy their good sleep and peace of mind.
"While efforts are globally and nationally on towards finding an effective cure to the ravaging Coronal pandemic, the Distinguished Senator Smart Adeyemi wish to reassure the people's Governor that he identifies and stand with him at all times, particularly in challenging periods like this when Kogi people look up to the Governor for assurance and reassurances that there is no cause for alarm and that hope is in sight.
In his closing remarks, the Senator appreciated the good people of the State for their cooperation, support and understanding under the prevailing circumstances, urging them not to waiver or be shaken in their support, trust and confidence in the capability of the Yahaya Bello's led administration.
