Alhaji Yahaya Bello
This is to express my sincere gratitude to the good people of Kogi State for their unalloyed support before and after the election that threw me up as the Governor-elect of our dear state.

I am honoured and humbled that you have found me worthy to place your trust in. The support you all gave me was incredible and I will work tirelessly to justify the confidence reposed in me.

I assure you that I am not going to put in the freezer those who worked for this success. Rest assured of my continuing appreciation of your invaluable efforts towards this victory that actually belong to you.

As we move forward to confront the great challenges ahead, I promise that we shall be involved together, as I urge you to relax and be comfortable in the knowledge that you are going to have a listening partner in me.

I also wish to thank my party, APC, for the overwhelming support and guidance I received without measure. Particularly, I shall forever remain grateful to the leadership, especially the President, His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR) for his unflinching support. My gratitude goes to the party chairman, His Excellency Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the party leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for their fatherly intervention and contribution to the fortunes of our great party.

I pray that the Almighty God who alone decides the affairs of men to grant you long lives and prosperity. I shall never disappoint you. I urge you and appeal to all in Kogi State and beyond to join this train in the new direction of towards the Change we desire. Thank you all.

God bless Kogi State.
God bless APC
God bless Nigeria
