The Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, is hopeful that his state will overtake Lagos or probably trail it in development.
Bello spoke on Tuesday while leading the state governor-elect, Usman Ododo, on a visit to President Bola Tinubu’s wife, Oluremi.
The governor said he envisions that Kogi state would be like what Tinubu did in Lagos.
He added that overtaking Lagos in the development area was why he was following in Tinubu’s footsteps.
According to Bello, Ododo is a worthy successor.
“Definitely Ododo is my worthy successor that the almighty has given the crown to be the governor as from January 27, 2024.
“In a simple term, what I am envisioning Kogi to be is just like what our president planted in Lagos to what Lagos is today.
“In the next administration and nearest future, I envision Kogi to be trailing behind if not overtaking Lagos in terms of development; that is why we are emulating and following the footsteps of President Tinubu.”
