Bello said, “You are talking about my party being in charge for the past six years, yes, APC has been in charge of Nigeria and the government. We have recorded huge successes in various other areas even including this insecurity; daily bombings are no longer happening.

“And if you talk about this banditry, kidnappings or all of these skirmishes, APC inherited the challenges and we are doing our best to ensure that the challenges are reduced to the barest minimum and that is why I continue to say that the challenges facing this country today, we should take it off partisan politics or political parties and let’s put our hands on deck to solve this problems.

“APC successes today within six years outweigh or outnumber the performance of PDP for the 16 years that they ruled. The statistics are there. If the Honourable Minister of Information (and Culture, Lai Mohammed), is not saying it, very soon, we will remind Nigerians of where APC inherited Nigeria and where we are today, so, we shouldn’t ascribe the issues to political parties.”

He also boasted that the North Central (middle belt) remained the safest place in the country in spite of worsening insecurity in the region especially the recent killing of the Kogi State Pension Board Commissioner, Mr. Solomon Akeweje, by gunmen on Saturday.

“Kogi State is still the safest state in Nigeria today. It doesn’t mean that there are no pockets of issues that we are grappling with. Like I always say, they will come in their numbers but they will never return especially the criminals,” Bello stressed.
