Buhari’s Return: Kogi declares Monday Public Holiday for Thanksgiving



Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi

Kogi State government has declared August 21 as a public holiday for citizens to thank God for safely returning President Muhammadu Buhari to the country.

The Director-General, media and publicity to the state governor, Kingsley Fanwo, said it was to enable the people to give thanks to God for returning Buhari in sound health and sound mind.

He said that decision was also in line with the support the people of the state had been giving to Buhari in his efforts at correcting the ills of the past and putting the nation on sound economic footing.

“We urge Kogites to also use the occasion of the public holiday to pray for Mr. President as he resumes his responsibilities of repositioning Nigeria,” the statement said.

The statement quoted the state governor, Yahaya Bello as thanking the people for for standing by the President while undergoing treatment in London and for trooping to Abuja to welcome the him.

    And why not? But for the fact that the national purse is centralised to fund such idiocy.

    Idiot governor. ……instead of facing the strange disease killing Kogi people. Maybe that disease should kill you so the citizens of Kogi may have another chance at choosing someone with brain.

    Governor, if you must give thanks unbehalf of Buhari, why not do it over the weekend like Saturday?
    Why do it on a working day?

    Where do they get these leaders in Nigeria from?
    Lord have mercy!

    He is trying too much to impress Buhari not to investigate his unbridled corruption, billion Naira houses have been discovered in Kogi and Abuja that he is building whilst owing state workers 16 months
