Abuja - The Kogi State Government has set up a committee to look into the allegations of marginalisation that the Okun-speaking people from Kogi West reported.
The State Deputy Governor Yomi Awoniyi has been appointed to head the committee.
This follows a delegation of the Okun Development Association, led by the former Minister of Health, Professor Eyitayo Lambo, and other prominent people from the area, visiting the Governor, Idris Wada, at Government House in Lokoja.
The Governor noted that all segments of the state irrespective of tribe, religion and political differences would be carried along under his administration in terms of distribution of available resources for developmental purposes.
He stressed that his aim is to turn around the living condition of the people of the state for the best and urged the various ethnic groups in the state to join hands with his administration's effort to move the state to where it ought to be faster.
Earlier this week, the Okun people called on Wada to urgently address the marginalization of the zone in appointments into political and administrative positions.
