Lokoja - Former Governor of Kogi State, Idris Wada, has resolved to offer his support to his successor, Yahaya Bello.
In a statement issued by his chief communications manager, Phrank Shaibu on Wednesday, Wada, who lost his appeal at the Supreme Court on Tuesday, said he had resolved to do his best in whatever way possible to offer support to Governor Bello for the uplift of the state.
According to him: “Though the decision of the apex court brings to an end a legal battle he initiated not because he just wanted a second term in office; but to serve as a historic denunciation and a befitting dirge for electoral fraud.

“Without doubt, we shall serve as the polished metal for the compunction of government with the quality of opposition we will provide in the days ahead. It is our prayer that Governor Bello and his aides will appreciate our advice and proposals in the overall interest of the Kogi people.
“Though we expected the noble dispensers of justice at the apex court to have delivered a judgment that will be untainted and uncowed by the threat of immoral power; unfortunately, it was not to be but we are proud to have represented the moral imperative in a polity struggling to retrieve its conscience from the depravity of men who have no honour.”
He said they were proud to have taken the side of honor and stood beside the good people of Kogi State in their struggle to assert the legitimacy and dignity of their vote.
“We give all the glory to the Almighty for giving us the strength and the support of the teeming mass of our people to maintain the legal battle,” he stressed.
Wada, who also thanked other Nigerians for their support, urged all his supporters to accept the judgment in good fate.
