The governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello, has been pictured driving himself and his Chief of Staff to work and some people are not keeping quiet over it.
Yahaya Bello who made history when he became the youngest man to ever emerge Governor in Nigeria at the age of 40, was seen driving himself to work prompting some Nigerians to shower praises on him for his “act of humility”.
Others however think it is not such a big deal for a serving governor to steer his own steering wheel in public.
The photos were shared by Petra Akinti Onyegbule, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor, and like some Nigerians, she believes it is a pretty big deal, what the Governor has done.
See what she wrote below:
“When Obama carries his bag, we oooh and aaaah over photos of him doing so. We say in our clime, an “ordinary councillor” doesn’t. That elected officials in Nigeria hardly do anything themselves. But then, I saw my Governor drive himself and his chief of staff and thought “aha!
“The existing narrative is not true.” Our Governor certainly doesn’t have the master mentality. He sees himself as a leader, into whose hands power has been entrusted to better the collective lives of Kogites. Governor Yahaya Bello is a special breed. Some of us know this already. With time, y’all will see this is no packaging. And that he’s the real deal! Erm, bad belle people won’t be able to resist asking “what’s the big deal?” grin emoticon You sure it isn’t?”
