Gov Wada returns to office

From EMMANUEL ADEYEMI, Lokoja

As top government functionaries and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stalwarts trooped to the Government House, Lokoja to welcome back the Kogi State Governor, Captain Idris Wada, to office yesterday, he said nothing will deter him from pursuing his transformation agenda to a logical conclusion.

Wada, who expressed satisfaction over the sympathy he received during his recent auto accident, thanked God and concerned Nigerians for the show of love.

His words: “As you are no doubt aware, my convoy was involved in a ghastly accident, probably occasioned by a tyre burst, 12 kilometres to Lokoja on Friday, 28 December, 2012.

“The accident, unfortunately claimed the life of my Aide-De-Camp (ADC), Alhaji Mohammed Idris, whom we shall sorely miss.

“The death of that young, promising and dutiful officer of the Nigeria Police Force is an incredible personal grief and sorrow to me, which I find very difficult to put up with.

“I pray Allah to grant him eternal rest in perfect peace.

“May I seize this opportunity to convey my heartfelt sympathy to his immediate family and colleagues for this exceptional loss.

“My heart goes out to you all and may God console your grieving hearts.

“I assure you that government will take necessary steps to ensure that the services he rendered in which he died actively will not go unnoticed.”

Wada thanked the Federal Government, particularly President Goodluck Jonathan, Dangote Group, corporate organisations, philanthropists and all those who stood by and supported him during his moment of grief.

He assured them and others that his administration had resolved that 2013 would see the visible implementation of his transformation agenda to move Kogi State to where it ought to be.

He said: “My dearly beloved people of Kogi State, in celebrating the New Year, let us all rededicate our efforts in building a strong and united Kogi State, where patriotism supercedes selfish and ethnic interests, where dedication replaces non-chalant attitude and where commitment to the state’s development becomes our pre-occupation.

“With God’s help and determination of every one of us, we are sure to get there.

“I make bold to say that nothing shall deter us from reaching our goal, just as we remain very focused.”
