Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has stated that the #EndSARS nationwide protest was politically motivated.
He stated this while featuring as a guest on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily, monitored by Affairs TV.
Bello noted that the protest were taken over by people who refused to back down, people who kept motivating and sponsoring the youth not to leave the street.
When asked if he was in support of the #EndSARS protest, Yahaya Bello said that he is in one hundred percent in support of the protest but that the protest has been taken over by politicians.
“This is 2023 playing out”, he said.
He advised the youth to return home, noting that their agitation has been heard and SARS has been proscribed.
Speaking on the COVID-19 palliative that were being found in warehouses nationwide, Bello said that it is a ground design to disgrace the government.
“I did not believe in COVID-19”, he added
“When the COVID-19 which is a glorified malaria was imported into the country, I advised, I cautioned, and I warned that accepting the imported alien disease will have huge consequences on the long run but they never listened to the little voice from us. The current protest is one of the consequences of the lockdown during the COVID-19”
