The people of the state have been enjoined to keep faith with the present
administration in its effort to ensure their wellbeing. The Deputy
Governor of the state, Elder Simon Achuba, made the remark when he led
fellow pilgrims from the state to the Mountain of Transfiguration as part
of their activities in the Holy Land.

Elder Achuba said just as the miracle of the Transfiguration happened after
intensive prayers from Jesus Christ, so also will the fortunes of Kogi
State turn around after the painstaking process of getting rid of ghost
workers from government payroll.

According to him, Kogi state will soon witness a turnaround in all sectors
of the state as government, under the leadership of Governor Yahaya Bello,
is working round the clock to ensure the growth and development of the
state. The Deputy Governor assured that once the civil service is free of
ghost workers, salary will become consistent and regular as at when due.

He noted that government is also perfecting plans to simulate other sectors
of the state economy. Elder Achuba expressed appreciation to the people of
the state for their patience and support to the administration under the
leadership of Alhaji Bello and urged them to maintain the tempo.

He expressed optimism that abundance will soon follow the economic hardship
faced by Nigerians. Prayers were offered by the pilgrims for the nation,
the Governor and members of his cabinet.
