Governor Yahaya Bello courtesy call to the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland in Okene

"Every parent knows their children and I implore them to check the excesses of their wards. My parents did not train nor encouraged me in anyway to hold arms. Government will not tolerate the excesses of those who have embraced evil. We need peace to make progress. We need peace to develop as a people. Ebiraland will have peace and move forward. Kogi State will have peace and develop. The peace of the land is a collective responsibility. I enjoin us all to close ranks to curb the menace of crime and all forms of evil in our land."

— Governor Yahaya Bello, during a courtesy call to the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland in Okene
