Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has said that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has performed better in its six-year rule than the 16 years the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spent in government.
He said this on Tuesday on Sunrise Daily, a Channels TV programme.
Bello added that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration inherited banditry and kidnapping from the previous administration, adding that the insecurity problem predates the formation of the APC.
“Daily bombings are no longer happening, if we are talking of banditry and kidnapping, this predates even the formation of the APC,” he said.
“So the APC inherited a challenge and we are doing our best to ensure the challenges are reduced to the barest minimum.
“Largely, the APC has performed beyond what the PDP has achieved in their 16 years of governance in Nigeria.
“The APC’s successes today within six years outweigh the successes of 16 years that they ruled. The statistics are there. We will remind Nigerians of where the APC inherited Nigeria and where we are today.”

Bello also said Buhari loves and prioritises the youths of the country, adding that it is evident in his assent to the not-too-young-to-run bill, which reduced the prerequisite age for elective positions into house of assembly and house of representatives from 30 years to 25 years; senate and governorship from 35 years to 30 years, and office of the president from 40 years to 35 years.
