The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), has challenged Yahaya Bello, re-elected governor of Kogi State, on the weight of expectations of the people in the state, saying his children will reap whatever he sows.
The association, in a press statement signed by its National Public Relations Officer, Azeez Adeyemi, said it will not congratulate the governor, noting that it has not passed a vote of confidence on his re-election.
According to the association, residents of the state are highly expectant of what the governor would do in his second term, advising him to change the mind of the people towards him by ensuring good governance.

“But by and large you have gotten into office for the second term and it is not by your doings but, maybe destiny, to this end, it is important that we remind you that the people of Kogi state are highly expectant in this second term of your government.
“Remember that your children will definitely reap the fruit of whatever you sow in this next four years. And also see it important to pay heavy backlogs of salaries of civil servants in the state, and also invest more on human capital.
