Reactions As Sen Isah Jibrin Kneels Down For Gov Yahaya Bello Over Shaibu Abubakar (Video)
Nigerians have reacted after Senator Isah Jibrin Echocho, representing Kogi East Senatorial district in the 10th national assembly was seen kneeling completely for Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello.
In a video that emerged online on Thursday, August 3, 2023, Isah Jibrin, senator representing Kogi east, was seen kneeling down to appreciate Yahaya Bello, governor of the state, for nominating Shaibu Abubakar-Audu, son of the late Abubakar Audu for a ministerial position.
In the video, Bello could be heard telling the lawmaker that the nomination of Abubakar-Audu was a reward for his late father’s sacrifice.
”For all the sacrifices, I am rewarding Prince Abubakar Audu, for all his sacrifices too (possibly pointing to Shaibu who was not visible in the video), I no loss, I gain plenty. To God be the glory!” Yayaha Bello said.
In response, the senator said the governor is over ”rewarding us”.
Late Abubakar Audu was the first civilian governor of Kogi state. He ruled the state twice — first in the third republic and in the fourth republic.
The late politician died in 2015 shortly after the announcement of the election results on 22 November.
He was seeking re-election as governor on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
