On 4th February, 2024 the former Nigerian Senator representing Kogi State East Senatorial District, Senator Alex Kadiri during an interview in Abuja said it was a shame for the current Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Usman Ododo and his wife to knelt down for the outgoing Governor of the State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello at the Inauguration Ceremony of the newly elected Governor of the State.
According to the former Nigerian Senator representing Kogi State East Senatorial District, Senator Alex Kadiri said “What is going on in Kogi and people are afraid or tired of talking because the APC doesn’t care. You can imagine the inauguration of the New Governor who failed to recognize the Chairman of the Traditional Council the Ata Igala. The governor and his wife kneeled down for the outgoing governor at the inauguration ground. What a shame. That same way a serving senator removed his shoes and knelt down for the one they call himself white Lion.”
Senator Alex Kadiri boasted that he was from Kogi State and no matter what he had become in Abuja he could not forget that he came from Kogi. He also added that the State was completely messed up by the All Progressive Congress (APC).
