Poll Survey: Eighty Percent of Kogi Electorate Reject Bello, Myles Morgan Polling & Research Institute Confirms
A reliable poll research institute has yielded useful information regarding the forthcoming gubernatorial race in Kogi state in a survey carried out to project the possible outcome of the election which comes up in November, 2019.
Myles Morgan Polling & Research Institute, our reporter gathered, carried out an extensive psephological survey on the gubernatorial election in Kogi State in a bid to predict the outcome and project the chances of the candidates gunning for Lugard House; and has submitted its report to the Presidency.
Information from the survey data shows that 80% of voters across Kogi State are highly unlikely to vote the incumbent governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello back to power as there is widespread resentment and concomitant discontent with his administration.
The poll survey reveals non-payment of salaries to the state workforce, non-payment of gratuities and pensions to the State’s senior citizens, lack of basic infrastructure, penchant for violence and the cornucopia of political, social and economic rights abuse being perpetrated by the Bello’s government against the Kogi people as the factors responsible for the unpopularity and outright rejection of the incumbent governor by 80% of the voters.
Myriad of civil servants and ordinary citizens in the State interviewed in the course of the survey expressed gross dissatisfaction and asserted that the incumbent governor will lose the coming election as he has failed in his primary responsibilities as governor to pay salaries promptly and for not embarking on socioeconomic and infrastructural developments commensurate with the large inflow of funds into the state under governor Bello’s watch.
A state civil servant who pleaded anonymity stressed: “Kogi state has never been this impoverished. We the workers have practically become beggars as we grapple to survive without salaries. We cannot take care of our families. The state has never received as much funds under any previous government as Yahaya Bello is receiving from the federal government, yet, he cannot pay salaries and there are no capital projects to show for all the huge inflows of money into the state from the Federal government coffers. So many have died. We are tired. We won’t vote Bello to return as his re-election will be a disastrous plague on us and our people”.
