State Agenda

Creative Financial & Social Engineering

In Kogi State, we have had to resort to creative financial and social engi-neering to redistribute our meager federal allocations in the overall best interests of the citizenry. By a complex combination of cost-cutting, priori-tization and elimination of wastage, we have been able to stretch our purse to pay salaries, provide social services and execute the very visi-ble infrastructural projects we have ongoing all over Kogi State. We have made appointments in a way calculated to unite our people across the State and foster participation in Governance by all positive and progressive persons. I nominated His Excellency, Right Honourable Simeon Achuba, as Deputy Governor and appointed Honourable Ed-ward David Onoja as my Chief of Staff. They are both from from Kogi East. Mrs. Ayoade Folashade Arike from Kogi West became Secretary to the Kogi State Government. So far, we have appointed 21 Special Ad-visers, one from each Local Government Area of Kogi State. All ap-pointments have continued to reflect the twin principles of Equity and Merit.

Agricultural Advancement

We have deployed 21 earth-moving plants (bulldozers and graders) for use at no costs by the Local Governments Area. The immediate impact is massive clearing and dressing of rural and farm roads across the Lo-cal Government Areas. We are reforming the Kogi State Civil Service at the same time with an aim to make the business of Government fast and result-oriented. We are paying great attention to Agriculture. It is the next frontier in our revenue projections. Several task forces we have set up have already started making gains in this area. For instance, in one area where the State has been averaging N2m revenue monthly, we have already earned N13m in April simply by blocking the leakages. This is intended to grow into many other areas. We are also signing Memoranda of Understanding with tested large scale farm enterprises. The Dangote Group has negotiated for 20,000 Hectares for rice production and others are in the pipeline. This will pro-vide many jobs and have incalculable multiplier effects.

Health Care Reforms

Some results are already noticeable including completion of abandoned pressing projects such as the Ibaji LGA Secretariat, pedestrian bridge at Kabba/Bunu, Primary Health Care Centres at Ekirin-Adde, Okene and Olamaboro respectively. There is also ongoing renovation of the Chiefs' Lodge in Lokoja to give decent accommodation to our Royal Fathers whenever they are in the Capital on duty. This will also save the State money on hotel and hospitality costs.
