ALL KOGI STATE TERTIARY INSTITITIONS TO RESUME ON OR
BEFORE MAY 15 2017.

  In a negotiation, you do not stick to your guns. We have shifted
grounds many times because we want Kogi State to be better. I want the whole public to know we have done our best within the
limits of resources at our disposal. We expect that lecturers also make concessions for the sake of our children.

 We have until Monday next week to ensure all these issues are taken care of and our students resume.

 March subventions will get to the schools before then. After which, we should be able to resume school by 15th. Our children have stayed at home for too long. If they refuse to resume by 15th, government will be forced to take drastic actions so that students will continue their education as their lives cannot be put on hold forever.

 Students take to the streets because they perceive government is the problem. Infrastructure is decayed, yet schools continue to generate funds.

I plead with councils here to work between tomorrow and Friday to ensure these issues are put behind us for the long term.

We will do our part and I expect every individual to do their bit so we can move our state forward.

 I appeal to students, I was once like you and my education helped to get me where I am today. I have your best interests at
heart. I know how it feels to be out of school for this long. Our state, mine and yours, was held down for too long. We must clear the rot but in doing so we must step on toes and we do not expect the people affected not to fight back.

Give us the benefit of the doubt. Kogi State shall be great for us all. We are doing all
we can to ensure you go back to school by the week of May 15th. Please, continue to be law abiding.
-Governor Yahaya Bello.
