Kogi Governor, Yahaya Bello has stated that his Administration is gradually winning the war against poverty.
Speaking in Lokoja on Monday through his Director General on Media and Publicity, Kingsley Fanwo, Bello said his policies have positioned the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the most popular party in the state.
According to the Governor, the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Desk under his Administration has provided water and health facilities to the masses at the grassroots.
“Our Administration is very popular in the grassroots. This is evident from the poverty index revealed recently which clearly showed Kogi is gradually creeping out of the poverty circle.
“With the provision of water at the grassroots, we have been able to reduce water-related diseases in the urban and rural areas.
“The health intervention programs of our government has also helped to create a healthy society of people who are vibrant enough to create wealth. A healthy society is a wealthy society,”Bello said.
