Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, Chairman of South East Senate caucus, has said the Kogi State Governor, “Yahaya Bello behaves like little Hitler.”
The lawmaker stated this while lambasting Bello over his alleged high handedness in handling the issue of security in the state.
Speaking during plenary yesterday, the lawmaker expressed worry that things may get worse if Bello gains control of the police in the state.
Abaribe maintained that Bello was bad example of youths in leadership.
According to Abaribe, “Why would a member of this Hallowed Chamber not be left to do what he has to do for his constituents? It may be him today but it will be another person tomorrow.
“That means if the governor doesn’t like what you are doing, he will send the Police after you. How can we live in this country and have an avowed war hero who told us that ‘once I step into office, I will take care of security’? Yet, things are worse than ever.
“We shouldn’t put this under the table. It was Dino, now Ogembe. Tomorrow it may be Aidoko, all in the same Kogi state.
“People have been running around and saying that we need youths in government. The man in Kogi is a youth but how come this youth does not know what he is doing? There is so much insecurity in this particular place.
“That does not give credence that this country should be handed over to a youth. If we hand over this country to him, what will now happen? This country will be thrown to the dogs. It is not youth but the ideas that you have.
“I want you to even go for that his seat because if that is what is making him feel so big, let someone else challenge him. We cannot continue this way where Senators will be afraid to go home because somebody is sitting down there, deciding that he will be a little Hitler.”
