The Senator representing Kogi West, Smart Adeyemi, has said he has no regret supporting the presidential bid of his state Governor, Yahaya Adoza Bello, despite the latter’s opposition to his return to the senate.
Adeyemi lost the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket for Kogi West to Sunday Karimi at the party’s primary held on May 28, 2022, in Kabba, Kogi.
The lawmaker said he participated in the primary against the advice of the state’s APC Chairman, Abdullahi Bello, who he revealed asked him to step down and work fully for the presidential bid of Governor Bello.
Adeyemi, who chairs the Senate Committee on Aviation, stated this while briefing newsmen at the National Assembly in Abuja.
He said a meeting behind closed doors called by the state’s party chairman at the instance of the governor to pressure him to withdraw from the race was deadlocked as he insisted on going ahead.
He explained that, “I want to say that I have no regrets in supporting and standing for the Kogi State Government at all given times. I have no regrets supporting the Governor of my state, Yahaya Adoza Bello. It remains the proper thing to do.
And we must always endeavour do what is right.
