A governor without anchor

The Bible says, it is God that raises kings, and dethrones them. There is little doubt that the emergence of Yahaya Bello as governor of Kogi state is for a purpose.
Without the hope of becoming governor as at when he did, it is easy to conclude that it is to an expected end.
If the governor were to be a Christian, one will certainly believe that he will hold tenaciously to Jeremiah 29:11. The verse declare that the Lord knows the thoughts He has towards you, thoughts of good, and not evil, to bring you to an expected end.
Many Christians hold to this; they pray it, confess it and declare it especially when the tide of life turns against them.
Though Bello may not be of the Christian faith, this is the time for him to confess this article of faith as his party in the state has disowned him, abandoned him and thrown the baby with the bathe water.
For a governor sitting on a wobbly throne, Bello should have known how to wade through the treacherous waters of politics. But it seems the reality of the precarious nature of his ascension was lost on him, and now the disowning by those who should be his allies.
In a letter dated April 12, 2016, and addressed to the National Chairman of the APC, John Odigie-Oyegun and signed by all the 34 members of the state executive council, the Kogi APC said the governor is without anchor, therefore, was headed to the rocks.
Bello, may your ship find anchor, before it maroons on the Island of nothingness.
