Nigerians React As Serving Senator Knees Down For Gov Yahaya Bello



There were bursts of reactions after Senator Isah Jibrin Echocho, representing Kogi East Senatorial district in the 10th national assembly was seen kneeling completely for Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello.

In a video that emerged online on Thursday, August 3, 2023, Senator Echocho after exchanging pleasantries with Yahaya Bello, went down on his knee in what seems to be an appreciative gesture.

Echocho who is a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), defeated Victor Adoji of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election to become a member of the 10th National Assembly.

Meanwhile, the senator’s act in the video has quickly spread like wildfire across social media platforms and elicited a mix of reactions from Nigerians from all walks of life.

While some hailed the senator’s show of humility and respect, others were skeptical about the underlying motives and questioned whether it was a political ploy to gain favor with the Kogi governor.

@BenjiePam said; “The man went down by himself so how’s Yahaya power drunk? The Senator mumu abeg.”

@Badmanseed wrote; “My broda if Belle infrastructure fit make person papa go beach open nyash declare support for BAT then this one na small fry😭😭😭🤡🤡🤡🤡.”

@IOkwuijen said; “Yes,that’s Nigeria. Transactional politics. The Senator knows he’s going to make money in the Senate.
Oboh Lawrence Osezua (WHITELION).”

@OBOHLAW said; “But nobody forced him to kneel. Please report it the right way.”

@okenwaAZ said; “The governor just wanted a hand shake the man knelt down yakata.”

@eesco12 wrote; “His Excellency also didn’t expect that o.he was as shocked as we are😁.”
