Bello who described Kokori as a perfect leader, recalled that he represented his people at the National Assembly at a time his constituency was engulfed in protractive political crisis but was able to use his wealth of wisdom and tactness to resolve the situation.

He said the humble disposition and open door policy of the late political icon endeared him to many people, adding that the late political icon was like a golden fish that could not be hidden.

Bello said Kokori has left behind a deep vacuum in the political landscape of Kogi Central Senatorial district and the state at large.
