Knowing Yabagi Bologi was legendary, popularly known as ‘Boxy’  both as a grassroot politician with grassroot politics and supports in the 90s.
A patient politician , and a graduate of political science from one of the highly recognized university in Nigeria, his political contemporaries in Lokoja then were the Bala Salisu’s, former then Kogi local government chairman between 1989-1991 and Surajudeen Yusuf Abdullahi, former chairman, Lokoja local government chairman in 1991-1993 and Kashim Mabo 1995-1997.
He started his politicking during the military era of Babaginda, spanned to the aborted Abacha regime and later Abdulsalami Alhaji Abubakar.
Yabagi Bologi, down to earth, exposed and sociable as well as interactive, he became two time chairman, Lokoja local government in the 2000s and became a commissioner in Kogi state, first as Commissioner for commerce and industry and later information in Kogi state between 2010-2016.
Boxy, had understudied the political dynamics and history of the old Lokoja local government before the creation of Kogi local government in koton Karfe in 1990 during Babaginda era.
Cool, calm and goal getting with alot of political followership and command in the heart of the state capital in Lokoja, having performed creditably well as local government chairman and a two time commissioner in Kogi state.
Bologi had a large political resume having worked with the political movers and shakers of Kogi central ,Kogi state at large, as he watched keenly on the ascension of state and federal lawmakers from the area.
Politically, for many years, Kogi local government had held forth at the National Assembly at the green chamber to the detriment of Lokoja local government from  late Adamu Osuku, Late Buba Jibrin, Wambai and now Shaba Ibrahim all from kogi local government.
A strong member of the progressive People’s Democratic Party PDP over the decades, Bologi had patiently allowed the status quo, but the die is now cast for the party’s candidate to emanate from Lokoja local government.
Yabagi Bologi and the people of Lokoja local government had been patient enough and allowed the political arrangements to stay to the betterment of the two local government areas in the state capital.
The decision of Bologi to throw in the towel has come, and now all hands must be on deck to support our political juggernaut, Yabagi Bologi as member Kogi /Lokoja Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives in 2023.
