Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has taken Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State to the cleaners for calling Senator Dino Melaye a ‘General’ out of all the serving senators in the country.
In a statement by the Director-General on Media and Publicity to the governor, Kingsley Fanwo: “The Kogi State Government is appalled by a viral video depicting the unfortunate and very public intervention of His Excellency, Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State, in the very justified and constitutionally unimpeachable move by constituents of Kogi West senatorial district to recall Senator Dino.”
“We believe that Governor Udom’s unveiled disdain for a long-suffering people trudging the booby-trapped path to recall of their senator in a bid to recover their dignity is uncalled for.”
“Governor Udom’s scathing rebuke for Kogi West people who are engaged in legal pursuit of their legitimate aspiration to terminate irresponsible representation goes against all democratic norms. It also does gratuitous violence to the customary esprit de corps which ordinarily ought to actuate the conduct of brother Governors and States towards one another in the Nigerian polity.”
