Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has dropped a bombshell.
He said; “All these reports of me owing salaries are lies. Past governors of Kogi State were owning salaries starting from Audu to my immediate predecessor. Kogi state is not owning any dime at the state level, what is left is the ten percent from the previous government.”
“As for El-Rufai kneeling, he was begging that Kogi people should forgive Bello for ensuring security and ensuring the state was peaceful and not because he could not pay salaries.”
“After I was declared winner, a PDP thug stabbed somebody and ran into the house of their women leader but he was caught and dealt with.”
“My deputy governor-elect’s wife was shot at but thank God she didn’t die, the police are looking into it and would bring the culprits to book.”
For those who don’t know, Yahaya Bello had been declared winner by INEC’s Returning Officer in Kogi State, Prof. Ibrahim Garuba after polling 406,222 votes to defeat his closest rival, Musa Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who scored 189,704 votes.
