Is Governor Bello Getting it right in Kogi State? #Part 1
As the tenure of the present administration of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State draws to an end on 27th January, 2024 and the governorship election slated for 11th November, 2023, the good people of the Kogi state are demanding for clarification over the status of some of the governor’s appointees that resigned and contested for the office of the state governor sometime ago.
Confluence news gathered that by law and the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, any contestants should declared their office vacant having participated in the primaries, namely: Office of the Chief of Staff, the Accountant General, the Auditor General, Commissioner for Finance, Economic Budget Planning and that of the Ministry for Local Government and Chieftaincy affairs among others.
Information available to the Confluence news indicates that, the occupants of the above mentioned offices should not parade themselves as rightful occupants of the offices, except the governor do the needful by giving them fresh nomination and have their names forwarded to the state assembly for screening and confirmation for those who have done excellently well among them.
At the meeting of the state executive council held recently at Government House, Lokoja, the governor officially thanked them and wished them well in their future endeavours.
But the questions bagging for answers at this moment are, who is the Chief of staff to the governor of Kogi State and that of the Accountant General, Finance, Auditor general for state among others?
