Anxiety in Kogi Over Governor Bello’s Whereabouts

Tongues are beginning to wag in the Confluence State of Kogi State following the sudden disappearance of the state governor, Yahaya Bello from the public scene.



This is just as there are speculations in the state that the Ebira-born governor might have been jetted overseas to treat an undisclosed ailment.

All state functions have been put on hold leaving the Deputy Governor, Simon Achuba, with only the duty of receiving visitors on behalf of his boss.

Reacting to the development, the coordinator of PDP Youth Frontier, Austin Ohkai said the All Progressives Congress must provide the governor as soon as possible.

“We have the right to know the whereabouts of our governor. He can’t leave a private life while governing a state. We deserve to know where he is because he did not inform the state house of assembly that he was traveling.

“As far as I am concerned, our governor is missing and we deserve to know where he is. Kogi State is now without a governor and without a government for about two weeks now, this is pathetic,” he told DAILY POST on phone.

However, the governor’s spokesman, Kingsley Fanwo, has denied that the governor was nursing any ailment.

In a statement issued on Sunday night, Fanwo urged the public to discountenance “the rumour,” describing it as lacking any iota of truth.

“My attention has been drawn to the spurious rumour that there are concerns over the health of the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.

“I want to state clearly here for the avoidance of doubt that the rumour lacks any iota of truth. It is a reflection of the depth the enemies of Kogi State have gone in their desperate angst against fate.”

Fanwo added, “The governor is hale and hearty, healthy and unwavering in his vigour to make Kogi State the Confluence of Excellence.

“I urge all Kogites of goodwill to discountenance the rumour as His Excellency will return from his two weeks break on the 12th of November, 2016.”

If he's taking a break, there's a procedure to follow. Try and schooled yourself before making comments.

The funny part is that, no explaination has been given for the Governor's whereabouts, the spokesman just avoided the question.

Politicians love drama. So all of a sudden Kogi politicians have become their governor's keeper such that they can no longer sleep.

Governor Bello's media team need reorientation. The press releases are always like they are fighting with somebody. It looks like a "we vs them" thing. This sycophancy style is dated and self defeating. Anyone close to the governor should let him know about this childish behaviour. We just care about the whereabouts of our governor, that's all. Also, please pay our parents their pension. Thank you.
