Governor Bello rubbishes Kogi APC vote of no confidence

17 April 2016, 18:38

Abuja – Kogi State Governor Alhaji Yahaya Bello has rubbished claims made by the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state - that he was sideling members of the party in the state’s affairs.

According to Naij, Bello said it was his constitutional responsibility to appoint his personal aides without any recourse to a group of people, provided the person met up the requirement as stipulated by law of the land.

This came after the APC in the Kogi State chapter passed a vote of no confidence against him, saying he was sidelining members of the state excecutive and other organs of the oarty in the affairs of the state. 

It was alleged, through a letter addressed to the National Chairperson of the APC, John Odigie-Oyegun that Bello was socializing with the opposition People Democratic Party (PDP).

The letter detailed the many "sins" of Bello, the report said.

The governor said he was yet to be informed by the national secretariat of ‎APC about the petition.

He, however, accused the state chairperson of the APC, Alhaji Haddi Ametuo of moving against his government because his brother, Honourable Jimoh Lawal was removed as speaker of the Kogi state House of Assembly.
