Kogi APC Alleges Yahaya Bello squandered over 200 Billion within A year As Governor

Yahaya Bello

The leadership of the All Progressive Congress has made some sensitive allegations against the executive Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello that he has squandered money as a Governor.

 In a briefing held in Abuja on Friday, the party gave an ultimatum of 4 weeks, for the governor to pay up all outstanding entitlements of civil servants and pensioners from the N30 billion bailout fund that is available to Kogi state.
"The responsibility of any responsive leader is to be transparent, accountable and justifiable in its financial conducts.
"Governor Yahaya in defiant to this standard rule of good governance has never deemed it necessary to render public account since his assumption of office. All the other Governors that just spent one year in office accounted for their stewardship nationwide.
"This has led to gross public financial failure and reckless spending by the government, as we have it on record that Governor Bello has wasted and lavished over N230 billion in one year."

The Briefing was attended by Kogi West APC Senator, Dino Melaye, 5 former senators, serving and past House of reps members of APC extraction and elders of the party drawn from across the LGAs.
