Share This

From Ahmad Ibrahim, Lokoja

Following the woeful performance of the aides of Governor Yahaya Bello, over the failed recall project of the Senator Dino Melaye representing the western axis of Kogi State, things seemed to have fallen apart at the seat of power in Lokoja.
Investigation by Peoples Daily revealed that the governor was angry and has decided to shun his aides who were said to have promised to deliver last Saturday, only to be caught napping when the chips were down.
The governor is at the moment considering many option on the table, including showing some “paper tigers” in his cabinet from the western flank of the state, the way out.
According to a source close to Government House, Lokoja, the governor who was said to have been “ terribly angered” following the botched efforts to recall the embattled senator, was said to have threatened to send the aides packing for non performance.
The seven local government administrators in the axis who were said to have told the governor that they have “heavily mobilized”, are said to be at the centre of the failed project, as some have secretly resorted to visiting spiritual homes to help them retain their jobs.
With the alleged threat of the governor, it was also gathered that all the political appointees from the zone have gone underground as several phone calls put across to some of the aides by newsmen could not go through, as the lines responded with “ the number you are calling has been switched off “.
Peoples Daily equally gathered that during the Saturday verification exercise, some governor’s aides who allegedly attempted to disrupt the exercise were rebuffed by the people.
However, when contacted, the Director General Media and Publicity to the governor, Mr. Kingsley Fanwo denied any mobilization funds being doled out for the recall project by the state government.
He described the rumour making the rounds as a ruse, and an attempt to paint the state government black.
