Yahaya Bello Denies the allegation for being relocated to Abuja…
Mr Onogwu quoted that:
“That is a lie from the pit of hell concocted by the imagination of those who are only interested in spreading falsehood.
“Governor Yahaya Bello was billed to travel with Mr President to Jordan alongside with Governors Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo and Badaru of Jigawa State.
“The governor has been on the ground in the state since last week and has not travelled to Abuja. He had to cancel that trip to Jordan with President Buhari because from the security reports he gathered, there was a plot to threaten the peace of the people of Omala Local Government Area.
“So, he cancelled that trip and has been on the ground in Kogi State. He held meetings with the various security agencies in Kogi.
“Based on the meeting, the security apparatus in Kogi moved to Omala Local Government Area and they were there till yesterday morning until they repelled the attack.
“The governor is presently in the state, coming to office, attending to issues that border on the well-being of the people of Kogi State.
“To say the governor has relocated to Abuja because of the second term is a lie and should not be taken seriously by well-meaning Nigerians.
“Yahaya Bello is not after the second term in office. He is not desperate about getting himself a second term ticket by relocating to Abuja.
“He is assuring himself of a second term ticket by giving the people of Kogi State good governance.”
