The Kogi state government has reacted to the deputy governor’s claim, Mr. Simon Achuba, that Governor Yahaya Bello went afterlife.
In a statement Thursday afternoon by chief press secretary Onogwu Mohammed, the government described the claim as false and an exhibition of blind rage over an angry suction with a long-term pattern of abnormal behavior characterized by exaggerated feelings of importance personal.
The statement says in part: “The government of the state of Kogi is horrified that a vice governor, who should personify leadership and good example in every way, can descend so low to employ a smear campaign against the person of His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Bello and we declare without hesitation, Mr. Achuba has no proof of his imprudent assumption, which is nothing more than a scripted adventure in a ruinous experience.
“We do not train murderers, (and) as such, the state government or its staff cannot participate in sending murderers to kill any human soul and much less a vice governor of our beloved state.”
“However, despite these unsubstantiated ramblings, we consider it convenient to clarify the matter by informing the general public that the Kogi State Government would not be dragged into any form of political gerrymandering designed to promote political interest or notoriety. of any person. ”
“The state government challenged Achuba to present evidence of his claims or give up making new spurious accusations.
“We warn Mr. Simon Achuba, known in history as a man whose affinity for violence has no parallel to not judge us by his standards. The report of the Commission of Inquiry of the Government of the State of Kogi on the ethnic crises of Iyaño in 2017 is still fresh in our memories.
“The government of the state of Kogi led by Alhaji Yahaya Bello, therefore, rejects the futile attempt to link him to any attempted assassination of the Vice Governor and we advise that people give up seeking political capital in scenarios that they imagine would advance their parish cause, no matter how banal these causes may seem. ”
“The Nigerians and the Kogites, in particular, are aware that it is not like the administration to persecute the perceived opponents, much less the second in command of the New Direction team.
We have continued to be a model of peaceful commitment and political dialogue. Any inclination to portray us otherwise will not be acceptable,” the statement said.
