‘it’s wicked and stupid! I don’t know how to respond to such’

 

That was a response from one of the aides to the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Governor Seyi Makinde when asked to confirm if truly the Governor recently acquired a private jet.

 

A report monitored online by papermache.com alleged that the Governor has joined the league of jet owners in Nigeria.

 

Governor Makinde was said to have been spotted at the Felix Houphouet Airport, Abidjan alighting from the aircraft alongside, Alhaji Azeem Gbolarumi and Alhaji Bisi Olopoeniyan at the just concluded AFCON finals.

 

This stemmed the report that the Governor has just acquired the private jet for his private use.

 

Another aide of the Governor who refused to add his name, citing reasons that he wasn’t allowed to make official comments responded to the allegation as ‘funny! How can you say somebody bought a jet because he alighted from it?’.

A group, Kogi Frontline Solidarity has condemned the approval of Ali Bello by the new Kogi State Governor, Ahmed Ododo as his Chief of Staff.

 

The new Governor who took over from former Governor Yahaya Bello while making his first appointment named Ai Bello his Chief of Staff, a move regarded by the group as demeaning and embarrassing.

 

The group secretary of Kogi Frontline Solidarity, Afiz Buawa made this disclosure in a statement he sent to journalists.

 

In the email, Buawa hinted that the new Chief of Staff aside from being the nephew to the former Governor is under investigation by the EFCC for misappropriation.

 

In the message, the Secretary queried the decision saying ‘you can see the level of people running the affairs of Kogi. It’s obvious that all the appointments made so far was done by Yahaya Bello. You can just do the simple maths that the new Chief of Staff, aside from being his nephew is one of the people that stole from the State and we are saying no to his appointment. Let him clear himself from EFCC first. It’s rather shameful that Kogi is running a one-man-show’.

 

The Kogi Frontline Solidarity has vowed not to stop fighting till the appointment is reversed claiming Ali Bello as the Chief of Staff in this new government will give a wrong impression and determine how the State would be run in the next 4 years.
