The Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Simon Achuba, has said that Governor Yahaya Bello of the state has not completed a single project since he came to power, adding that the governor does not deserve a second term.
The Deputy Governor stated this in an interview published in The Cable of Thursday, August 15, in which he also alleged that his rift with the governor was because he (Achuba) insisted that the right thing be done.
Voice of Liberty gathers that the Deputy Governor said that Bello has not paid the remaining 50% of August, September, October, November, and December 2018 salaries.
“There is no meaningful project that has been brought to 100 percent completion …that he started that has got to 100 percent completion…. No!” he said.
Achuba described as laughable, his suspension by the All Progressives Congress in the state, insisting that he has not been suspended, saying, “Well, the issue of my suspension is a laughable one. And as we are talking, I am just laughing. It is of no effect because in Kogi state we have two factions of Exco (the party executive) and the issue is before a court of competent jurisdiction. And which faction is the authentic faction?
“Secondly, if you are starting suspension, you start from the person’s ward, and then you move to the local government and then come to the state and all that. And of course, what they have done is like they are saying, ‘this man has given us so much heat.
“What can we do? Help us at least to hit him back and put him in bad light before the public. That is the reason why they came up with the announcement that I have been suspended. I have not been suspended at all.”
