KOGI STATE APC PASS VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE ON GOVERNOR,ACCUSED OF APPOINTING ONLY PDP MEMBERS INTO CABINET
The Kogi State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is on the war path with Governor Yahaya Bello after passing a vote of no confidence in him.
The party has also reported the governor officially to the APC National Secretariat in Abuja.
Bello is accused of sidelining members of the state executive council and other organs of the party in the affairs of the state, and patronizing members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Rising from a meeting in Lokoja, the State Executive Council of the APC said that of the 45 appointments so far made by the governor since his inauguration, he has not deemed a single member of the party fit enough for the positions.
“All the 45 appointments made so far by Gov. Yahaya Bello are given to the PDP,” they said, and vowed to have nothing to do with him “from now henceforth.”
They accused him of supporting the PDP in the last re-run election “making us to lose two senators, one House of Reps and two House of Assembly members.”
They labeled him “an APC governor who has not deemed it fit to appoint a single APC member in his cabinet and board, an APC Governor who openly relates with PDP Local Government Chairmen and leaders and abandon his party men is not our best dream project.”
Besides, they accused the governor of masterminding the leadership crisis now rocking the State House of Assembly which led to a resolution by the House of Representatives to take over the affairs of the state legislature.
They asked the national leadership of the party to ensure that Bello has no input whatsoever in who will be replacing the late Minister of State for Labour, Mr. James Ocholi.
However, the governor’s spokesman, Kingsley Fanwo, dismissed the allegations against his principal as untrue.
“It is absolutely untrue, ignominious and unintelligent to insinuate that members of the State Executive Committee of APC are working at variance with the landmark progress of the APC government in the state.”
He called for the co-operation of all APC members with the governor for him to succeed for the glory of the party.
