Melaye May Have Burnt School Projects - Governor Bello Alleges

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has alleged that Senator Dino Melaye (APC-Kogi West) could have staged the burning of a block of four classrooms, a constituency project he executed.

The lawmaker donated the projects to the  Government Girls’ Secondary School, Sarki Noma, Lokoja.

Speaking in an interview with on the Osasu Show, Bello denied that he or his supporters played a role in the attack.

He said: “The project that was embarked on by him that was burnt down is highly condemnable. I condemn it in its entirety.

“Remember the person in question is an attention seeker, remember he has orchestrated self-attacks severally in the state and I won’t be surprised in order to draw public sympathy if he organised that for himself.

“This is a project he started; nobody stopped you from starting it. You continued it and you completed it, nobody stopped you. You are about commissioning it, why would anybody go and burn it down? Why would any right thinking person go there and burn it down

“That is not our character, that is not my own style of politicking. If anything, any development is for the people. The money did not come from his pocket, it is public fund meant for the people. So, if he tries to do that, and turn around to seek for public sympathy and orchestrated that on himself again, it is most unfortunate. That is the only way I can attribute it.

“In Kogi State remember, that we inherited a volatile state where a lot of insecurity, violence used to be an order of the day but upon assumption of office, Kogi state is the safest today.”
