Kogi APC Passes Vote Of No Confidence On Gov. Bello

Published

on

Yahaya-BelloThe Kogi State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has passed a vote of no confidence on Governor Yahaya Bello.
The party has also reported the governor officially to the APC National Secretariat in Abuja.
Bello is among others, 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 capital at the weekend, the State Executive Council of the APC said that of the 45 appointments so far made by Gov. Bello since his inauguration, he has not deemed a single member of the party fit enough for any position.
“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 also accused him of tacitly supporting the PDP in the last re-run election in the state “making us to lose two senators, one House of Reps and two House of Assembly members”.
They described 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”.
In addition, the party accused the governor of masterminding the leadership crisis now rocking the state House of Assembly.
They, therefore, urged the national leadership of the party to ensure that Governor Bello has no input whatsoever in who will be filling the state’s slot in the Federal Executive Council following the demise of Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Mr. James Ocholi (SAN).
