- Kogi state governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, on Sunday, March 11, fired all his commissioners, as well as the 21 administrators of the local government areas.
- Few minutes later, however, Governor Bello reversed the decision
- The PDP in the state, says that the governor's action showed he is clueless on issues of governance
The Kogi state chapter of the PDP on Monday, March 12, berated Governor Yahaya Bello for exhibiting juvenile delinquency in governance.
The party was reacting to the governor's decision to reverse his action in dissolving the state executive council and the council administrators in the 21 local councils within minutes.
The party said the governor’s rigmarole in decision-making on sensitive issues that affect the lives of the people of the state was a hallmark of his administration brazen ineptitude and cluelessness.
In a statement signed by its director, research and documentation, Achadu Dickson, the PDP said the drama had once again reinforced the party’s position that Bello is not fit to govern Kogi state.
“The last two years of Bello’s administration have been characterised by inconsistencies in policy making and the weekend drama has proven once again that the governor is not in charge and does not have a mind of his own to govern a complex state like Kogi," part of the statement read.
The PDP disagreed with the percentage payment of salaries to council workers after laying off over 80 per cent of the workforce and called on the governor to pay salaries of workers in the state.
The party also urged the governor to quickly meet the demand of medical doctors in the state who had been on strike for four months due to non-payment of their salaries.
In a related development, the PDP has said the alleged linking of Governor Bello to an arms importation saga, shows that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is desperate as the 2019 elections draw near.
