Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello Accused Of Stealing N20Billion Bailout Fund

The Northern Youths Intellectual-Advocacy Forum (NYIF) has call on President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB) to as a matter of National importance appoint a substantive Minister representing Kogi State.

In a statement issue by its National President ABDUL YAHAYA ORUMA, he noted

”While we are all aware that PMB is overwhelmed with several challenges confronting us as a Nation, it is logical he appoint a Minister of the Federal Republic representing Kogi State for the vacuum created by the demise of Late James Ocholi, the Minister of Labour and Productivity for State who died along his wife and son in a ghastly motor accident”.

”While every Minister of the Federal Republic representing various States smile to the bank at the end of every month that can not be said of Kogi State in the last five (5) months. It should be noted that the contribution of Kogi State to the emergence of APC across board is unimaginable yet briefed with calamities on two fronts.

First the demise of a great icon of Kogi politics Prince Abubakar Audu on his election victory whose mandate the current Governor Alhaji Yahaya Bello is dwelling and secondly the mysterious exit of Late James Ocholi his wife and son. Incidentally both are of Igala extraction, the largest ethnic group in the State. May their souls rest in perfect peace. Amen!”

“Kogi State at the moment is the worst State in Nigeria blessed with accidental Governor in the person of Alhaji Yahaya Bello whom in his greed and desperation for political relevance has subjected the entire civil servant to perpetual hardship. The N20 billion bail-out fund specifically for the civil servant in the State is now lying in his private account accruing interest while people lost their lives on daily bases.”

“As we speak no functional State Assembly to pass any resolution, his five (5) factional Assembly members are greater than sixteen (16) and nothing anybody can do about it not even the Federal Legislative fiat. We strongly feel this is in conjunction with the power that be and the Presidency can not be mute over this State saga forever.”

The exemplary leadership quality exhibited by Governor Yahaya Bello so far is a further justification that Gen. Obasanjo’s 1979 assertion on Nigerian youth that we are tomorrow leader would continue to enjoy unending rhetoric. If not how on earth would a Governor relics the suffering of his people over lavishing millions of Naira on wife’s birthday party only to invite musicians to dance naked in a Holy month of Ramadan yet he claimed to be a Muslim.

We call on Mr. President to intervene and do the needful in order to avert the looming crisis in the State. Yes Nigeria is passing through a trying period but with the sincerity of purpose and togetherness we would surmount it.

Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria!
Long live PMB!!
Long live Northern Youths Intellectual-Advocacy Forum (NYIF)!!!

  1. Buhari, abeg give Kogi wetin they are beg for. No de hide something weyris not you weyris get am. Is a give and take govment. So give.

  2. Is the interest on those deposits commensurate to the lives of those workers?Mr. Governor, I think it just too early for you to start having issues with your people. Remember four (4) years is around the corner. Please take corrective measures before it is too late.

  3. This type of alligation or accusation leveled against kogi state Governor Yahaya Bello should be taking very seriously. First,it is important that the vacuum left by the demise of late James Ocholi the minister of labour and productivity in kogi state in that tragic accident should be filled with a well qualified individual who is dedicated and has the best interest of kogi people at heart.

    While there is a looming danger of total collapse of kogi state fragile economy,why will a governor who should working hard to revive the poor economy condition in kogi state be indulging in such questionable birth day party of his wife worthing millions of naira with so many display of musicians dancing nakedly in the holy month of ramadan. Such conduct from the governor’s house does not show he’s after the well being and the development of his state at a time when his state is grappling with economic downturn.

    That N20 billion bail out fund meant for diversification of their economy should be thoroughly investigated by the EFCC by the order of mr president. I have always advocate for good Governors which is integral part of what the nation need in reviving each states economy. This petition to mr president should not be swept under the carpet as the lives of kogi state people are at stake.

  4. Is the interest on the deposits commensurate to the lives of those workers? Mr Governor its too early for you to be having issues with your people.

  5. Should the President on his own take the action you now ask of him are you sure you will not turn round and accuse him of dictatorship seeing that this is now a democratically elected Government and not Military regime ? To start with there is the immunity granted certain sitting officers under the Constitution; there is also procedure in the same Constitution for handling situations such as you are complaining about. The matter should therefore be handled In a constitutional manner rather than as a one man power show.
    Just saying though, because no matter how annoyed we are, there is still need to uphold our democracy and our National Constitution.

  6. i think the stoning they did to this man need upgradement.. he still need to be stoned better still a little just like that of Stephen..

  7. The problem facing our country stem from each state inability to generate revenue through other means such as agricultural sector for sustainability of economic growth in there region. A situation where local and state government is waiting for there share in oil revenue to pay there workers is not helping the nation at all. We have natural resources in every part of the country. Let both local and state government go round there area to see what they can produce to boost internally generated revenue. Every body must be productive and put all option on the table to enhance there economy in there states. A situation whereby each state will be waiting for federal allocation before paying there staffs must stop. Now during this turbulent period in the state of our economy in the country is where we now have greedy and wicked governor like Yahaya bello who have enriched himself along with his family with a mind-boggling amount of money meant for bailing out there stagnant infrastructure and the payment of there workers but kept those huge sum of money in his private account leaving the workers in his state with a host of responsibilities on there neck to cater for like families,children,mothers,fathers and siblings with nothing to feed and care for them. Corruption has indeed become a cancer-like disease that is spreading so fast among our leaders in Nigeria. There should be zero tolerance in corruption. Our anti graft agency the EFCC should swiftly visit the home and office of Bello to investigate the alleged N20 billion naira in his private account.
