APC Governor Declared Missing, Deputy Takes Over, Set To Be Sworn In

Tension and anxiety has greeted the sudden disappearance of the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, following his non-appearance in public functions, in the last two weeks, with many speculating that the Governor might be terribly sick.

All State functions have been put on hold, leaving the Deputy Governor, Simon Achuba, with only the duty of receiving visitors on behalf of his Boss, Post-Nigeria gathered.

The Governor, had absconded from his duty post, without prior notice to the State House of Assembly.

However, the Governor’s Spokesman, Kingsley Fanwo, has denied that his Boss is nursing any ailment.

In a statement issued on Sunday night, Fanwo, urged the public to discountenance “the rumour”, describing it as lacking any iota of truth.

“My attention has been drawn to the spurious rumour, that there are concerns over the health of the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.

“I want to state clearly here for the avoidance of doubt, that the rumour lacks any iota of truth. It is a reflection of the depth the enemies of Kogi State have gone in their desperate angst against fate.

Fanwo added, “The Governor is hale and hearty, healthy, and unwavering in his vigour to make Kogi State the Confluence of Excellence.

“I urge all Kogites of goodwill, to discountenance the rumour, as His Excellency will return from his two weeks break on the 12th of November, 2016.”
