The Fearless Political Warrior, Dino Melaye, Shakes The Entire Nation Again, Sends Warning Signal To A Prodigal APC Governor

Senator Dino Melaye has sent a strong warning message to the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, over his plan to sell monuments that belong to the State, under the disguise of wanting to boost the economy of the State.

This warning was contained in a Press statement issued by the Legislator, on Tuesday night, which was made available to Post-Nigeria.

The Statement reads: “There is no gainsaying the fact that Kogi State is a Civil Service State. Although, blessed with resources that remain untapped, the State has avoidably relied on allocations from Abuja to keep body and soul together over the years.”

“Despite a poor Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) profile occasioned by the foregoing coupled with bad governance syndrome, Kogi has remained one of the underdeveloped States of the Federation, irrespective of its natural endowments.

“Against this backdrop, he said it is unthinkable that the current State Government under Governor Yahaya Bello, will contemplate trading off what is left of Kogi’s glory for momentary financial gains under the pretext of bolstering the State’s finances.

“I therefore, urge the Kogi State Governor not to sell as planned, the following edifices or legacies built by the past administrations in the Confluence State, as doing so will portray Yahaya Bello as a prodigal son of the State.

“The State properties/legacies are Kogi House in Abuja; Mega Terminal Park; Kogi State Liaison Houses in Kaduna and Lagos; Commissioner Quarters; State Assembly Quarters; and Confluence Beach Hotel.

“For the records, no past Governor of Kogi State since inception, contemplated selling the State’s monuments or properties like the ones listed above and as bequeathed by successive administrations, hence Bello must listen to the voice of reason otherwise his prodigal decision will be challenged in court by me as a representative of the people”, Melaye concluded.
