Major Crisis In Government House, As Tyrannical APC Governor Suffers Serious Attack

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kogi State, on Thursday, January 19, took a swipe at the State Governor, Yahaya Bello, over the recent “mass sack of workers”, in the State’s Civil service.

The party said it was erroneous for the government to assume that all the affected civil servants in the just concluded staff verification, were ghost workers.

The PDP in a statement issued in Lokoja by its Director of Research and Documentation, Dickson Achadu, lamented the trauma and anxiety the recent screening report released by the government, caused workers in the State.

It lamented the number of deaths among workers, during the screening exercise that lasted for over a year, saying that the sack of about 70 percent of the State’s labour force in the final screening report released by the government, was the “height of wickedness by the government against its citizens.”

However, in a swift reaction, the Governor, through his Media Aide, Evangelist Kingsley Fanwo, descended verbally on the State chapter of the PDP, describing it as a shameless entity, with a knack for infantile jealously.

Bello, who was reacting to the spate of criticisms showered on him by the party, over the staff verification exercise conducted in the State recently, said the party was merely being jealous of the achievements of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in re-positioning the State’s civil service.

The statement reads: “We sympathise with the PDP over its frustrations. First, the party was roundly defeated in the State during the last round of elections, and now the Governor has achieved a major feat of re-positioning the civil service within his first year in office, against the failure of PDP to achieve same in 12 years.

“To enlighten the PDP, the staff audit is not only about removing ghost workers from the payrolls, but to develop data for pension administration and electronic register. We are enthroning positive change in the service.

“Also, the PDP administrations between 2003 and 2015, supervised the infestation of the civil service with unprecedented corruption. Some of the party leaders loaded the government payrolls with names of their underage children and relatives.”
