Just in! Kogi Governor Sacks all Commissioners, Council Chairmen Over Military Items Importation Leakage
The Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has sacked all members of the state executive council and all the twenty one local government administrators.
The announcement was made by the governor at an ongoing meeting he is holding with all political appointees at the Government House Lokoja, the state capital, according to report by Premium Times.
A source at Government House said that the governor has “directed all the 15 commissioners and 21 local government administrators to submit the keys to their official vehicles to the Secretary to State Government (SSG), as he dissolves State Executive Council”.
The source, who declined to be named because he is not permitted to speak to the press also said Mr. Bello told the gathering that “new commissioners and administrators are to be announced immediately.”
Analysts are suggesting that the sack may not be unconnected with the leakage of military items allegedly imported by the governor.
