LOCAL GOVERNMENT AUTHONOMY: Yahaya Bello Does Not Interfere With Local Government Administration In Kogi State.

Yahaya Bello.


The attention of the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello and the State Government,  has been drawn to a malicious story going round on social media with the rider; Breaking ICPC and EFCC set to invite 21 Local Government Caretaker Chairmen and Director Of Local Government in Kogi State over the illegal withdrawal of 90million each from the 21 Local Government Areas Of Kogi State. 


This politically motivated falsehood with intent to mislead the people should be ignored by the general public as it is unfounded and not true. 

His Excellency, Yahaya Bello has always practiced autonomy for Local Government Areas in the state even before the new Nigerian Financial Intelligent Unit, NFIU directive and cannot start to undo such a transparent approach to governance now that it is backed by Executive Order. 

If the spurious petition and petitioners are found to be real, the State Government may consider appropriate legal actions against the perpetrators for such making and spreading fake news which constitutes cybercrimes.
