Mr. Yahaya Bello, the Kogi State Governor has purchased SUV vehicle to be used for his campaign.
This is even as the Governor is owing civil service over 38 months salaries.
Bello is notorious for not paying salaries while some staff of the state have committed suicide for non payment of their salaries.
Checks by WEST AFRICA REPORTERS (WAR) shows the car is sold for 16,500 USD – N5.9 million equivalent.
Bello who is the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the November 16 kogi state governorship election has vowed to be re – elected for the second term despite he is unpopular in the state.
Mr. Muhammadu Buhari, the Nigeria president last week approved the sum of N10 billion to be paid to the state and asked the Senate to give their approval.
An action that generated lots of critiques with many saying the money was giving for vote buying in order to rig the election in favour of Bello.
