Mr. Abba Kyari, the Chief of Staff to Mr. Muhammadu Buhari, has assumed Mr. Yahaya Bello, kogi state Governor as a bad market to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This newspaper learned that the action of the COS is causing huge panic and discomfort at the state government house Lokoja.
The COS we learned is making sure that Buhari does not have anything to do with Bello in order to protect the president reputation and integrity.
Bello has become very unpopular in kogi state, with his administration characterized by non payment of Salaries and subjecting the state civil service to an untold hardship.
Bello has been accused of embezzling state allocation, bailout funds and Paris club, this we learned has angered the Buhari Chief of Staff.
A source say the action of Bello is not acceptable to Buhari who does not tolerate non payment of salaries and corruption.
Despite Buhari directive to governors to use bailout funds to pay salaries, Bello refused to pay workers in the state.
An action that has since angered the presidency.
A source in the presidency who did not want to be mentioned say Bello does not represent what the APC represents describing him as a bad market to the party.
He described Bello’s administration as typical of a plague on the Kogi people and a disaster of epic magnitude for the party.
Governor Yahaya Bello has battered the image of the APC in Kogi to the extent that it defies every attempt at rehabilitation. Without mincing words, Bello is the worst dreg of convoluted avarice and indefatigable selfishness.
Yahaya Bello’s style of leadership and the complaints of Kogites emanating from the state is causing Abba Kyari a great deal of concern and he has moved to distance the Governor from the President.
