Dino Melaye, the Senator representing Kogi West, has said that Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi state, will end up in prison for alleged corruption.
In a tweet sent out via the Senator’s Twitter account on Tuesday, Melaye said he will be heading to court to sue Bello and members of the State House of Assembly over “the illegality of the L.G caretaker chairmen.”
Backstory: On at least two occasions, Governor Bello has extended the tenure of the transition committee chairmen of the 21 local governments in the state by six months
The last extension came via a letter to the Assembly in October 2018 where Bello stated that there were no funds to conduct elections at the local government level.
As a result of the cited financial difficulties, he extended the tenures of the transition committees in all local government areas.
