Kogi, building strong anti-corruption structures- Governor’s aide by Mr Nice : 12:1 am On 8 Aug 2016
The Chief Press Secretary to the Kogi State
Governor, Kingsley Fanwo has dismissed
allegations of graft against the Governor,
Yahaya Bello, saying the Governor is
building anti-corruption platforms in all
government ministries, agencies and
Fanwo said the allegations were sponsored
by people who are ignorant of happenings in
the State.
Addressing a group of select journalists
after a Kogi Concerned Group meeting in
Abuja, Fanwo said the Governor is “totally
against corruption”.
The spokesman said those allegations were
unsubstantiated as they were figments of
the sponsors' imagination.
He said: “We have read those allegations by
some faceless groups and we have decided
to concentrate on building the dream of the
Governor for a great Confluence State. We
are conscious of the fact that opponents of
the present administration have been jolted
by the progress the Governor is making.
Governor Yahaya Bello is changing the face
of governance in the State.
"Government is monitoring ongoing road
projects across the state to ensure that the
people derive value for money. More road
rehabilitation contracts will also be awarded
soon. The Governor has said he would only
award contracts for the projects covered in
the 2016 budget, except in cases of
"The Ministry of Finance and also the
Ministry of Budget are collaborating
effectively to ensure fiscal discipline and
good budget performance. Due process were
followed in awarding all of the contracts”.
Fanwo also said the Ministry of Environment
has been strengthened to provide enough
capacity to deal with issues concerning the
environment and hygiene, saying Kogi is now
one of the states working towards a cleaner
and safer environment.
"Our Commissioner for Environment is one
of the most resourceful around. She has
given spine to the New Direction drive for a
saner, cleaner and safer environment. Kogi
is poised to tackle environmental hazards
and possible flooding. The flooding that
devastated the Kabba community over the
weekend is receiving prompt attention from
When asked about the allegations of fraud
against the Governor and some key officials
in his government, the spokesman of the
Governor said the allegations were “untrue,
malicious, ludicrous and unintelligent”,
saying they were “feeble constructions by
people who are intimidated by the giant
strides of the present administration in the
“I do not want to go into details because I
know some of these cases are already in
court. Our image is not at stake, what is at
stake is the credibility of newspapers that
publish unfounded stories. The Government
of Kogi State is one of the most transparent
in the country”, he said.
Fanwo accused the sponsors of the
allegations of corruption as “fathomable
Liars and architects of falsehood”, saying
the Governor cannot be distracted from his
laudable projects and programs for the
development of the State.
“I have said it before and I will say it again,
that the desperation is exasperated by the
upcoming Supreme Court hearing and
judgement. They did the same before the
Lower Tribunal judgement. They repeated it
prior to the Appellate Court judgement. Now,
they have started their wild goose chase
thinking the Supreme Court will buy into
their blackmail. Governor Yahaya Bello is
unmoved by the evil propaganda against his
government. Truth is constant”.
He said workers who were yet to be paid
were those who had issues to clear with the
screening committee, assuring that those
who were able to prove their cases will be
cleared and promptly paid as the
government of Alh. Yahaya Bello is
committed to the welfare and efficiency of
the civil service as “partners in delivering
the quickwins of the New Direction Agenda”. www.vanguardngr.com/2016/08/kogi-building-strong-anti-corruption-structures-governors-aide/
