The Guardian (Nigeria) - - NEWS - From Em­manuel Ande, Yola

THekogi Dtate Deputy Gover­nor Mr. Si­mon Achuba, has cleared his boss Gover­nor Ya­haya Bello, of the al­le­ga­tions that he was be­hind the re­called process of sen­a­tor Dino Me­laye, ini­ti­ated by his con­stituency.

The Achuba told jour­nal­ists in Yola yes­ter­day that the al­le­ga­tions of the gover­nor spon­sor­ing the re­call of sen­a­tor Me­laye was fab­ri­cated by mis­chievous peo­ple to di­vert at­ten­tion from the main is­sue.

“The gover­nor has no hand in sen­a­tor Me­laye’s re­call process, the sen­a­tor should face In­de­pen­dent Na­tional Elec­toral Com­mis­sion (INEC) over his po­lit­i­cal tragedy and leave the gover- nor alone,” he stated.

On why the gover­nor is hav­ing prob­lems with some politi­cians in Kogi State, Achuba said that the fight against cor­rup­tion and de­mand for trans­parency and ac­count­abil­ity by the present ad­min­is­tra­tion was re­spon­si­ble for the out­cry against the gover­nor.

“My boss (Bello) is a man that be­lieve in trans­parency and ac­count­abil­ity and Some gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials in cor­rob­o­ra­tion with some politi­cians think that gov­ern­ment house us a place to share free money, so they are not happy be­cause this gov­ern­ment has change that un­demo­cratic sys­tem of share-ring pub­lic funds that is meant for de­vel­op­ment,” he said.
