Mr Ohida Muhammed, APC Youth Leader in Kogi Central, has accused the party’s leaders of “distracting the governor with petty issues”.
“The APC leaders are making it difficult for the governor to do his work; they keep distracting him with very petty issues,” Muhammed told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lokoja.
He said that such distractions were unnecessary because the governor had not deviated from his resolve to serve the people.
According to him, “people, who are not relevant to the system, are the ones distracting Bello from focusing on the concerns of the poor”.
He accused unnamed national assembly members of “fabricating lies” against the governor, saying that such accusations were meant to make him lose focus.
“We have read some of these accusations and found that there is no truth in them. The Governor has done well in the area of health and agriculture and deserves an applause,” he said.
The youth leader rejected suggestions that the governor should be impeached over the double voter’s registration announced by INEC on Monday.
“The issue of double registration has been cleared by the electoral body. It said it had cancelled one registration and therefore voided one card. That should settle it,” he said.
He urged the Kogi House of Assembly to ignore such calls.
Muhammed commended the governor for carrying out a successful staff verification exercise that had eliminated ghost names and reduced the workforce to a tolerable level and urged Kogi residents to support government policies.
