There has been apprehension in Kogi following the non-appearance of Governor Yahaya Bello in the public for close to two weeks.
the sudden disappearance of the Governor has fuelled speculations that the Governor may have been flown abroad to treat some undisclosed ailment.
However, the Director General, bureau of Communications, Kingsley Fanwo, has denied that the governor is nursing any ailment.
In a statement signed by Fanwo and sent to AN24, called for calm and asked Kogi citizens to disregard “the rumour,” describing it as lacking any iota of truth.
“My attention has been drawn to the spurious rumour that there are concerns over the health of the Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.
“I want to state clearly here for the avoidance of doubt that the rumour lacks any iota of truth. It is a reflection of the depth the enemies of Kogi State have gone in their desperate angst against fate.
Fanwo added, “The governor is hale and hearty, healthy and unwavering in his vigour to make Kogi State the Confluence of Excellence.
“I urge all Kogites of goodwill to discountenance the rumour as His Excellency will return from his two weeks break on the 12th of November, 2016.”
