Bello appoints new LGA administrators
As the tenure of the elected Local Government chairmen came to a halt yesterday, Kogi State Governor Alhaji Yahaya Bello has appointed caretaker administrators in their place in a ceremony that coincided with his 100 days in office.
The Governor charged the new administrators to be prudent as they were going to be monitored by his government as well as their opponents.
He admonished them to ensure all outstanding salaries arrears are cleared as Federal Government had graciously released part of the State’s bailout funds.
Bello said: “Any security issue from your LGA, I will hold you responsible. Flush out criminals from among you. It is why security chiefs are here. Every kobo of LGA funds must be accounted for. I, Yahaya Bello, will not send anyone to get money from you.Disregard any request for money from anyone however highly placed in my government.”
Continuing he said: “No one can boast they were instrumental to your being appointed. Your allegiance should be to this state and to your people at the grass roots. Our people have suffered enough
