Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has debunked media reports on a supposedly domestic disagreement between him and the first lady Hajia Rashida Bello.
The chief press secretary to the Governor Onogwu Muhammed in a statement
described the reports alleging cracks in the Governor’s household as “concocted falsehood”.
The statement denied reports making the round that the first lady has moved out of the government house, insisting that “Governor Yahaya Bello is in full control of his household, the same way he holds in firm grip the affairs of the state.
The statement reads in part,
“Our attention has been drawn to an online publication with the rider ‘Trouble in Kogi State as the first lady, Rashida Bello, allegedly moves out of government house’.
“For lack of formidable tool of distractions, the online medium struggling hard for traffic has come out with a concocted falsehood alleging a crack in the household of his Excellency, Governor Yahaya Bello.
The said publication laced with lies and crooked fallacy detailed how the First Lady, Hajia Rashida Bello has moved out of the Government House in what the merchants of mischief painted as a revolt against the ADC to the governor.
This reaction is coming out not in reverence of the amorphous medium but a call to the general public to disregard as tissue of lie the malicious fabrication.
According to the statement,this cowardly medium and their sponsors should have taken on the Governor on his development agenda instead of resorting to a devilish campaign of calumny aimed at staining the sparkling profile of the governor.
It’s reiterate unequivocally that there was no crack whatsoever in the home and government of his excellency. The general public particularly citizens of Kogi state are enjoined to discard the purported information as mere piece of mischievous antics given life by idle, disgruntled and undesirable elements.
The avalanche of aides working with the Governor are professionally trained individuals with proven records of discipline, diligence and focused dispositions.
