Kogi Governor Sacks Cabinet, Reverses Decision
Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State threw the political landscape in the state into confusion on Sunday when he sacked all his commissioners and Local Government administrators in the state.
But less than 30 minutes, Governor Bello reversed his decision.
The governor reportedly embarked on the decision to sack the officials following last week’s news of arms importation into the state.
Bello was said to be infuriated that the news got out to the public.
The governor, who arrived Lokoja, the state capital, from Abuja, was expected to dissolve his cabinet last Saturday.
However, during Sunday’s meeting at Glass House Lokoja, the governor formerly sacked his 15 Commissioners and the 21 LGA administrators .
The governor had also directed that all affected officials are to submit the keys to their official vehicles to the Secretary to State Government, Dr. Folashade Arike.
However, less than 30 minutes after the governor’s mind was reset.
Instead, he said all members would continue to work with him as he directed that all status quo be maintained even as he announced the return to office of all commissioners and administrators.
The governor demanded better performance and better relationship between the appointees and the masses.
