‘I Am Not Owing Workers Any Dime’ – Yahaya Bello Speaks After Election Victory by bestdudes: 1:08pm On Nov 19


The Kogi State Governor-Elect, Yahaya Bello, on Tuesday, rubbished claims that he was owing salaries, stressing that such were “lies.”

Bello said his administration met salary backlog owed workers in the state, but insisted that his administration was not owing workers.

The governor-elect, who said this while featuring on Channels Television, also alleged that thugs of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, stabbed a resident after he was declared winner of Saturday’s election.

Bello also alleged that the wife of his deputy was also shot at after he emerged winner of the election.

He said: “All these reports of me owing salaries are lies. Past governors of Kogi State were owning salaries starting from Audu to my immediate predecessor. Kogi state is not owning any dime at the state level, what is left is the ten percent from the previous government.

“As for El-Rufai kneeling, he was begging that Kogi people should forgive Bello for ensuring security and ensuring the state was peaceful and not because he could not pay salaries.”

On the claim of people being killed during the election, Bello said: “After I was declared winner, a PDP thug stabbed somebody and ran into the house of their women leader but he was caught and dealt with.

“My deputy governor-elect’s wife was shot at but thank God she didn’t die, the police are looking into it and would bring the culprits to book.”

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had on Monday declared Governor Yahaya Bello of the All Progressives Congress, APC, winner of the Saturday’s governorship election in the state.

INEC’s Returning Officer in the state, Prof. Ibrahim Garuba had declared Bello winner after polling 406,222 votes to defeat his closest rival, Musa Wada of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who scored 189,704 votes.

Love speech:
Yaya bello has paid Kogi worker's salary. He's not owing anybody.
There is no violence in Kogi election. Everywhere was as peaceful as Yaya bello.

May the lives of all the political supporters of APC be as peaceful as they conducted themselves in the election.

Calling Nigeria a zoo Nation is understatement.
Animal don't eat follow animal as what we are witnessing in Nigeria.
It is sad, it is barbaric. He has admitted to the killing of PDP women leader, I am sure nothing will happen to him.
Injustice in Nigeria is too much to bear, and no one cares to help.

We are in deep shit

why not say this before the election, Is government not continuous why will he say it was the previous PDP government that was owning.
well the people of kogi has made their choice they should live with the consequence of their actions.

“As for El-Rufai kneeling, he was begging that Kogi people should forgive Bello for ensuring security and ensuring the state was peaceful and not because he could not pay salaries.”

Are you kidney me.

On the claim of people being killed during the election, Bello said: “After I was declared winner, a PDP thug stabbed somebody and ran into the house of their women leader but he was caught and dealt with.

How was he dealt with, you mean he was killed and you as the number 1 citizen is happy that one of your idigines was killed.

Just get a Kogi girl, go to her family house. Price very well they will accept the little money you bring because famine is coming to Kogi state.

The family will say at all at all na winch and they will collect the money you brought.


Happy married life.

Now back to Kogi state people, Hmmm brace up. My prayers are with you guys.
