The Kogi State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lambasted Governor Yahaya Bello over the reversal of the dissolution of the State Executive Council and the Council Administrators in the 21LGA within few minute, describing it as a manifestation of delinquent governance.
The party stated that the governor’s rigmaroled decision on a sensitive issue that affects the lives of the people of the state was a hallmark of his administration brazen ineptitudeness.
This was contained in a statement signed by Achadu Dickson, Director Research and Documentation, the PDP said the weekend drama has once again reinforced the party’s position that Gov. Yahaya Bello is not fit to govern the State.
The PDP noted that the last two year of Bello’s administration, has been characterized by inconsistencies in policy making, adding that the weekend drama, has proven once again that the governor is not in charge, and does not have a mind of his own to govern a complex state like Kogi.
The party lamented the governor’s past hasty decisions to destroy all roundabouts in the state capital, embark on an endless staff screening exercise, the planned sale off of government properties, and all the governor’s other inconsistencies in making policies, has shown poor leadership and brought untold hardships on Kogites.
The PDP described Governor Bello as a kindergarten governor, whose administration lacks direction, stressing that he has no doubt driven the state to a dead end, with his once chance style of administration.
The PDP lamented that on a daily basis, Kogi State now thrives in the news all for the wrong reasons, all because Gov Bello does not have what it takes to govern a Kogi State in this age of technological advancement and sound leadership skills, required of a leader.
The PDP urged the governor to bury his ego by tendering an unreserved apology to the people of the state over his leadership inadequacies, lack of clear cut policy, and for making the state a laughing stock in the comity of States.
Rather than continue with his trial and error kind of administration, where his subordinates call the shot, the PDP called on the governor to seek further knowledge in leadership and governance.
Without mincing words, Kogi State, the PDP observed, is too big for Gov Bello to manage, noting that, the state will certainly be in more trouble if the governor is not replaced in 2019 by the PDP.
The PDP called on the governor to pay salaries of workers in the state, disagreed with the percentage payment of salaries to council workers after laying off over 80% of the workforce.
The party called on the governor to quickly meet the demand of medical doctors in the state who have been on four months strike due to non-payment of their salaries, describing the rate of death in the state following the shut down of health institutions as embarrassing.
