Following reports that the State House of Assembly was in crises due to leadership tussle, Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, on Wednesday, said that contrary to the speculations, there is absolute peace in the state.
The governor made the statement while addressing State House correspondents after meeting with the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari at the Presidential Villa, in Abuja.
Bello said that he was not aware of any sort of crisis in the state as the State House of Assembly was sitting and all legislative works were ongoing.
Bello said, “My house is sitting and we have absolute peace in Kogi state, I am not aware of that. The National Assembly was supposed to have taken over, the state is absolutely in peace and the legislative activities are ongoing.
“I am the executive and the executive is functioning and we are doing the best we can, so legislature is their own business and they are on it.
“I have a speaker that is sitting right now. So I don’t know if there is any problem there,” he added
On the bailout funds the state allegedly applied for, the governor said, “We applied for it and it’s under processing right now I have not gotten any bail-out yet.
“Well I think to the best of my knowledge, the last administration either did not go on with the process properly, we are now to trying to correct whatever was not done properly, so that we can access it for our people.”
