Drama as Kogi Governor Dissolved Cabinet,Â Reverses Self
By Yekini Jimoh in Lokoja
It was a drama yesterday when the Governor of Kogi State,Â Alhaji Yahaya Bello, dissolved his cabinet and less than 30 minute later, he reversed his decision.Â Â
The governor who arrived in Lokoja, the state capital yesterday from Abuja, was expected to dissolve his cabinet last Saturday.Â
However, during yesterdayâ€™s meeting at the Glass House Lokoja,Â the governor formerly sacked his 15Â commissioners and the 21 local government administrators.Â Â
He also directed that all affected officials should summit the keys of their official vehicles to the Secretary to State Government (SSG), Mrs. Folashade Arike.
Â However,Â less than 30 minutes after,Â the governor reversed his decision.Â Â
Rather, he said all members would continue to work with him as he directed them to maintain status quo, announcing their return to office just before the end of the meeting.Â Â
The governor demanded better performance and better relationship between the appointees and the masses.
Â Meanwhile, the Director General Media and Publicity to the governor, Mr. Kingsly Fanwo, in a chat with journalists, said: â€œThe governor has reversed himself on the directive on dissolution.â€
