Kogi Debunks Establishment of the Office of Immediate Past Governor

Ibrahim Oyewale, Lokoja

The Kogi State Government has debunked the rumour making the round that Governor Usman Ododo has established the “office of immediate past governor” within the premises of the Government House in Lokoja, the state’s capital.

This was contained in a press statement that was signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Nihi Oladele.  

Oladele said: “Kogi State Government has been drawn to a mischievous report that the Governor of Kogi State, His Excellency, Mr. Ahmed Usman Ododo, has approved the establishment of the ‘Office of the Immediate Past Governor” to be domiciled in the Government House.

“The fake news should be disregarded as the handiwork of psychotic mischief makers, who have been thrown into confusion by the unprecedented achievements of our former Governor, His Excellency, Mr. Yahaya Bello, and the realisation that the good people of Kogi State sincerely appreciate this.

“The laughable report was concocted to create disaffection and mislead the public but the authors failed woefully to confuse intelligent Nigerians.

“We thank the media for exercising restraint and detecting, on their own, that the report was fake.

“We, however, urge the general public to always fact-check before spreading fake news.”
