Gov Yahya Bello Wants To Assassinate Me – Dino Melaye

Senator Dino Melaye, on Saturday, accused the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, of plotting to assassinate him for fighting for the state’s workers and pensioners.

Dino, while addressing women of Kogi West senatorial district, on a peaceful protest at Aiyetoro-Gbede, noted that workers and pensioners in the state were suffering and dying, following the non-payment of 15-month salaries and pensions by the governor.

The tough-talking senator said,
“Yahaya Bello collected N20bn from the Federal Government as bailout fund. Still, he refused to settle workers. He also collected N11bn from the Paris Club fund. Still, he refused to pay workers and pensioners.

“Children can no longer go to school. Tenants can no longer pay their house rent. Enough is enough, the people of Kogi State are tired of this government.

“The advent of Yahaya Bello as governor and Taofiq Isa as local government administrator in the political history of Kogi State has brought this unfortunate socio-political paradigm shift.”
