How Gov. Yahaya Bello Sacked & Reinstated His Cabinet Members

Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, on Sunday sacked all the members of his cabinet, only to subsequently make a turnround.

The governor had directed all the commissioners and local government administrators to hand over necessary documents and government properties to Folasade Ayoade, secretary to the state government.

Petra Onyegbule, chief press secretary to the governor, had said the governor announced the sack during the state executive council meeting held in Lokoja, the state capital, on Sunday.

While the dust raised by the development was yet to settle, Bello recalled the officials, due to internal pressure.

Sources say the governor is accusing some of his Commissioners and others of leaking information about things happening inside his government to Senator Dino Melaye.
