Kogi: PDP Sends Strong Warning To Banks Over Yahaya Bello

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cautioned commercial banks against granting loans to the admnistration of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.

Naija News reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed the governorship election of the State for November 16th.

In a statement on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan, the party said Kogi State  was not willing to bear any responsibility for such loan facilities when Bello vacates.

The PDP accused the Yahaya Bello administration of trying to mislead banks into granting the state loans, after which it would be diverted into private accounts by chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to the party, the Bello administration has manifested so much insensitivity in owing workers as much as 36 months salary arrears.

“On our part, the PDP is committed to running a prudent, transparent and productive administration where the welfare and economic empowerment of the people is overriding; where salaries are paid promptly, where infrastructural development in critical sectors take center stage and where accountability is the watchword.

“In this regard, the PDP urges all financial watch organizations to join the people of Kogi state in monitoring all monetary activities of the Bello administration as well as all inflows into the state coffers, particularly, the N10.06 billion federal refund, which the PDP insists, must be declared and directly channeled for the payment of salaries so as not to allow the ring of APC leaders achieve their plot of diverting and stealing the money for their selfish purposes,” the statement reads.
