Money, Bad Men Misleading Yahaya Bello – Ohinoyi Of Ebiraland

By Our Correspondent



Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has been blasted by the Ohinoyi of Ebira Land, Alhaji Ado Ibrahim as being misled by money and the wrong advisers around him.

The revered traditional ruler in an interview also accused the governor of exceeding his bounds by tying to appoint a new Chief Imam of Ebiraland contrary of tradition.

“I haven’t sat with him to advise him on issues that are required to stabilise the peace of the people,” Dr. Ado Ibrahim told Sunday Trust in an interview.

“I think I should advise him on policy issues, but he gave more time to those who idolize him. He is enjoying that. That is why I cannot talk about his administration very much; I don’t know how he does it.”

“If people say he didn’t pay salaries, I cannot say why he didn’t do that. As far as I am concerned, he is paying salaries. I cannot comment on whatever they say he is doing. Whatever I want to say is that my human relation with him should not be put to shame.”

“I introduced him and favoured him in place of others. I did my own assessment of him at that time. He is a different thing today, as far as I’m concerned.”

Ohinoyi says Yahaya Bello being misled by money and bad men

On his assessment of the performance of the governor, he said:

“there is this issue of the boy not knowing what he should do because he has extremely wrong people around him. Bello is a nice young man and highly intelligent; that is why I recommended him at that time.

“The only person that could have been a better choice at that time but had no financial backing was the late secretary to Atiku. The boy is from Ihima here. People said I was supporting Bello because he is my cousin. Well, partly, that could be one reason.

“Two, he had money to do it, and that money is what has misled him so far. A good person should always put money aside and put reality in the front. Money should just be a palliative anytime you need it. For the assessment, I can’t say much, I can only talk about what people are saying and what I read in the papers.”

“I’m really trying to get my people to support his second term, but I know that they don’t want to hear me say that.”
