The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the decision of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State to dissolve and reverse the dissolution of the State Executive Council and the 21 Council Administrators within an hour as a manifestation of confusion.
The party said the Governor’s action over the weekend was clear manifestation of delinquency in governance stressing that toying with such sensitive issue as cabinet dissolution is reflection of confusion and lack of thoroughness of the APC government all over the country.
Kogi PDP state Director, Research and Documentation, Achadu Dickson, in a statement yesterday in Lokoja said, “The weekend drama has once again reinforced the party’s position that Governor Yahaya Bello is not fi t to govern the State.
“The last two year of Bello’s administration, has been characterized by inconsistencies in policy making, the weekend drama, has proven once again that the governor is not in charge, and does not have a mind of his own to govern a complex state like Kogi.
“The governor’s past hasty decisions to destroy all roundabouts in the state capital, embark on an endless staff screening exercise, the planned sale off of government properties, and all the governor’s other inconsistencies in making policies, has shown poor leadership and brought untold hardships on Kogites.
” The PDP described Bello as a kindergarten governor, whose administration lacks direction, stressing that he has no doubt driven the state to a dead end, with his “one chance” style of administration.
“On a daily basis, Kogi State now thrives in the news all for the wrong reasons, all because Governor Bello does not have what it takes to govern a Kogi State in this age of technological advancement and sound leadership skills, required of a leader.
“We urged the governor to bury his ego by tendering an unreserved apology to the people of the state over his leadership inadequacies, lack of clear cut policy, and for making the state a laughing stock in the comity of States.
“Rather than continue with his trial-and -error kind of administration, where his subordinates call the shot, we urged the governor to seek further knowledge in leadership and governance.
“Without mincing words, Kogi State is too big for Bello to manage.
The state will certainly be in more trouble if the governor is not replaced in 2019 by the PDP”, the statement said.
