Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello yesterday reacted to a video of Senator Dino Melaye (Kogi West), saying the lawmaker “is a noise-maker”, who cannot distract him.
Melaye released a video on the Instagram, in which he was seen singing, dancing and mocking the governor.
Bello, who spoke with State House correspondents on the sidelines of the expended National Economic Council meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, claimed that he had not seen the video as he was too busy to listen to a noise-maker.
Bello said: “I don’t know there is any such video from anybody; I am not aware. Maybe, you may tell me what the video is all about. I am not aware if there is any such video.
“You see, Kogi State is a very complex state and I took it over when things were really bad and I am doing my best to ensure that we give quality service to the good people of Kogi State.
“So, any noise-maker out there is just disturbing himself. So, I just focused on the job as the executive governor of Kogi State and I am doing my best and the people of Kogi State really appreciate my services to them.”
On the attack in Kogi, he said: “It was a very pathetic situation where about 12 people were killed and I visited that place. It is a place that was neglected by their own people and it was unfortunate that that incident happened and we have constituted Judicial Panel of Inquiry to look into the immediate and remote cause of that attack because this is not the first time that an attack is happening in that particular area.
“In 2014, it happened where lives and property were destroyed but thank God with the support of the military, police and other security agencies were able to quickly move into action and then that particular incident had been stopped.
“As we speak, arrests are being made and investigations are on and by the time the Judicial Panel of Inquiry comes up with its own findings and recommendations, l am sure there will be a lasting solution to that crisis.”
