Help! Yahaya Bello has withdrawn my security details – Kogi Deputy Governor


Kogi State Deputy Governor, Simon Achuba, has said that his principal, Yahaya Bello, has exposed him to danger by withdrawing his security details.
Speaking to journalists on Monday, he said it was on Saturday he discovered that his security details had been removed when he returned from his hometown where he wanted to vote.
“I was surprised to see that all policemen attached to my house had been withdrawn. I then put a call across to the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Busari, who also expressed shock and promised to give the matter an urgent attention.
“After about an hour, I called him again but he refused to pick my call. I sent a text message to him and up till now, he has not got back to me,” he said.
According to him, although he has contacted the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Busari, the issue has not been resolved, with Busari saying he was working on the matter.
There seems to be no love lost between Achuba and Yahaya as the deputy governor said he wanted the governor to be sensitive to the will of the people in the way he governs.
He said, “When God gives you the privilege to rule a people, the people should not be taken for granted. You don’t have to use force for your policy to scale through if they are popular and people-oriented,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Director-General, Media and Publicity to the governor, Kingsley Fanwo, said it was not the state governor’s responsibility to post security details to the deputy governor.
He said, “It is not the responsibility of the governor to give security even to himself. The security heads do. So, the governor is not responsible for posting security to the deputy governor.
“So, if his claims are true, kindly get in touch with the security agencies to give explanations.”
