Kogi State government has rubbished rumours making the round in some section of the media over the ill-health of the state governor Yahaya Bello.
In a statement, the director genegal on media, Kingsley Fanwo, described the remour as untrue, explaining that the state governor had embarked on a two weeks break and will return next week.
“My attention has been drawn to the spurious rumour doing the round that there are concerns over the health of the Kogi State Governor, Alh. Yahaya Bello,” said Fanwo.
“I want to state clearly here for the avoidance of doubt that the rumour lacks any iota of truth. It is a reflection of the depth the enemies of Kogi State have gone in their desperate angst against fate.
“To put the record straight, the Governor is hale and hearty, healthy and unwavering in his vigour to make Kogi State the Confluence of Excellence.
“I urge all Kogites of goodwill to discountenance the rumour as His Excellency will return from his two weeks break on the 12th of November, 2016.
“Let me also thank the good people of Kogi State for their love and sense of solidarity. Thanks and God bless Kogi State,” he concluded.
