Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has described Senator Dino Melaye and others calling for his resignation as ”jokers.”
Melaye, some other top members of the All Progressives Congress, APC had called for the governor’s resignation due to accusations that he engaged in double voter registration.
Bello through his Director General on Media, Kingsley Fanwo, said he will not resign.
“Resignation is completely out of the options and the Governor will continue his good work for the people of Kogi State. They and their corrupt sponsors should wait till 2019.
“The Governor will not resign. We have listened to INEC and we respect their decisions. Now is time for the Commission to fast-track the transfer of the PVC of the Governor to Kogi State from Abuja”, he stated.
