Kogi based Human Rights Activist and Director, Centre For Human Right and Conflict Resolution (CHCR) Idris Miliki has challenged Kogi State governor,
Government towards the conduct of Local Government election noted that the current administration of local government in Kogi State was illegal, unconstitutional, null and void.
He faulted the position of the State House of Assembly to extend the tenure of Local Government administrators, saying ”the world is watching all the illegalities perpetuated by Governor Bello’s administration.”
“We have a government that has been in power for 20 months, yet they don’t have timetable to conduct Local Government election. The government is busy saying they don’t have money, but yet they collected N10billion on behalf of Local Government. What did they use the money for? Where are the Councillors to make bye laws for Local Government to generate revenues?
“Since they collected N10billion on behalf of Local Government, why can’t the current administration use part of the money to conduct Local Government election? Sincerely, there is something beyond the eyes that we don’t know which is going on in Kogi State.
