There was anxiety in Kogi State on
Sunday following the non-appearance of Governor Yahaya Bello in public in the
last two weeks.

Sources said the governor might
have been flown abroad to treat an undisclosed ailment.

All state functions have been put
on hold leaving the Deputy Governor, Simon Achuba, with only the duty of
receiving visitors on behalf of his boss.

However, the governor’s spokesman,
Kingsley Fanwo, has denied that the governor is nursing any ailment.

In a statement issued on Sunday night,
Fanwo urged the public to discountenance “the rumour,” describing it as lacking
any iota of truth.

“My attention has been drawn to the
spurious rumour that there are concerns over the health of the Kogi State
Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.

“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.

Fanwo added, “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.”
