One of the gubernatorial aspirant of the All Progressive Congress (APC), in Kogi State, Prince Yahaya Audu has gathered more support as some political appointees in the cabinet of Governor Yahaya Bello have decided to dump the governor and joined Prince Audu.
Prince Audu is one of the younger brother of the former governor of Kogi State, late Prince Abubakar Audu.
Already, about six Commissioners and ten Special Advisers and Senior Special Assistants are set to join the moving train of Prince Yahaya Audu who is ready to restore the lost glory of the state.
Prince Audu contested for Kogi East Senatorial election under the platform of APC in the last general election.
However, all the aspirants from the state that contested in various elective positions in 2019 general election have endorsed him as their sole candidate for the 2019 Kogi State Governorship election.
Our reporter allegedly gathered that Special Adviser to the governor name withheld has resigned his appointment to join Prince Yahaya Audu.
Also, one of the Senior Special Assistant on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon Suleiman Abdulmalik tendered his resignation letter.
According to source, the reason given was the failure of the governor to pay workers and pensioners in the state and also hardship faced by some of the appointees who could not cope with the suffering of non payment of salaries and other entitlement.
Some few weeks ago, the administrator of Lokoja local government council , Alhaji Ashiru Lawal and Special Adviser to the Governor on Multilateral and Donor Agency Hon. Ibrahim Adoga were both relieved of there post by the governor.
