Yahaya Bello, Kogi state governor, has relieved the state accountant-general of his position and directed all the permanent secretaries and heads of parastatals in the state civil service to proceed on compulsory leave.

Kingsley Fanwo, Bellos’s chief press secretary, confirmed the development in a statement, saying local government directors, treasurers, education secretaries, and cashiers were also affected.

“I wish to confirm that His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has directed that all permanent secretaries, heads of administration are to go on compulsory leave with immediate effect,” the statement read.

“The only exemptions to this category are people on acting capacity and the permanent secretary, government house.


“Also, the accountant-general has been relieved of his position, while the second in command will proceed on 30 days compulsory leave.

“At the local government level, the directors of local government (DLGs), treasurers, education secretaries and cashiers are also to proceed on compulsory leave.”

Bello, who assumed office on January 27, had earlier ordered the reinstatement of all local government chairmen sacked by the administration of Idris Wada, his predecessor.
