The Delta State chapter of the All Progressives Congress is accusing former Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, of being the brain behind the suspended CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele’s participation in the APC presidential primary to scuttle President Bola Tinubu’s ambition.
The claim was disclosed in a letter written to the President.
The letter, which was made available to journalists was signed by state APC Secretary, Inana Michael; Delta North Chairman, Tom Onah; South Chairman, Nelson Ogharama, and Central Chairman, Michael Orunefe.
The Delta APC leaders alleged that on the night of the APC convention, Omo-Agege instructed Delta delegates to vote against Tinubu who he alleged stood no chance against their anointed candidate.
And in Kano state, the governor there, Abba Yusuf has declared that his government will publish names of those that were allocated lands belonging to public places that include schools and hospitals illegally.
He stated this while responding to questions from journalists on the current demolition spree taking place across Kano.
The governor expressed disgust over the unfortunate manner with which lands belonging to schools that were yet to be developed are acquired by those in authority and allocated to families and friends to the detriment of the public.
He says such lands should have been utilized for development of the schools by building hostels, laboratories and sports facilities for the students.
Similarly, the Taraba State Governor Agbu Kefas has constituted a nine-member committee to review the activities of the now dissolved various Boards and Commissions that sat in the state from 2019 to date.
The move is perceived in certain quarters to signal the start of the probe of the immediate past administration of the former governor, Darius Ishaku.
The directive is contained in a press statement released in Jalingo and signed by the Secretary to the Government of the State, Chief Gibeon-Timothy Kataps, and made available to journalists.
The review committee, which is headed by the state Auditor-General, Polycarp Iranius, according to the statement, is to determine the performance of all the board/commissions and the inflows/outflows of funds of the board/commissions within the period.
