There has been panic across Kogi state, Nigeria over the whereabouts of Yahaya Bello, the governor.

Reports say Governor Bello had not been seen in public for over two weeks thus fueling speculations that he may be ill.Governor Yahaya Bello has reportedly not been seen for over two weeks

The speculation was further boosted by the fact that many, even in government, could not tell where he actually travelled to.

Daily Times reports sources as saying that the governor might have been flown abroad to treat an undisclosed ailment.

In his absence, all state functions have been put on hold and the report says this had left Simon Achuba, the state deputy governor, with only the duty of receiving visitors on behalf of his boss.
In reaction however, the governor’s spokesperson, Kingsley Fanwo, denied that his boss was ill.

Fanwo reportedly released a statement from the state government house urging the public not to believe the rumour.

PM NEWS quotes Fanwo as saying: “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.

“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.”

He however did not mention the specific whereabouts of the governor.
