Exposed: Ex-Kogi LGC Boss Sanni Ecomog lied, he was sacked by Gov Bello – Kogi LG APC reveals
Strong indication has emerged on the controversy surrounding the former Executive Chairman of Kogi local government area, Abdulkareem Isah Sanni (Ecomog) who was dismissed two years ago by Governor Yahaya Bello for an allegation of criminal engagement and in view of a resolution by the Kogi State House of Assembly.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, in the area has open up on the controversial suspended Executive Chairman of the Council, Abdulkareem Isah Sanni, popularly called ECOMOG, saying he was sacked as the Special Adviser on Corporate Affairs to Governor Yahaya Bello.
In a press statement to counter a purported claim by the former appointee that he resigned his appointment, a prominent stakeholder of the party in the area, Mallam Abubakar Haruna Koto, on Monday, said it was a mere face saving, having been found wanting over an alleged involvement in criminal activities while in office.
Our correspondent investigation revealed that last year’s suspension of Sanni from office as Chairman was sequel to a resolution by members of the 9th Kogi state Assembly presided over by the then Speaker, Prince Mathew Kolawole, who read a letter from Governor Bello indicting the council boss of alleged criminal activities.
According to Haruna Koto, who is also the Leader of the APC in zone A area of the local government, the embattled Sanni preempted the report of the investigation committee, and claimed to have resigned his appointment as a Special Adviser to the Governor on Corporate Affairs.
The stakeholder, however expressed gratitude to God for distancing persons of questionable characters from the All Progressives Congress, APC, noting that already the Kogi local government is a no go area for other parties.
While he enjoined them to be united and vigilant, advised against rumours being peddled around by those he called enemies of the society.
