PPA Chairman ‘knocks’ Yahaya Bello over attack on Catholic Bishops


National Chairman of the Peoples Progressives Alliance (PPA), Peter Ameh, has described the attack on Catholic Bishops by Kogi state Governor, Yahaya Bello, as “shameful.”

DAILY POST recalls that the Bishops had told President Buhari that he was losing the support Nigerians gave him during the 2015 elections, but the Kogi governor felt differently and said only looters and those that carried the country’s funds in private jets to South Africa were angry with President Muhammadu Buhari.

However, speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Monday, Ameh, who is also an indigene of Kogi State, said: “I am really rattled and baffled by the unwarranted attack by the non performing governor of Kogi, a governor whose antecedent has shown that he lacks God-fearing characteristics because it is on record that he remains the governor with the highest number of months for non salary payment and also for non performance despite the huge amount of both internal and federally generated revenue.

“Bello, without shame, went straight to attack the Catholic Bishops over an advice to the president because he thinks or believes that the only way he can return as governor of Kogi state is through presidential assistance and anointing like 2015, but with or without Buhari,

“Yahaya Bello will be rejected and voted out come 2019 for his incompetence, carelessness, lack of vision and accountability.”
