Gov Yahaya Bello loses PA
Kogi Governor Yahaya Bello has lost his Personal Assistant, Suleiman Abdullateef.
Abdullateef was reported to have died in the early hours of Wednesday following a brief illness.
An aide to the Governor confirmed his demise.
However, there has been no official statement from the Government as at the time of filing in this report.
Though the cause of his death was still unknown, however it would be recalled that state government has had a running battle with the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) accusing the federal government body of a ploy to ensure Covid-19 cases were recorded in the state through fraudulent means.
The NCDC and the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) have at different times criticised the government for non-cooperation, accusing it of hiding suspected cases.
On the Covid-19, the state maintained its position on the status of the state regarding the coronavirus pandemic, reiterating that the state has no known case of the virus.
