Deputy Governor to Kogi State, Elder Simon Achuba, has shut down report claiming he had dumped the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) over feud with his principal Governor Yahaya Bello.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Deputy Governor, Sylvester Akor, debunked this while speaking to dailypost on Thursday evening.
The CPS described the rumour of his principal’s defection to another party as wicked, noting that it was coming from the pit of mischief makers.
“My boss, Elder Simon Achuba is still a loyal member of the APC and has no plan to decamp, as is been thought by those who do not mean well for the state that he has dumped the APC” he noted.
It would be recalled that the Kogi State Deputy Governor has had a running battle with his boss, Governor Yahaya Bello with many alleging that the relationship was no longer cordial.
It is gathered that the embattled Deputy Governor is hardly seen in a public function as it was alleged that, he is no longer in the good book of the Governor.
According to sources, the Deputy Governor last collected salary in February, with his impress stopped since March.
