Kogi State governor and National Youth Coordinator of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Yahaya Bello, has said there are some people and agencies sabotaging President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Bello spoke yesterday on an Arise Television programme to give an insight into the preparedness of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the commencement of campaigns for the forthcoming 2023 general election.
When asked for his comment on the alarming debt ratio, the high rate of youth unemployment and the worrying exodus of medical workers under the Buhari administration as revealed recently by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), Bello said the statistics was questionable.
The Kogi State governor said President Buhari did not rejig the NBS.
He said: “Most times, we question and query the statistics because I am most affected, sometimes. For instance, the NBS, or in the media or out there, people used to say that Kogi State is owing salaries or not paying salaries.
“Even an elite once put it on his Facebook post that I was owing salaries of 18 or 12 months. And that person is supposed to be a credible leader in his own right. And within a few hours, he had to put down that information. So, there is information out there that is misleading.
“But that is not to say there are no areas to be improved upon in this government. But the fact is that there are saboteurs. Still, in the midst of all of that, the country is moving on. The President continues to improve on our infrastructure.”
