Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has just touched down in Nigeria after a two-week vacation abroad, Pulse can exclusively report.
Pulse was the first and only medium to report that the Kogi Governor had duly obtained permission from the State House of Assembly before proceeding on vacation abroad.
The mainstream media and several other outlets had erroneously reported that the Governor was terminally ill and had fled his State unannounced.
Days later, Pulse posted the Governor's letter seeking permission from the legislature to travel abroad.
Bello had also handed over the reins to his deputy, Simon Achuba, before leaving the country.
“The Governor is abroad after taking due permission from the House of Assembly. The Governor is not in any clinic or any hospital. He’s 100 percent in good health. There is nothing wrong with the Kogi State Governor”, said Gbenga Olorunpomi who is the Senior Special Assistant on Electronic Media to the Executive Governor of Kogi State.
