Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has sacked three top officials, including the Commissioner for Agriculture, David Apeh, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Emergency Management, Danladi Isah-Yunusa, and Maryam Salifu, part-time chairperson of Kogi State Hotels and Tourism Board.

Although no reason was given for Mr Apeh’s sack, a statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Folashade Ayoade-Arike, revealed that the governor approved the termination of his appointment with immediate effect.

The news of the sackings has sparked reactions from observers and residents of the state, with many expressing concern about the impact on the state’s development. As more details emerge, it is likely that the story will continue to generate interest and discussion.
