The Kogi government has debunked the rumour that the state has approved the establishment of the “office of the immediate past governor”.

Usman Ododo was sworn in as the governor of the state on Saturday.

After taking his oath of office, Ododo named 16 commissioner nominees to be screened by the state House of Assembly and also appointed some aides.

On Monday, the rumour started making the rounds that the Kogi governor has approved the establishment of the “office of the immediate past governor” which will be domiciled in the government house.

Yayaha Bello is his predecessor.

However, in a statement on Tuesday, the Kogi government dispelled the rumour, saying it is the handiwork of mischief makers.

“The attention of the Kogi State Government has been drawn to a mischievous report that the Governor of Kogi State, His Excellency, Alhaji Ahmed Usman Ododo, has approved the establishment of the ‘Office of the Immediate Past Governor’ to be domiciled in the Government House,” the statement reads.

“The fake news should be disregarded as the handiwork of psychotic mischief makers, who have been thrown into confusion by the unprecedented achievements of our former Governor, His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, CON, and the realisation that the good people of Kogi State sincerely appreciate this.

“The laughable report was concocted to create disaffection and mislead the public but the authors failed woefully to confuse intelligent Nigerians.

“We thank the media for exercising restraint and detecting, on their own, that the report was fake. We, however, urge the general public to always fact-check before spreading fake news.”
