Kogi Gov Denies Buying Cars For Masquerades
Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has dismissed reports that he gave masquerades in Okene N2 million and vehicle each.
Speaking to state house correspondents after he observed the Ju’maat prayer at the Aso Rock mosque, Bello there was nothing of that nature at all.
“I think I’m just hearing that for the first time. But let me just tell you that in Kogi State, first we promote culture, two we don’t give millions to masquerades.
“In our culture Masquerades are ancestors, I don’t know how a masquerade will go and spend money? Is it in the grave?
“They are supposed to be spirits and I don’t know how masquerades will spend money. There is nothing of that nature at all,’’ he said.
