KOGI GOVT. DENIES RUMOUR LINKING ROUNDABOUTS DEMOLITION TO SPIRITUAL PURIFICATION

The Kogi State government has put to rest rumour linking the demolition of roundabouts in Lokoja, the state capital to spiritual purification of the state.

The new government under the leadership of Alh. Yahaya Bello had embarked on the demolition of roundabouts(file image) in Lokoja, an exercise that sparked rumour that the governor was advised by marabouts to pull down the roundabouts so as to free the state from ‘spiritual pollution’.

However, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor, Mr. Kingsley Fanwo in a statement, shot down the rumour, explaining that the demolition was primarily motivated by the desire to beautify the state capital.

He said:“The administration of Alhaji Yahaya Bello is poised to give the city a facelift by removing the substandard roundabouts within the city with the intention of replacing them with beautiful ones, befitting of its status. This administration will not live with substandard structures that misrepresent our identity as a state.”
