Dino Melaye, Senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, on Saturday raised the alarm over the latest move by the State Governor, Yahaya Bello, ahead of the state’s governorship election.
Melaye said Bello requested a N30bn loan from the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.
In a tweet, the controversial lawmaker alleged that the loan was meant to prosecute the governor’s second term campaign.
He, however, cautioned the country’s apex bank against granting the loan to the governor, who he described as “squandermania.”
“Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State requesting N30bn from CBN. I have written the CBN Governor not to release the money to the squandermania, akotileta Gov.
“He is trying to raise money for the November election. #stopGYBmovement,” he tweeted.
