The PDP disclosed that governor Yahaya Bello having run state aground financially said further loans given to him will go into a private pocket and the people of Kogi now living will suffer 25 years for it re-payment.
The PDP disclosed that its concern is for the coming generation and those yet unborn, explained that governor Bello has destroyed the present and future of the state.
