Corrupt leaders to blame for failing to make Kogi State better and failing to transform the state despite ample opportunities during their tenure, the Administrative Secretary, Okene LGA of Kogi State, Engr. Abdullahi Shehu Lukman, said at the weekend in Abuja.

He told newsmen that despite attempts to work against the state governor, Yahaya Bello, security had improved in the state, even as over 18, 000 ghost workers were uncovered by the state government in an exercise which he said saved the state about N1. 4bn.

Lukman said any complaint of non payment of salaries could only come from ghost workers, adding: “If you were in Lokoja last year, you would notice that what we call a state capital was more or less a village in some states. The roads were so bad, you won’t believe that is state capital.”
He added that Bello had not only made government accessible  but acted on the bad roads.
