The political activist argued that Yahaya Bello’s deal allegedly orchestrated and or coordinated to defraud and milk Kogi State is what led to this harsh decision from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, saying “it’s unfortunate that this is happening at a time when Civil Servants & Pensioners are committing suicide due to hunger & starvation.
Speaking in his Abuja Residence, Comrade Okai tasked the State Governor to tender a public apology to the entire State, stating that the Federal High Court’s decision to grant EFCC request to return the money back to CBN is a big blow on the state and her economy.
