PDP and Wada are challenging the declaration of Yahaya Bello of the APC as winner of the November 16, 2019 governorship election held in the state.

Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has sacked the Vice Chancellor of the Kogi State University, Ayangba, Prof Mohammed Abdulkadir.

A statement by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Dr Folasade Ayoade, in Lokoja on Tuesday, also announced the removal of Prof. Mohammed Atureta as the Rector of the Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja.

Both Abdulkadir and Atureta had earlier in February been placed on indefinite suspension for ignoring the governor’s directive on Single Treasury Account (TSA).


It further said that the governor had approved the appointment of Prof. Marietu Tenuche as the Acting Vice Chancellor of the university while Dr. Salisu Usman would act as the Rector of the polytechnic.

Tenuche was a former Deputy Vice Chancellor of the institution while Abdulkadir has barely five months to complete his tenure as vice chancellor of the university.

The statement said that the appointments took immediate effect while all handing and taking over should also be completed immediately.
