Governor Yahaya Bello has annulled the Vice Chancellor of Kogi State University, Prof Abdulkadir and the Rector of Kogi State Polytechnic, Prof Atureta over an alleged non-compliance to his directive.
According to reports, the Governor claimed that the two top officials’ non-compliance with the Treasury Single Account (TSA) policy of the state government amounted to disobedience.
The state’s Commissioner for Information and Communication, Kingsley Fanwo confirmed the hiatus of the two top officials and also revealed that the Chief Medical Director of the State Specialist Hospital, Dr Ahmed Attah was also halted for a similar offence on February 7.
Fanwo urged top management of agencies in the state to fully kowtow with the new financial guidelines as no one will be harbored when found wanting. He added that Governor Yahaya Bello was introducing the policies in the best interest of the system.
