Governor Yahaya Bello? of Kogi State on Wednesday said that the state was yet to receive any bail-out fund from the Federal Government.

Bello, who made the remark while fielding questions from State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, was, however, hopeful that the state government would access the fund soon.

“We applied for it and its under processing, so right now I have not gotten any bail-out yet,” he said.

The governor said he was working hard to correct all improper processes by ?the ?last administration in order to access the fund from the Federal Government.

He stated that: “The last administration either did not go on with the process properly, which we are doing now to correct whatever was not done properly, so that we can access it for our people.”


On the crisis in the state House of Assembly, Bello said Kogi remains peaceful.

“My house is sitting and we have absolute peace in Kogi State. I am not aware of that; the National Assembly is supposed to have taken over, but the state is absolutely in peace and the legislative activities are ongoing.

“I am the executive and the executive is functioning and we are doing the best we can. So legislature, it’s their own business and they are on it. I have a Speaker that is sitting right now, so I don’t know if there is any problem there,” he said.
