From Noah Ocheni, Lokoja
Barely 24 hours that the Chief Medical Director of Specialist Hospital, Lokoja was suspended for non compliance with the state financial guidelines, the vice Chancellor of Kogi state University, Prof. Abdulkadir and the Rector of the state polytechnic, Prof Mohammed Atureta have been suspended from office for similar offence.
Inside sources told Authority that the duo were suspended for non compliance to the new financial guidelines as
directed by Governor Yahaya Bello.
Our source informed that the Governor was terribly miffed by the behaviour of the two top officials and directed that they should proceed on suspension.
The source revealed that the Governor refused to be placated, insisting that their
actions were high display of insubordination.
Meanwhile, there are indications that letters are already been issued to MDAs that have complied and funds are soon to be released to them.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner for information and Communication, Hon
Kingsley Fanwo has called on top management of agencies under the ministry to fully comply with the new financial
guidelines, warning that anyone found wanting, would not be shielded.
At a meeting today, Fanwo said the government was introducing the policies in the best interest of the state and therefore
called for total compliance.
