Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has inaugurated a commission of inquiry to investigate the use of public funds from May 29th 2013 to January 27th 2016.

While inaugurating the members of the commission at the Government House in Lokoja, Governor Bello says he will also surrender himself to be probed by his successor after leaving office.
He charged the commission to avoid any means of victimisation but should rather check how public funds were used within the stated period.
In his remark, the Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General of the state, Mohammed Ibrahim explained the relevant sections of the law that empowers the state governor to set up the probe panel.
The seven-man judicial panel of commission is headed by Justice Wada Umar Rano as its chairman.
While inaugurating the commission, Governor Bello said it has become necessary to look into the activities of the past administrations with a view of recovering stolen funds belonging to the state.
He mandated the commission to recommend measures that would prevent stealing of public funds while added that his administration is ready to put Kogi State on the path of development, urging the people to assist the commission in the discharge of its assignment.
Some experts however urge the commission to be honest and fair so as to avoid a witch-hunt. (Channels TV)
