By Isiaka Oyibo

Lokoja – FORMER Accountant-General of Kogi State, Elder Obolo Okpanachi, yesterday, dismissed reports that he would open a can of worms on the administration of Governor Ibrahim Idris for daring to remove him from office.

Elder Obolo, while addressing journalists in Lokoja, described media reports credited to him to the effect that he had incriminating dossier on Governor Idris which he allegedly threatened to hand over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as not only fallacious but a calculated attempt by his political foes to drag his name to the mud.

He explained that he was strongly behind Idris to actualise his plans for Kogi State in spite of his removal from office.

According to the former Acountant-General, “there is no iota of truth whatsoever about these reports of me being in possession of a dossier on the misdemeanour of this administration for which I have worked assiduously to ensure its success in the last 5 years.”

According to the erstwhile AG whatever was the rationale behind my removal from office by the governor was best kwon to him and I owe no grudges against him. I still remain grateful and loyal to him for the rest of my life. The story of me being in possession of any damaging documents on governor Idris administration is “absolutely false, misleading and fictitious.”
