Gov. Idris Wada of Kogi, has faulted report that he sacked chairmen of local governments from office for defecting to the rival All Progressives Congress (APC), stressing that he only obey the order of the Appeal Court by reinstating them.

“It is a lie that I sacked LGA Chairmen for defecting from the PDP. This story is not true. The LGA were removed by a Kotun-karfe court about 11 months ago. The party went to the court of appeal and the court ordered that they be returned. I only reinstated the LGA Chairmen as directed by the Appeal Court,” he said on his Twitter handle.
