Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, has marked the Constituency office of the embattled Senator Dino Melaye, which is located at Kabba, for immediate demolition.
Senator Dino who shared pictures of the building marked for demolition said: “I alerted the public last week, of the plan by Kogi State Govt. to demolish my properties across Kogi State. Today the Constituency office I built in Kabba, has been marked.”
In a swift reaction, on Tuesday night, a top source from the Governor’s office, said that the embattled Lawmaker failed to seek approval from the Board, before embarking on the said project.
“Let us put sentiments aside. Dino Melaye did not get our approval before erecting that building. Right from the foundation level, we instructed him to stop, but he refused. We marked it severally, but he cleaned it up.
“Dino should stop playing politics, just because he is having a rift with the Governor. Governor Bello has nothing to do with this because we are professionals, and you could ascertain the dangers of erecting an illegal building in a place.
“His house is not the only one we marked, we also marked two Commissioners’ houses for failing to meet the laid-down rules of Town Planning; so why is he personalizing the issue?
“We cannot put professionalism aside because of his political difference in the State. Nobody is above the law,” the source noted.
