“From my concluded investigation they will all end up in prison for corruption. We are fine tuning our petition and the world will be shocked.. SDM.”

The development is coming a day after Gov. Bello stated why he cannot work with Melaye.

According to Gov. Bello, he cannot work with Dino Melaye because their ideologies for joining politics are different.

Gov. Bello stated that much in a statement issued by Kingsley Fanwo, the Director-General of Media and Publicity to the Governor, while responding to claims by Melaye that he had not completed any project since coming into power three years ago.
