The governor was accused of acting unperturbed as his people suffer due to flood.
Nigerians have lambasted Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello for acting unperturbed as citizens of his state are displaced by ravaging flood.
The criticism came after he was seen flexing with Ayra Starr’s new music.
Recall that we had reported how over 500 houses were submerged after an overflow from nearby River Niger which surged through the roads leaving many displaced with properties worth millions destroyed in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.
Instead of visiting the affected communities and rendering them needed help, the governor decided to show off his car and dress while flexing with the video by the singer.
He shared the video with the caption;
‘About Yesterday, cc Ayra Starr’s’

One of the displeased Nigerians who called the governor out, is John Samuel, who wrote;
”that’s your business sir.. Show off as you like… For me this was my “about yesterday” experience in Lokoja Kogi State capital. For now you guy should be ashamed of the situation instead of of being power drunk and having little or no sympathy for those having terrible time”
Another one MrObiDatti1wrote;
‘‘Oga governor reach out to Ibaji people… They are your people and the flood is no longer news. They are suffering. Please act as the father your are called… This people fought for you during the election with their lives….. Do the needful sir.”
‘This is kogi state when I passed through it just yesterday but the governor is here acting like everything is fine’
Chris Ani wrote;
‘’Nigerian Politicians have mind mixed with wickedness. One of the poorest state in Nigeria , the Gov has kind to be posting Gwagon with plenty convoy and paparazzi on social media.’’’
Kunle Kenny wrote;
‘’Very foolish, callous and tone deaf! You have the temerity to post this when the people you are to serve are submerged and suffering?? Shame on you Yahaya Bello. Tueh!!! May Posterity judge you!’’
”Meanwhile your state capital is flooded. You’re a disgrace.”
