Alleged partisanship: Kogi government queries monarch 


The Kogi state government has issued a query to the Ohimege-Igu of Koton-Karfe, Alhaji Abdulrazak Gombo Isa-Koto, for allegedly indulging in partisan politics.


The letter dated November 22, 2023 and issued by the state Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Salami Momodu Ozigi Deedat, asked the first class monarch to answer the query within 48 hours.

The letter said the royal father deliberately engaged in partisan role in the just conducted gubernatorial election in the state.


The letter reads in part:  “It has come to the notice of the state government that you deliberately engaged yourself in partisan role in the just conducted gubernatorial election in Kogi state.


“This is viewed very seriously, especially that your action, role and participation in partisan politics endangered the security of your domain to the extent that crisis erupted under your watch that led to death of an innocent young lady in addition to several others that were wounded.


“This blatant action of yours is a sad contradiction of your expected role as a revered royal father of your status. It is more worrisome that you acted unbothered when the much coveted peace and security of the state was being threatened by your action.”
