Also at the press briefing is the APC chairman in the state, Alhaji Haddi Ametuo, who led some members of the party to pass a vote of no confidence on the governor last year.
The APC leaders advised the governor to resign or face impeachment.
Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has officially confirmed that Governor Bello registered twice for permanent voter’s card.
The electoral law makes it a big offence to engage in double registration for which the governor is now been accused by INEC. According to INEC, Governor Bello illegally registered for voter’s card in Abuja and Kogi.
