Olorunpomi who is affiliated with Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi’s cabinet said “Until the Presidency come out to publicly deny this, I will assume it is 100% true.

Responding to the first tweet in the comment section, Ahmad was stunned by the statement of his party member, he said, “Surprised, I would have called Gbenga to confirm first.”
