Ex-Legislator Disagrees with Ogbeh’s Call for SGF’s Removal

Must read

Ahmad MoAllahyidi, a former senator who represented Adamawa South in the eighth National Assembly, has criticized Chief Audu Ogbeh, the former Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, for his recent demand to dismiss Senator George Akume, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).

Ogbeh had led a group of stakeholders from the Idoma community to a press conference, during which they expressed concerns about the appointment of Prof Joseph Utsev, a Tiv indigene, as a ministerial nominee from Benue State.

Speaking to reporters, Ogbeh called for Akume’s removal, arguing that his alleged involvement in selecting Utsev highlighted the marginalization of the Idoma people within Benue State.

Responding to this development, MoAllahyidi issued a statement on Saturday, characterizing Ogbeh’s actions as disappointing and regrettable.

“The selection of Akume as SGF by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu during the initial stages of his administration’s formation of governance structures received widespread approval across the nation, particularly among various political and social circles. It played a crucial role in ensuring political stability after the closely contested 2023 presidential election,” MoAllahyidi stated.
