Kogi State Governor, Captain Idris Wada may sack the commissioner for water resources, Hajia Hadiza Onotu over an alleged letter forgery scandal.
The governor according to PSN investigations while compiling names for his cabinets received a letter purportedly written by the Vice-President of Nigeria, Arch. Namadi Sambo introducing Hajia Onotu as the candidate of the Vice President, which led to the governor appointing her to his cabinet.
The governor was however shocked recently when he was told by the V.P in one of their National Council of State meetings in Abuja that he did not send any letter to Wada to appoint the Kaduna based lawyer for any cabinet position.
This has according to PSN source embarrassed the governor, prompting him to invite the embattled commissioner for a chat in his office, immediately he arrived in Lokoja.
The commissioner who could not hold her tears broke down and started confessing that the letter was actually forged by one of her lovers working in the presidency, with close ties to the office of the Vice president.
PSN sources informed that the governor was ready to sack the lady immediately but was persuaded by one of his aides who is often termed as a member of his kitchen cabinet, advising him against the move.
The aide cited the several litigations in front of the governor and advised against any negative news as it might overheat the situation in the state.
The commissioner since the incident has been sidelined by the governor, and has just been left idle in her office in Lokoja.
Barrister Hadiza Onotu is now leaving in fear, as the governor have lost confidence in her, and it’s only a matter of time before she is being removed.
PSN effort to speak with her on the issue was unsuccessful as she was said to be indisposed, requesting that we come back another day.
