Earlier today, Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello fired one of the Commissioners of the State Independent Electoral Commission, (SIEC), Emmanuel Folorunsho Olorunfemi.

Until his sack, Olorunfemi had been on suspension.

His eventual removal follows the recommendation by Kogi State House of Assembly to the governor.

The lawmakers had investigated some allegations leveled against Olorunfemi in a petition.

He was removed for gross misconduct.

Meanwhile, the Governor has approved the appointment of George Funsho Ojo as the new Commissioner of Kogi State Independent Electoral Commission from Kabba/Bunu.

On the September 14, 2020, Bello was among a list of politicians placed on visa ban by the United States Department of State for undermining democracy in Nigeria.

While activists praised the decision and called on other developed nations to impose similar bans, Bello accused the United States of partisanship and claimed the 2019 Kogi State gubernatorial election was mostly peaceful and fair.
