Achuba in an interview on Channels Television, claimed that he is being victimised by the governor for ‘doing the right thing,’ he also called for tight security in the state due to the spread of violence in the state.

“As a deputy governor, I have tried my best internally to ensure that the right things are done. For that sake, I am hated and denied my right.

“This was why in my last press interview I cried out to the world and to the law enforcement agents to focus on Kogi State because of the level of violence being perpetrated by the sitting governor of Kogi State,” Achuba said.

The deputy governor also described his current relationship with the governor as ‘rough and not very smooth.’
