Jibrin Ndace, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Sani Bello of Niger State, has claimed that his principal has been living in a ‘boys’ quarters-like’ apartment since 2015.
He said the development was due to the dilapidated state of the official quarters he inherited from his predecessor .
Ndace said on Thursday when the Coalition for President Muhammadu Buhari and Abubakar Sani Bello paid him a courtesy visit at the press gallery, Minna.
Though, he did not disclose the location of the apartment where Bello currently lives, he, however, said that the boys’ quarters-like apartment which is a guest house is not too far from the Government House.
According to him, “The governor is a down-to-earth man who has been living in a boys’ quarters-like apartment since he assumed office in 2015.
“When he came on board, we met the Government House abandoned, with dilapidated structures.
“The Governor’s Lodge renovation project, which was ongoing for years, was abandoned by the previous government of Dr. Muazu Babangida Aliyu; but it is now being renovated and the governor is almost completing it.”
Ndace also added that the parameter fencing of the Government House was so porous that “even goats jump over because it is so short, not to talk about people.”
