Bello said that he had always paid for his children’s tuition at the American International School in Abuja, where they had been enrolled since before he was elected governor, in a statement issued through his media office.

Vanguard News reports that the statement emphasizes that the payments were made beginning in 2021, not just before Bello left office, and disputes the precise amounts indicated by the EFCC chairman. Additionally, it claims that money from the Kogi State government was not used to pay the costs. The American International School was told to carry on offering services for which payments had been paid in a court case involving the EFCC and the school.

According to the statement, Bello’s lawyers provided public records that show his transparency in paying upfront costs for his kids. The EFCC disclosed these documents, which show his transparency. The statement ends by noting that no conclusions or convictions have been reached and that the case is still ongoing in court.CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
