He says he remains grateful to God and Excellency for his good work despite the maneuverings of desperate politicians who wants to tarnish the Governor’s good works.
INN gathered that the court hearing will come up on the 18th of the month.

The physically challenged Aduku was given Automatic waiver by his Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Bello on May 25th, at stakeholders meeting in Sheraton hotel, Abuja.
