Following the mind-boggling revelations coming out of the on-going civil service au­dit and the uncompro­mising determination by the administration of Governor Yahaya Bello to rid Kogi State of corrup­tion, the government has announced the creation of a fund to purchase the world’s first transparent and anti-corruption car.

“Governor Bello has always said that he would never touch a single kobo of state funds for personal use,” the statement read. “To show how serious he is with this stance, he has decided to convert his car to a transparent and bul­letproof one that will al­ways show him to the peo­ple wherever he goes.

We hope to be the first African nation to own such a magnificent machine.”
