Mohammed Sani Kila, chief of staff to the governor of Kaduna State, has denied that he was approached by hotel management over unpaid debts.
According to the aforementioned allegation, he spent weeks at a hotel without footing the bill.
Ibrahim Aliyu Giwa, chief of staff to the governor of Kaduna State, issued a statement refuting the claim and calling it “false and malicious.”
The statement states, “the story was intended to impugn and smear the character, integrity, and reputation of the Chief of Staff.”
“The Chief of Staff resides in his house in Kaduna, [while] the hotel was secured for temporary accommodation of the newly appointed members of staff,” it read. “The hotel was secured for temporary accommodation of the newly appointed members of staff.”
“[This] is a statutory right of the first 28 days for [newly-appointed] public servants,” the hotel management said, “and the hotel management is familiar with government procedures for processing payment and patiently pursuing their claims.”
Kila’s intention to pursue legal action against the hotel and its management was made clear in the statement.
