Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has nominated
Edward Onoja, his running mate in the November 16
election, as the deputy governor of the State.
NAN reports that Onoja would be sworn in on Saturday.
This comes after the Kogi State House of Assembly
impeached Simon Achuba over alleged gross
Achuba had fallen out with Bello shortly after he was
sworn into office.
Onoja formally resigned his position as Chief of Staff to
Bello this week.
He was the chief strategist of “Yahaya Bello Campaign
Organization” in 2015 and the State Director of the Kogi
Youth Arise Group, which worked for the success of
President Muhammadu Buhari also in 2015.
