JUST IN: Onoja Sworn-in as Kogi Deputy Governor

Edward Onoja, the running mate of Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi state in the November 16 gubernatorial election, has been sworn in as the deputy governor of the state.

The swearing-in ceremony was held at the Kogi government house on Monday.

The ceremony is sequel to his confirmation by the Kogi state house of assembly.

Bello had sent the name of Onoja, his former chief of staff, to the assembly following the removal of Simon Achuba, his former deputy.

The impeachment panel set up to probe Achuba had said it could not prove the allegations against him, faulting his removal.
