The swearing-in of Edward Onoja as the new deputy governor of Kogi state has been postponed to Monday, October 21.
The swearing-in was reportedly earlier scheduled for Saturday, October 21, following the impeachment of Simon Achuba as Governor Yahaya Bello’s deputy by the state House of Assembly.
Reports has it that the swearing-in will hold on Monday when the state assembly screens and confirms Onoja as the new deputy governor.
Onoja, after the confirmation, will proceed to the Lugard House where the oath of office will be administered to him by the chief judge of the state, Justice Nasir Ajanah.
Onoja is the running mate to Governor Bello in the forthcoming November 16 governorship election in Kogi state.
Before his emergence as Bello’s running mate, Onoja was Governor Bello’s chief of staff.
The panel we gathered could not prove the allegations levelled against the impeached deputy governor.
They described the impeachment announcement as “the most bizarre thing that I have ever heard in my life”.
