KOGI 2019!!! Yahaya Bello Picks A 49-Year Old Friend As Running Mate, Drops His Current Deputy

Yahaya Bello, the Governor of Kogi State, has picked Edward Onoja, his Chief of Staff, as his running mate for the November 16, Governorship election in the State.
An Aide of the Governor, who did not want to be quoted, made this known on Sunday.

The Aide said that the Governor submitted Onoja’s name to the Leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, during his trip to Abuja, earlier last week.

“The Chief of Staff is the running mate of His Excellency in the forthcoming election. An official announcement would be made soon”, the Governor’s Aide said.
“Mr. Onoja’s name was submitted to the National Working Committee of the party, when His Excellency visited the party Headquarters, on Thursday.”
Kingsley Fanwo, the Spokesman of the Governor, was evasive when contacted.
“The party will confirm that at the appropriate time”, he said via text message.

An Ally of Bello, Onoja, is the most influential member of the Governor’s cabinet. Their relationship predates the emergence of the Governor in 2016.
Aged 49, the indigene of Emonyoku Ogugu, in Olamaboro Local Government Area of Kogi, is a Geologist.
He sought the ticket of the former All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, for a House of Assembly seat in 2011.
He was the Chief Strategist of the “Yahaya Bello Campaign Organisation” in 2015, and the State Director of the Kogi Youth Arise Group, which worked for the success of President Muhammadu Buhari, still in 2015.
