Chief Edward Onoja, who is the running mate to the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag bearer in the November 16 Kogi State governorship election, Governor Yahaya Bello, has resigned his position as Chief of Staff.
Edward’s emergence as running mate to Governor Bello had been highly speculated and was confirmed shortly after the blown rift between Bello and his deputy, Elder Simon Achuba, who is currently facing impeachment proceedings.
The letter of the new political setup reads:
“Consequent upon the resignation of the former Chief of Staff to the Governor of Kogi State, Chief Edward Onoja, His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has approved the appointment of former Director General (Protocol), Pharm. Abdulkareem Jamiu as Chief of Staff to Excellency.
“His Excellency has also approved the appointment of Dr. Gabriel Ottah as DG Protocol to His Excellency. The appointment takes effect from the 14th. October 2019.”
