Chief David Onoja  has been confirmed as Kogi state deputy governor.  Onoja, who was the immediate past Chief of Staff to Governor Yahaya Bello, was on Monday, October 21, confirmed at exactly 8:27 am by  the state house of assembly 

Prince Mathew Kolawole, the speaker of the house, urged the new deputy governor to  support Bello’s plan to  bring more great development in the state.

The Herald earlier reported that the  impeached deputy governor of  state, Elder Simon Achuba, claimed that he was treated like a common criminal moments after the State House of Assembly made its pronouncement about his removal.

Achuba said the state was fast degenerating into a “banana republic” where lawlessness reigned supreme.

According to him, moments after “the purported impeachment” by the state assembly, his security details were withdrawn and policemen thereafter barricaded his official residence in Lokoja keeping him under “house arrest”.
