Barely one month to the Kogi State governorship election, Chief Edward Onoja, Chief of Staff to Gov. Yahaya Bello, has resigned his position.

Onoja resigned in a bid to perfect his preparation as the running mate to his principal, Bello,who is seeking reelection on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mrs Folashade Arike, the Secretary to the State Government,has named Abdulkareem Jamiu, former Director General (Protocol), as the new Chief of Staff to the governor.

While Dr Gabriel Ottah had been appointed to replace Jamiu as new DG Protocol.

Onoja became the running mate to the governor following a feud between the governor and his deputy, Elder Simon Achuba who is presently facing impeachment charges.
