Kogi: APC May Pick Simon Achuka As Bello’s Deputy

The dust over who becomes the deputy to the Kogi State governor-elect, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, seems to have settled as Hon Simon Achuba may have been picked for the position.

It would be recalled that the nomination of Hon James Faleke after the demise of his principal, Prince Abubakar Audu, to be deputy to Alhaji Yahaya Bello, has been subject of litigation.

According to sources the final decision to pick Hon Simon Achuba, from among three other favoured people, Hon Benjamin Ikani, Hon Aisha Abubakar and Hon Tim Idiche, was influenced by the fact that Achuba had been two time member of the House of Assembly in Kogi State which gave him the edge.

Investigation also revealed that as a sign of readiness for the onerous task of deputy governor some security operatives have been detailed to the incoming deputy-governor’s house to keep vigil.

Meanwhile, all is set for January 27, 2016, inauguration of Governor-elect.
