Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello Appoints Deputy


Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State on Monday appointed Simon Achu­ba as the deputy governor of the state.

A post on APC’s Facebook page indicates that Bello in a letter to the House of Assembly, asked the lawmakers to confirm Achu­ba as his deputy.

His action follows the refusal of James Faleke, the running mate to the late Abubakar Audu, to accept the office.

The letter reads: “In line with the provision of Section 186 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (1999) as amended, I have the pleasure to forward herewith, the name of Hon. Simon Achuba for approval of appointment as the deputy governor of Kogi State.

“Hon. Achuba (JP) hails from Ibaji Local Government Area of Kogi State and was a two-time honourable member of the state House of Assembly from 1999 to 2007 where he was Deputy-Speak­er during his second tenure.

“In view of the above, it will be highly appreciated if the request is treated and approved with utmost speed to pave way for his assump­tion of office.”

The State House of Assembly is expected to seat on Tuesday for the screening and possible confirmation of Achuba.
