Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello may have picked his Chief of Staff, Edward Onoja as his running mate in the upcoming November 16 governorship election in the state.
Governor Bello won to become the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) at the party’s primary held on 29th August.
Sources say the National Secretariat has cleared Onoja as Bello’s running mate.
Although Onoja’s pictures had accompanied Bello’s in all posters in the build-up to the party’s primary, it was gathered that the arrangement was only approved on Friday after the meeting of the APC chairman, Adams Oshiomole with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Onoja, a Geology graduate and a former banker has always been a formidable force to reckon with and have been the face of the government headed by Bello.
