Deputy Governor Onoja Denies Nominating Running Mate to Ododo 

The Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Edward Onoja has denied nominating a running mate to the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Ahmed Usman Ododo. 

Onoja, in a statement of clarification through his Chief Press Secretary, Promise Emmanuel, stated that he is not responsible for nominating a running mate.

He said “for the avoidance of doubt, for those conversant with the workings of Government, the Deputy Governor is NOT responsible for nominating a running mate, neither has he left Lokoja, the state capital, let alone to be in Katampe, Abuja for any stakeholders meeting since the party primaries.

“The Deputy Governor has been focused on his core duties of assisting the Governor to achieve the goals of the New Direction led Government; given to personal retreat in prayers of Thanksgiving to almighty God whom he says is the architect of all his milestone so far.

“He advises all individuals who seek office to do so without his name as an oil to drive it as it is within their rights; chiding opposition elements to also focus on their party instead of what happens within the APC.”
