Mercy Onoja

Onoja’s husband, Edward, was sworn-in at the Kogi government house on Monday by the state Chief Judge, Justice Nadir Ajana.
Onoja was sworn-in following the impeachment of Simon Achuba on Friday, October 18, 2019.
The state governor, Yahaya Bello had sent his former chief of staff, Onoja’s name to the assembly following the impeachment of Achuba, his former deputy.
In the same vein, the Kogi State House of Assembly confirmed Edward Onoja as the deputy governor of the state on Monday.
Mr Onoja’s appointment was confirmed during a special sitting presided over by Speaker Mathew Kolawole.
Mr Achuba was impeached last Friday on three grounds of criminal indulgence, financial misappropriation, and non-performance.
Achuba had accused the governor of the state, Yahaya Bello, of being after his life.
He alleged that Bello had sent gunmen to kill him, adding that the governor withheld the payment of his allowances amounting to N800 million.

Kogi lawmakers, however, claimed that Achuba’s allegations, actions, and utterances amounted to gross misconduct.
Achuba had tried to block his impeachment at the State High Court, Lokoja.
