Kogi State Deputy Governor Edward Onoja has said there is no rift between him and his boss, Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello.
Onoja made this known during the Emonyoku Family Thanksgiving Day Thanksgiving Service held at Emonyoku-Ogugu in the Olamaboro Local Government Area of Kogi State.
“I thank Almighty God that He elevated Governor Bello to the position of Governor of Kogi State and I would have no reason to disagree with him,” the lieutenant governor said.
At the ceremony, he announced that Governor Yahaya Bello donated a Honda vehicle to the Pastor of the United Evangelical Church, Emanyoku; Peugeot 406 to the National President of the Emanyoku family union; and a 32-seater bus to Emanyoku Community High School.
Onoja further said that as a former chief of staff and now deputy governor, he had continued to serve his boss and the Kogi state faithfully and in the fear of God.
He called on the Kogi people to continue supporting the new direction of Governor Yahaya Bello’s administration.
“I advise people to avoid spreading non-existent stories between me and my boss,” Onoja said, adding that “no one can break the good and positive relationship that has helped the physical development of Kogi State for the past seven years.” .
On Thanksgiving Day, Onoja said that God had done a lot for the Emonyoku community in terms of physical development and thus the reason for the community members’ annual thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving Day saw the presentation of awards, the raising of a scholarship fund of over six million naira for destitute students from the Emonyoku community and a worship session.
Members representing the Bassa and Olamaboro constituencies, Ranji Daniya and Anthony Ujah respectively, and other notable dignitaries graced the occasion.
