An Igboman, Simon Achuba, was on Tuesday, February 9, sworn in as the deputy governor of Kogi state amid tight security.

Achuba, who was born in Kogi, is said to be originally from Aguleri in Anambra state.

He defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) last year and was a deputy speaker of the state house of assembly.

He was nominated by Governor Yahaya Bello to replace James Faleke, who declined to run with Bello after the APC governorship candidate, Alhaji Abubakar Audu, died before the governorship election could be concluded.

The party picked Bello as its candidate and he went on to win the rescheduled poll. Faleke instead went to court to challenge the party’s decision.
