Ododo sworn- in as new Kogi Governor

Alhaji Ahmed Usman Ododo of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was on Saturday sworn in as the fifth Executive Governor of Kogi State.

He is taking over from Alhaji Yayaha Bello , also of the APC, who bowed out of office after eight years as the Chief Executive of the state.

 

The ceremony was held at the Muhammadu Buhari Civic center Lokoja in a colorful ceremony graced by Vice President Senator Kashim Shettima and Dr Umar Abdullahi Ganduje,, the National Chairman of the APC.

Ododo, a member of the All Progressives Congress, took his oath of office as the state governor in Lokoja, the state capital on Saturday, following his November 11, 2023 victory.

Ododo won with 446,237 votes, defeating his closest rival, Murtala Ajaka of the Social Democratic Party, who garnered 259,052, while Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party pulled 46,362 votes.

His deputy, Salifu Oyibo, also took his oath of office.
