"Anyone Parading Himself As Kogi Deputy Governor Is An Impostor" – Impeached Achuba Says 3

Elder Simon Achuba has insisted that he is the deputy governor of Kogi State and any other person parading himself as the deputy governor is an impostor who should be jailed.

This is coming following the impeachment of Elder Simon Achuba over alleged gross misconduct by Kogi House of Assembly on Friday, October 18, 2019.

Edward David Onoja, who was the immediate past Chief of Staff to Governor Yahaya Bello, was confirmed as the new Deputy Governor of the state.

However, while speaking during an interview on Channels Television breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily, Achuba insisted that he is still the state’s number two citizen despite his impeachment by the legislature.

When asked if he wants to be reinstated or continue his relationship with the present administration he said:

“The idea of being reinstated does not exist. I am the deputy governor and there’s no other one.

“Anybody who is parading himself as the deputy governor is completely an impostor and nothing more. As far as the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is concerned that person must be an imposter and when law enforcement agents are effective, such person should have been arrested and kept in a dungeon for trial.”

He also insisted that his removal is unconstitutional and the action of the Kogi State House of Assembly will be questioned by the court of law.

“There can’t be two deputy governors in a state. There can only be one at a time. The only deputy governor that Kogi State has now is me.

“That the Chief Justice swore in somebody does not give it legality in any way. The action of the State Assembly and everyone who participated in the process will be out to test in court because we are in court already,” he said.

The new deputy governor of the state in reaction to Achuba, also on the programme said the Kogi State House of Assembly simply did their job and he deserves to be congratulated on his new appointment as new deputy governor.
