Kogi state is buzzing with political excitement as Architect Yomi Awoniyi, a former deputy governor, had made a significant move by officially joining the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the forthcoming November 11 gubernatorial election.

Awoniyi's decision to team up with the APC brings a considerable boost to the electoral prospects of the ruling party in Kogi state. This development has elicited joy and excitement among party faithful and supporters of Governor Bello.

The former deputy governor expressed his reasons for joining the APC, citing the exceptional leadership and good governance provided by Governor Bello. Awoniyi acknowledged the governor's humility, unmatched unity-building skills, and his ability to deliver development to the people of Kogi state.

According to a report by Leadership newspaper, Governor Bello warmly welcomed Awoniyi to the APC, declaring that the party now boasts of "a big fish" in the Kogi political ocean. He reasserted the party's dominance in the state, stating, "We are APC and APC is Kogi."

This development comes at a critical time as political activities intensify in the state in preparation for the upcoming gubernatorial election. Governor Bello, who is seeking a second term, has been receiving endorsements and support from notable figures within and outside the state.

Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced the commencement of recruitment for ad-hoc staff for the forthcoming off-cycle governorship elections in Kogi, Bayelsa, and Imo states.

Interested Nigerians can now register for recruitment on the INEC portal starting from Thursday, August 31, 2023, and ending on Monday, October 2, 2023. This move by INEC is to ensure a smooth electoral process and the enlistment of competent personnel to carry out essential election duties.

The political landscape is heating up in Kogi state with more prominent personalities aligning with the APC. Architect Yomi Awoniyi's entry into the fold not only strengthens the ruling party's chances in the upcoming election but also sends a strong signal to other political players in the state.

As the November 11 poll approaches, all eyes will be on Kogi state to see how the political dynamics play out. The APC's growing popularity and Governor Bello's achievements in office will undoubtedly impact the electoral outcome in the state.
