Written by on December 9, 2015

downloadKogi State Governor, Idris Wada, yesterday announced the setting up of a transition committee to facilitate handover to a new government.

Wada, who lost his bid for a second tenure, will hand over to Alhaji Yahaya Bello of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who won last Saturday’s poll.
The governor, whose four-year term will end on January twenty-six, vowed to challenge the result of the election.

He said the committee, to be headed by the Secretary to the State Government, Professor Olugbemiro Jegede, is expected to manage the process leading to the hand over on January twenty-second.

The committee, Wada noted, is to work with a similar committee by the APC to ensure a smooth transition.

He also set up a steering committee to be headed by Deputy Governor Yomi Awoniyi.
