The winner of the 2023 governorship election in Kogi State, Usman Ododo, has been sworn in as the Kogi State Governor.

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

After several months, he was elected to take over from Yahaya Bello, who had completed his second term in office.

He took the oath of office at around 2:24 p.m. in Lokoja on Saturday.

His inauguration came just minutes after Salifu Joel Oyibo took his oath of office as the deputy governor of Kogi State.

With his swearing in, Ododo becomes the 5th Executive Governor of Kogi State.

The event had in attendance the Vice President, Kashim Shettima, his predecessor, Yahaya Bello, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje, and other top members of the party.

Appreciating the presence of his closest rival during the election, Leke Abejide of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), in his speech, Governor Ododo said that the politics of bitterness are over.
