Awoniyi acknowledged the challenges of Kogi State politics and commended Governor Bello for his exceptional leadership and unity-building skills, citing these as reasons for his decision to join the APC and support the incoming administration.

Governor Bello, in turn, welcomed Awoniyi as a significant addition to the party, emphasizing that it reflects the people’s satisfaction with his leadership. The National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Ganduje, praised Awoniyi’s decision and highlighted the increasing defections to the APC in Kogi State under Governor Bello’s leadership, attributing it to the governor’s achievements and unifying efforts. Ganduje assured new APC members equal opportunities within the party.
