Kogi Deputy Governor-in-Awaiting : Arc. Abayomi Awoniyi 's Overwhelming Resume

Arc. Yomi Awoniyi (Kogi Deputy Gov. -in- Awaiting)
Abayomi Sunday Benjamin Awoniyi was born to the family of Chief Sunday B.
Awoniyi was born on the 4th of September 1960.

Yomi, as I am better known, attended various primary schools and obtained my primary school leaving certificate from Adeola Model School, Offa, Kwara State in 1970. I proceeded to Government Secondary School Okene (now Abdul Azeez Atta Memorial College) from where I transferred to Barewa College Zaria graduating with a Grade One School Certificate in 1976.

I attended the School of Basic Studies at Ahmadu Bello University Zaria and was admitted to the Department of Architecture of the same University. I graduated in 1981 with a Bachelor’s Degree and a Master of Science degree in Architecture in 1983. I proceeded to the University College of the University of London and graduated with Master of Science degree in Urban Development Planning 1984.

Post NYSC in 1985, I worked with Architects Group Practice in Lagos. On becoming a member of the Nigerian Institute of Architects in 1988, I became a partner at a firm of Architects - Awoniyi Associates and to date have many residential and institutional building designs and construction to my credit.

I am a director of a number of companies including Boja Industries Limited – an industrial packaging and plastic manufacturing company located in Mopa.

With the return to the present democratic dispensation in 1998/1999, I have been actively involved in politics under the banner of the Peoples Democratic Party.
