Honourable Abiodun Faleke has told President Mummadu Buhari not to rely on Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State who promised that he would ensure that Kogi delivers more votes for the president in 2019 than Katsina, his home state.
Faleke, in a statement on Wednesday January 10th, 2018 said: “It is the height of deceit for a governor who owe several months’ salaries and pensions, and who cannot provide basic infrastructure, to boast of delivering Kogi for President Buhari in 2019.”
“Mr. President, how can a governor who has been indicted by the Independent National Electoral Commission for engaging in double registration lead your campaign train in Kogi with such a moral stain hanging on his neck?
“The question is, will President Buhari contest? If yes, will he win Kogi with Yahaya Bello as the chief campaigner? The answer is No. This is because he has killed the APC in the state, thereby stripping us of critical campaign issues in the state.”
