Mr. Abiodun Faleke, a member of the House of Representatives and Deputy Governorship candidate to late Audu Abubakar has advised the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to discard the promise by the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, that he will deliver the state for the party in the 2019 presidential election.
Faleke alleged that Bello had no such capacity due to his underwhelming performance in the state.
In a statement on Wednesday, Faleke 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.”
He added, “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.”
