Faleke distances self from Kogi governorship race
Member of the House of Representatives representing Ikeja Federal Constituency Hon. James Faleke has distanced himself from the Kogi State governorship race.
Faleke dismissed this at the All Progressives Congress presidential rally in Maiduguri, Borno State on Saturday.
Faleke, in a message to party supporters said he was focused on ensuring the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu wins at the polls.
“I got information while I was in Bornu rally today as to the collection of APC Kogi governorship form on my behalf by some of my friends in the state. While I thank them for their gesture and good intentions, I wish to state that what is before us all in the country now is the presidential election which is a burning issue and of which I’m deeply involved like all others.
“I therefore wish to say that all issues relating to the Kogi election coming up in November 2023 should be kept out and not distract us from the main agenda of the coming elections which is very paramount.
“Finally I wish to express my sincere appreciation to the people of the state,” Faleke said.
WesternPost gathered that some people bought the form for Faleke after the APC announced its timetable for the governorship election in the state.
Our source told this paper that Governor Yahya Bello has been stalking him because of it.
Faleke was previously deputy governorship candidate of the APC to late Alhaji Abubakar Audu.
He is the Chairman, Finance Committee of the House of Representatives and now the Secretary of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.
