The All Progressives Congress (APC) deputy governorship candidate in Kogi State, Hon. Abiodun Faleke, has said he would not make himself available for swearing in with the governor-elect, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, on January 27, 2016.
Faleke, who stated this on Monday in Kabba during a meeting of APC stakeholders from Kogi West Senatorial District, said this statement followed his resolve not to work with Bello, a decision he communicated to the national leadership of the party some days ago.
The politician, who was reacting to resolutions reached at the meeting that he should pursue the legal option to its end, said the Audu/Faleke ticket remained intact and unchanged.
He said: “I will not disappoint Prince Abubakar Audu. I, James Abiodun Faleke will not be there for the swearing in if we don’t finish the case before the January 27, 2016.
“Nobody consulted me before making me a deputy to Bello. Bello too did not consult me. I have made my position known to the party leadership on this. I am not ready to betray and disappoint Prince Abubakar Audu.”
The tenure of the present administration ends on January 27, 2016.
He also exonerated President Muhammadu Buhari from the crisis, saying the President he knows cannot be a party to injustice and outright violation of rule of law.
