Buhari Campaign: Faleke is Diaspora Politician, Funding APDA – Bello Fires Back


Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has lambasted former deputy governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, James Abiodun Faleke, over comments against him.

Faleke had warned that President Muhammadu Buhari may lose the state in 2019 if Bello continues to lead his campaign in the state.

Faleke said the governor had no such capacity because he is unpopular.

Responding, Bello through his Director General, Media and Publicity, Kingsley Fanwo, re-affirmed his earlier stance that Buhari remains the candidate to beat in Kogi State.

He said: “Kogi is for Buhari and Buhari is for Kogi. Let us remind critics that Kogi people were the first to hold a mammoth rally to endorse Mr. President for second term.

“Faleke is a diaspora politician, a bad loser who has been doing everything possible to pull the party down in Kogi State. Some APC leaders in Kogi State may not be aware that we are keeping track of their secret funding of APDA in the state.

“Faleke is uncomfortable with the rising profile of the governor and has been making mockery of his political status as a member of the House of Representatives.

“President Buhari is comfortable that those who tried to pull the party down are complaining. It shows that the party is safely under the leadership of Governor Bello.

“Faleke should come home and stop launching tirades in the pages of newspapers. Every politics is local. Let him come home to prove his relevance.”

    Fanwo be aware that there’s no rising profile of your boss emperor that Faleke is jealous of. The blatant truth remains; Bello is not popular for good deeds in Kogi State. It’s painful that you upon all your exposure, you and your clique still remain crude except the Man that resigned as a commissioner in ministry of Agriculture. Kogi people are sick and tire of your propaganda, arrogance, failure, anarchy, nepotism, and foolish way of governance. You talk as if it’s not Kogi State you’re governing, sometimes I ask which of the state is Bello governing?
    You needed to go and learn how to govern because your tenure is unpopular. Wada was paying full salary to the state workers, some people said he didn’t pay leave bonus, but when the emperor took over, he started paying 50%-60% to the workers, what a new direction indeed!
    Further more, since you took over from wada, no Kogi State worker have been promoted from one GL to another, haba white lion indeed!
    Kidnapping is on the rise upon all the millions that the new direction team spent on Ford trucks donated to toothless security apparatus.
    Keep on deceiving yourself one day{soon} the “bush meat go catch the hunter! “
