Kogi Tribunal: My Advice to Hon. James Faleke by James Mohammed

Hon. James Faleke has proven to the world that he is a strong fighter who never relents in his struggle for political power even if it involves fighting God.

His case can be likened to Moses in the Bible who had suffered so much to lead the Israelites to the Promised Land but didn’t enter into the land with them because of his disobedient to God. Moses only saw the land but didn’t enter because he doubted the supremacy of God.

Faleke, despite that he was imported from Lagos to Kogi state by the All Progressive Congress was accepted by the party supporters as the deputy governorship candidate to the Late Prince Abubakar Audu because they were told to obey the party’s decision. The same party decided that Late Prince Abubakar Audu who died after the result of the Kogi State November, 21 Governorship election was declared inconclusive last year, should be replaced by Alhaji Yahaya Bello, now the Executive governor of Kogi state and he (Faleke) refused to accept the party’s decision. He decided to take INEC and Alhaji Yahaya Bello to the Tribunal, challenging Bello’s mandate as the Governor of Kogi state, not knowing that Bello’s mandate is God’s mandate. His offence here is that he refused to obey and challenged his party’s decision. Faleke even went further to challenge every policy of Governor Yahaya Bello led administration which warrants me to write an article titled “Why is Faleke embarrassing himself” in February last year.

I understand that every human being is insatiable and there is this self-actualization need of every man. Even when you are in a high position, you will want to be in a higher one, but that should be done with courtesy and prudence.

The decision of Justice Halima Mohammed led Tribunal recently to strike out Faleke’s case and other enemies of kogi state against Governor Yahaya Bello is a sign that a fight against Bello is a fight against God and a fight against God is a fight to self destruction.

I know some persons are there advising James Faleke, a member representing Ikeja constituency to go to the appeal and even the supreme court but I want to assure him (Faleke) that even if he goes to the world court, the decision of the Tribunal court on this case cannot be averted to favour him. By then he must have end up disgracing himself and his supporters and at the same time kill his political career.

Bello is so confident of his victory because he knows that his emergence as the number citizen of Kogi state is divine and ordained by God and not by any god-father; that is why he makes no or little noise before the Tribunal judgement and went on performing his God-given duties.

Vox Dei, Vox Populi – the voice of God is the voice of the people; that is the case of Governor Yahaya Bello in November last year and uptill date. I therefore advise my comrade, a Lagos base but Kogi born politician, Hon. James Faleke to shed his sword and work with His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, the Executive Governor of Kogi state to move Kogi state forward to the Promised Land. He should act like Peter who after denying Jesus three times, realized his mistake and prayed for forgiveness, and not like Judas Iscariot who after betraying Jesus, went further to hung himself instead of repenting.
