Politics We Are Ready To Occupy Kogi If Faleke Is Not Declared Governor-Elect - Group



✅ NEW - car park, swimming pool, 24 hours light/security and more.
Ahead of the January 27, 2015 inauguration of a new government in Kogi State, a group, the Faleke Solidarity Movement (FSM), has warned that if Abiodun Faleke was not declared the Governor-Elect of the state by January 10, 2016, it would ground activities in the state, Vanguard reports.

Giving the ultimatum in a communique released after its End-of-the-Year meeting in Kabba, the FSM said the declaration of Alh. Yahaya Bello as Governor-Elect is a travesty of justice.

The group insisted that Faleke was the right person to replace the late Prince Abubakar Audu, since they both contested on the same ticket.

“We give INEC till January 10, 2016 to declare Faleke as Governor-Elect or we will mobilize our members across the state to occupy Lokoja until the needful is done. INEC should be prevailed upon not to plunge this nation into unimaginable crisis.”

However, Bello Support Organization, a political group that supported the emergence of Alh. Yahaya Bello as Governor-Elect of the state has assured Kogites that the government of Yahaya Bello will improve the welfare of the Kogi people.
