The Deputy Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon. Abiodun Faleke, has said he should be counted out of the swearing-in with Governor-elect Yahaya Bello on January 27, 2016.
Speaking at an APC stakeholders meeting in Kogi west senatorial district in Kabba, Kogi state, on Monday, Faleke said he was not going to betray the Audu/Faleke ticket.
“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 Jan. 27, 2016,” he said.
“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.”
He further explained that President Muhammadu Buhari has no hand in what is happening in the state APC and decision reached by the national secretariat of the party, arguing that the president cannot be a party to injustice and outright violation of the rule of law.
According to him, nobody should play God rather the APC should learn from the misfortune of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which he claimed suffered because of impunity and injustice.
“People are fighting for 2019 in 2015. Are they God? What is happening is beyond human imagination,” he said.
He reiterated his willingness to go the whole legal hog, “I am a marathoner, no matter how bumpy and rough the road is, we shall get there.”
