Over their dead bodies! Kogi APC leaders object Tinubu’s alleged nomination of James Faleke as late minister, James Ocholi’s replacement
• Trouble brews as party leaders write Buhari, threaten to thwart Tinubu’s plot to impose Faleke in presidential cabinet
Kogi state is in crisis. Like a boiling cauldron, it suffers that action and counteraction which, in the political world, incites the reciprocal struggle of discordant powers gunning for expansive pieces of the power bloc. As you read, trouble brews in the state and allegation is rife that James Faleke, ex-APC gubernatorial aspirant in the state, is riding on the influence of mentor and powerful politician, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to become the replacement for late minister, Ocholi.
The move believed to be hinged on compensating the House of Representatives Member for losing out in his calculated bid to become Kogi Governor is currently creating a huge rumpus in the state. According to information monitored on news platform Punch, APC leaders in the state, especially Kogi West have gone as far as writing to President Muhammed Buhari to oppose Faleke’s nomination. They also threatened to employ all legal and political means to stop his political advancement in the state.
