Kogi 2019: Hon. James Faleke Set to Jostle APC Ticket With Governor Yahaya Bello
Ahead of August 2019 Kogi state governorship primary of the All Progressivea Congress (APC), former running-mate to late Abubakar Audu, Hon. James Faleke, has joined the race to contest for the ticket of the party.
His posters were sighted at the APC national secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday.
Faleke was the running mate to the late Audu Abubakar in the November 2015 governorship election.
According to THISDAY, a senior member of the party who spoke on condition of anonymity described Faleke’s move as a welcome development.
He said: “Remember that Falake was on a joint ticket with the late Audu. He has right to contest. So, the primary election will be a tough one”.
