Faleke blasts kogi APC over Betrayal of Campaign Promises


 Member representing Ikeja Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, Hon. James Abiodun Faleke, has condemned  the All Progressive Congress ( APC)  in Kogi State for its failure to keep campaign promises.

The Leadership of APC of Ijumu LGA of Kogi State had accused Faleke  of  anti-party activities in the state during the general elections. Faleke who was a running mate to the late Prince Abubakar Audu, the governorship candidate of the APC in the November 21st, 2015 governorship election in the State, hails from Ekirin-adde in Ijumu LGA of Kogi State.

Faleke who bemoaned the alleged criticism by the APC described  their grouse as a ranting of failed people  stressing that the party failed for non-commitment to campaign promises. 

 Faleke urged the party executives to do a self-examination and find out the real reasons why the APC lost to other parties in the area. “Was our contribution to APC victory recognized by the beneficiaries in the state? The so called Executives in Ijumu lacked capacity to think and mobilize the people because of failed promises. “So, if the people voted for another party while I was busy campaigning for my elections in my constituency in Lagos, what is my business in APC Kabba Ijumu federal constituency. My shadow will continue to hunt them until the people are happy. “When government takes the  people for granted, there is always a judgement day at the polls.” He said 

He reminded them that when good governance eludes the people,  revolution becomes imminent as displayed by the voting patterns of the  people in some states of the country. The lawmaker said for  his foray into politics in kogi  State in 2015, he had  within three months, turned things around in favour of APC.

 In an open letter addressed to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu and APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, a copy  made available to Journalists in Lokoja. The letter which  was jointly signed by Ijumu LGA APC Chairman, S.B. Abejide, Secretary, Mallam Yekini Agunbiade, Youth Leader, Ibitayo Kehinde and Ijumu LGA Administrator, Taufiq Isah.

The APC leaders had accused Faleke of sponsoring House of Representatives candidate under the platforms of African Democratic Congress (ADC) in Kogi West senatorial district during the National Assembly election.

The party leaders said they have clear evidence that Faleke is a strong backbone behind the activities of ADC in the state and equally worked against APC candidates from West senatorial district in the just concluded elections.

“We urge the APC in Lagos, National headquarters in Abuja to watch closely what goes on as we are happy this happened to erode every doubt about what we had already known because Faleke has been the sole sponsor of ADC in Kogi state. “We therefore call on the leadership of the party to as a matter of urgency investigate according to the rules and regulations of the party in order to avoid future occurrence”, part of the letter said.
