Kogi: Olumoroti Rejects Running Mate Offer by stabillo(m): 8:56am On Dec 03, 2015
LOKOJA —Moves by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to draft Olusola Olumoroti as the running mate to Yahaya Bello may have suffered a setback as he issaid to have rejected the offer.

This is coming on the heels of protest in Ekinrin Adde,the home town of Hon. James Faleke, running mate to the late Prince Abubakar Audu during the November 21 election.A source close to the former Mobil employee informed Vanguard that the Kabba-born politician had already turned down the offer. Though no reasonwas given for his action, it may not be unconnected with his loyalty to the Audu/Faleke ticket.A source, who craved anonymity, said all the stakeholders in the Audu/Faleke camp may have been instructed not to have anything to do with the Yahaya Bello ticket.Protest rocks Faleke’s community.

Meanwhile, Ekinrin Adde, the home town of Hon Faleke has been rocked by protests as motorists were held hostage by rampaging youths of the community.The youths are protesting against the failure of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to declare Faleke as the governor-elect of the state.One of the protesters, Ayorinde Tanimola, accused INEC of bias, saying there was no need for supplementary poll as Audu had already won the election before his death.He said: “What INEC should have done was to declare Faleke the governor-elect.

The supplementary poll slated for Saturday was a declaration of ethnic war against the Okun people of Kogi State.“It is immoral to bring Yahaya Bello, who worked against the party, to reap the work of Audu and Faleke. APC has shown that it is worse than PDP andwe will fight this case with the last drop of our blood.”The protest lasted for hours before security agents restored normalcy.

Getting a running mate will be easy.
Somewhere someplace they has to be a desperate politician who won't minding been a deputy governor.
If the governor elect is really serious about getting a running mate that should not be a problem.

I don't even know what to say again. I just tire, whenever I see politicians abuse the rules of law with impunity just to protect their own interest.

What stops Inec from declaring Audu/Falake the winners of Kogi election, when they know 40,000 votes is greater than 25,000?

Or what stops the Attorney from seeking interpretation from the Supreme Court in order to avoid confusion, disorderliness, ethnic clashes, hatred, distrust, injustice, disloyalty(to the state), marginalization, etcetera?

Many Nigerians are beginning to lose hope in..... while some have already lost hope hence the resent agitations by IPOB.

There are rules governing every organisation ,so INEC can't go against its own rule.

Can't The Yoruba part of Kogi State produce governor in Kogi State ??

Are They Not bonafide Indegenes of the state ??!

Are they just in the state as secound class indegenes ??

Are the Ebiras where Yahaya Bello hails from more entitled to the seat that the Okun/Yorubas in the state ?

Whats the political hope of the Yorubas in the so called confluence state ?!

Yorubas in Kogi and kwara Should Wake up !

We are tired of being in the North Central, if we are going to be forever marginalized, Carve us to the South west where we truly belong! Enough of using us to swell up the population and geopolitical size of the NORTH! We are not Northerners

There are A Lot of Fault lines in this country, and only a TRUE REFERENDUM can solve the problems, ans imminent danger

Plus, Must All the so Called "19 Northern states be governed by Muslims ?!"

Yahaya bello can't be kogi governor dat is what I know,he work against Audu and faleke, all the effort of faleke can't be in vain if his running mate is no more. Many of us travel from long distance country to our state to vote and we did not do that for bello but for Audu and faleke.

Ethnic bias and hypocrisy.

Audu/Falake are the true winners of the Kogi election and any illegal means being used by anyone to subvert the true mandate of the good people of Kogi State will be firmly resisted.
