Kogi APC Lawmakers Say Any Other Candidate That Isn’t Late Audu’s Son Will Be Removed In 2 Minutes



Eleven All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers in Kogi state have endorsed Mohammed Audu, son of the late Abubabar Audu, threatening to oust any other governor who emerges other than their choice. Maman Rabiu, a member of the Kogi state house of assembly, who spoke on behalf of the APC lawmakers, said the younger Audu has the clout of his father and is capable to lead the state.

“We present to the national leadership, Prince Mohammed Audu to replace his late father. It is not because he is the first son, but try him, he is very intelligent and equal to the task. With him, we will have the Kogi of our dream,” he said.

“It is not a threat, but we told them that we have no intention of washing our dirty linen in public. Removing somebody is just a two minutes job for us as lawmakers in the state.

“We are the legislators and have told the national chairman our position that in any case anybody is smuggled in contrary to what we present to them, we know the best way to remove him.”

Rabiu advised the party to accept its recommendation, saying James Faleke could still be retained as the deputy governorship candidate.

“We are the electorates and we know why we are here. There will be no solution to this problem without giving us listening ear.

Prince Audu was the man who went through primary before nominating Faleke as his deputy,” he said. “We are not asking Faleke to stay away from the ticket.

We equally worked with him during the campaigns. What we are saying is that it should be Mohammed Audu/Faleke ticket. The two of them must work together.” ?The Kogi governorship election was declared inconclusive on Sunday, the same day Audu died.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had requested APC to send a substitute candidate, and fixed December 5 for a supplementary election, but the party is yet to present any candid?ate.

On Thursday, Faleke, the late Audu’s? running mate, asked INEC to declared him governor, just as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) urged the electoral umpire to declare Idris Wada, its candidate winner of the November 21 governorship election.
