As the political crisis rocking Kogi State following the outcome of November 21st governorship poll has refused to die down,
A group, Kogi Patriots, has rejected a reconciliatory committee set up by the All Progressive Congress (APC) to resolve the crisis surrounding the Nov. 21 governorship election.
In a statement by the group on Thursday, jointly signed by the national chairman, Dr Ben Agama, the national coordinator, Engr. Joseph Ahmed, as well as Mr. Tunde Badmus, the group described as laughable, the party’s national leadership purported setting up of a committee to reconcile the supposed aggrieved parties, knowing too well that the only acceptable condition for reconciliation is to return “the stolen mandate of Hon. James Faleke who was the joint holder of the mandate given to Prince Abubakar Audu.”
According to the grou, with the number of votes and local governments won by the Audu/Faleke ticket, it was loud and clear who the state wanted as their governor and deputy respectively.
The group, therefore, threatened that if the party fails to return Faleke’s mandate, it should prepare for unimaginable consequences in the future elections.
