Zoning Kogi Guber to West Would be Just, Equitable – Faleke 

A member of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the national assembly, Hon James Abiodun Faleke has said that zoning of the next governorship seat to Kogi West is the just and equitable thing to do.

This was contained in a statement issued on Sunday and made available to journalists in Lokoja.

According to Faleke, Kogi Central by the end of the tenure of Yahaya Bello would have been in the saddle for 8 years, uninterrupted.

The statement read as follows, “For equity, justice and fairness, it is only reasonable to lend my voice to the call by many that our great party, the All Progressives Congress should ensure the candidate for the Governorship election emerged democratically from Kogi West.

“For a heterogeneous State such as Kogi State, giving all parts of the state a sense of belonging is key to peaceful coexistence among the several ethnic groups in the state.

“For more than 16 years, our brothers from the Eastern Senatorial District held sway in Lugard House through Late Prince Abubakar Audu, Alhaji Ibrahim Idris and Captain Idris Wada respectively.

“Kogi Central by the end of the tenure of Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello would have been in the saddle for 8 years, uninterrupted. While not discounting the right of those concerned to contest for any office, I believe that the time has come to be just and fair to all.

“The clamour for power shift pre-2015 by Kogi West and Kogi Central was to correct the marginalization of the two Districts in the Governorship seat.

“My position is not premised on any sense of entitlement but on the ideals of equity and fairness which late Abubakar Audu preached before his untimely death.”
