Hon Abiodun Faleke who refused to be the running mate to Yahaya Bello in the Kogi supplementary election showed up in the House of Representatives, where he took part in the legislative business of the day.
Faleke who rejected being declared deputy governor-elect of Kogi State after the death of his principal, Prince Audu currently represents Ikeja Federal Constituency in the 8th House of Representatives where he also chairs the Committee on Customs and Excise.
He came to the House spotting a white flowing ‘Agbada’ and a hand-made red cap, amid cheers from his colleagues in the House as he approached the chair where he held a brief chat with Speaker Yakubu Dogara before resuming his seat.
It will be recalled he rejected his re-nomination as deputy governorship candidate to the eventual winner and governor-elect, AlhajiYahaya Bello and has since gone to court asking to be declare governor-elect instead.
In the suit, Faleke argues that both the INEC and the APC erred by, first, declaring the election inconclusive when the circumstances leading to cancellation of votes in most of the affected polling units bothered on over-voting and refusal to use card reader which amounted to violation of the Electoral Act of 2010.
He is also faulting APC’s decision to substitute late Audu with Yahaya Bello when he (Faleke) who participated in all the stages of the election with the late candidate should have been the replacement as against Yahaya Bello who did not participate in all the stages of the election apart from the primaries where he came second.
His camp also accused Yahaya Bello of antiparty activities in the build up to the polls, saying that Bello worked against the interest of APC, which accounted for why the party even lost his own polling booth in Okene.
