The governor of Kogi state, Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello has moved to cement his new found friendship with his erstwhile political foe, Hon James Abiodun Faleke by inviting the latter to his second term inauguration ceremony which comes up on 27th of January 2020.
News Hub Mag! gathered that the invitation letter was released by Faleke on his WhatsApp platform while notifying stakeholders of the party and the Audu/Faleke political family of the governor’s invitation.
Hon James Faleke, who had sheath his sword after the emergence of Bello as the flagbearer of the APC in the last gubernatorial election in the state, rigorously campaigned for the re-election of governor Bello in the last Nov 16th governorship election.
Faleke had thrown his weight and influence across the state in the 2019 Kogi governorship election behind Bello and his party APC which in turn earned the party and governor, an unprecedented victory in the election.
Governor Yahaya Bello’s decision to officially invite Hon. James Faleke to his 2nd term swearing-in, was described as a show of gratitude by the governor to the member of the green chamber.
A reliable source however, said that, the mutual relationship cum understanding that currently exist between the duo, may lead to the fulfillment of the governor’s pledge of a rotational government in Kogi State.
Speculators are however of the opinion that, Hon James Abiodun Faleke will have an easy ride to becoming the next governor of Kogi State this time.
