Ahead of August 2019 Kogi state governorship primary election of the All Progressivea Congress (APC), former running-mate to late Abubakar Audu and a Lagos state House of Representative member-elect, James Faleke, has joined the race to replace governor Yahaya Bello.
Blueprint can report authoritatively that Faleke’s governorship posters have already flooded the national secretariat of the APC, located at Blantyre street, Wuse 11, Abuja.
When our correspondent visited the party house on Wednesday, the collourful posters were already strategically pasted from the main entrance round about the building.
Although the national secretariat seemed deserted but few staff and other party members around appeared happy about the development with some of them seen in groups discussing the matter.
A senior members of the party who spoke with our correspondent on condition of anonymity described the move as a welcome development.
