This indeed shows the quality leadership in the party and it’s ability to uphold the rule of law. Today the people of Kogi state can proudly say APC is the party for justice, equity and fairness. The death of our icon came to us as a shock and we can but accept the fact that the prince of niger is no more.
“Sir, it will be recalled that your party has put in place mechanism to resolve all grievances, but unfortunately Hon. Abiodun Faleke neglect all overtures made by the party to him and has since proceed to court. This is in violation of the party constitution and must be made to face the music. The era of people disobeying the party is gone, no man should be greater than an institution that produce him. The supremacy of the party must be respected.
“Honestly, it’s quite clear that Hon. Faleke has already join the opposition by dragging the party to court. APC must not condone this act of indiscipline and sheer arrogance. Hon. Abiodun Faleke should be shown the exit door from the party, to allow him continue his anti-party activities with the PDP and leave APC in peace. His continue stay in the party will cause division for the party and will distract the incoming government in the state from delivering the dividend of democracy to the good people of Kogi state.
“Sir, the failure of APC to act now will be a big slap to the party elders and it’s constitution. We must not allow individuals hold our great party to ransom for any reason, your urgent action to instill discipline will be highly valued now”.
