Kogi elders urge Faleke to accept verdict

26 December 2015, 12:01

Lokoja - Kogi West Elders Committee, a powerful socio-political leadership forum representing the interest of the Kogi West people of the state, has urged the Deputy Governor-Elect, James Abiodun Faleke to accept the outcome of the Kogi governorship election, reports Vanguard.

Rising from an extra-ordinary meeting on Thursday, the elders said Faleke should accept the outcome as God’s way of answering the prayers of the Kogi West people for power rotation.

The committee said it was prepared to prevail on Faleke to work harmoniously with the Governor-Elect, Yahaya Bello to effect the desired change in Kogi State.
