06 August 2016, 14:00

Abuja - Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has invited James Faleke, who rejected to serve as his deputy to come and work with him for the development of state, reports Thisday.

Bello extended the hands of fellowship to Faleke on Friday during his visit to the State House, Abuja.

Faleke is laying claim to the governorship seat claiming that the election had been concluded before, the All Progressives Congress’ candidate, Abubakar Audu died.

Faleke, who lost his appeal to unseat Bello at the Cout of Appeal has vowed to take the case to the Supreme Court according to News 24.

But Bello on Friday appealed to Faleke to come and join hands with him to lift Kogi State.

He said this was not the first time he would be extended olive branch to his opponents.

Bello said he inherited Kogi in a state of mess when he came on board, noting that Faleke must join him to save the state from the claws of those who had held it down over the years.

He commended the judiciary for upholding his election
