Ahead of the forthcoming gubernatorial elections in Kogi state, President Bola Tinubu has urged on the people of Kogi West Senatorial District to remain peaceful and live in unity.
According to the president in brief meeting with leaders of Okun Development Association, led by Professor Micheal Ikupolati, he promised to see to their concerns as regarding marginalization.
In a statement signed by the president’s special adviser, Ajuri Ngelale, the team maintained support for the Tinubu administration.
Tinubu said, ‘‘Democracy is about horse trading, numbers, about conflicts and conflict resolution. I appreciate your leadership and your position. One of your sons, James Faleke, has worked very closely with me and I know about the issue when late Prince Audu was alive.”
‘‘But that was the way of God Almighty. He passed on and the arrangement didn’t work and there was a judgement from the Supreme Court that was the last bus stop. That brought about the present government in the State, who is also a member of our party.’’
‘‘When you talk about domination, I’ll have to dig deeper on the issues. Yes, the question of rotation was agreed by Prince Audu and some other leaders but death didn’t allow him. God Almighty knows the reasons and we cannot question him.’’
