Kogi Will be Rescued From Maladministration – Faleke
Bayo Oyewale,Lokoja
Piqued by the current woes facing the people of Kogi State,the former running mate to late Prince Abubakar Audu in 2015 governorship election in Kogi State, Chief James Faleke has said that he along with others will rescue the State again from maladministration in 2019.
Faleke   who made this know while speaking at his country home in Ekirin-AdDr,Ijumu local government council of the state during his birthday  celebration his birthday stressed that 
never before has Kogi State witnessed the maladministration.
"we are witnessing, never before had Kogi ever received the amount of money that we have received,he stated 
The federal lawmaker stated 
that since the present administration came on board each Local Government in Kogi State has collected minimum of N2.1b from January to December, each month, unfortunately our people are still in abject poverty.
"Unfortunately our infrastructure are in complete decay, unfortunately salary has become a mirage, unfortunately Kogi State happened to be the first State that a civil servant on level 16 committed suicide, so many of our people have died since this administration came on board.
He noted' although he is in the same party with Kogi State governor,  Alhaji Yahaya Bello the does not mean he should keep quiet to maladministration.
"We are saying the government must change for the better if it wants to continue to be in office because it is only by the will of the people and when these people are not happy, it becomes a problem.
"I have heard the Governor Yahaya Bello compares himself to President Muhammodu Buhari and I have said it openly and I am saying it again that President Buhari, in character, behaviour, in his observance of religious ethics, in his conduct, relationship with people he is the complete opposite of the Governor.
"When the President was the chairman of PTF he had every opportunity to own petrol station all over the country but he did have one filling station, that is a man of character.
"Throughout his stay as PTF boss and as former military Head of State he only own one bungalow in his home town; a three bedroom bungalow, he never lived a lavished life. So if anybody says he is emulating the President, that person must be of good conduct, that person must behave the President behave in terms of payment of salary for workers.
"When the President came on board he gave all the Governors to pay salary of workers, Kogi got N20b as the first tranche unfortunately till today our people are still in abject poverty and Kogi happened to be a civil service State.
"Hence when the civil servants are not paid the petty traders would not have any business because their business depend on the salary of civil servants to survive.
"So it has a multiplier effect in the negative perspective but I assure you that change will come. I want to implore you, don't be afraid, we hear they have bought guns for their vigilante to intimidate people during election but God who made it possible for those guns to be manufactured will silence those guns at that time.
"I tell you on the election day it is going to be your ballot paper and the voters card, those are what will decide your future. If you want the situation to remain the way it is, the card is in your hand, if you want to change for the future the card is also in your hand,he said
