According to him, Tinubu should not meddle into the affairs of Kogi politics, threatening to work against the party if Hon Faleke is not replaced with one of the aspirants who contested the party’s primary.
Akinola also chided the party’s candidate, Prince Abubakar Audu for acceding to the choice of Tinubu who is resident in Lagos and has lost touch with his people at home.
“We expect Audu to pick his running mate from among the aspirants that lost out to him, especially from the central senatorial zone and not from the west but to our surprise, Tinubu gave him someone and he accepted him.
“Tinubu should stay out of Kogi politics; we shall resist Faleke as deputy governor. We advice Audu to change him immediately or we will work against him in the general election”.
