4 Politicians Jostle to Replace Late Audu Abubakar
Nigeria – According to a report from Leadership newspaper, APC might pick one out of these four politicians to replace late Audu Abubakar for the Kogi governorship elections.
- James Ocholi (SAN)
- Isah Jibrin Echocho
- Hon James Faleke
- Alhaji Yahaya Bello
While Faleke is the late Audu’s running mate who would have automatically become the governor if INEC had not declared last Saturday’s governorship poll inconclusive, Yahaya and Ocholi were aspirants in the August governorship primary of the APC. Yahaya came second to Audu in the keenly contested primary election.
Echocho was one of the aspirants in the governorship primary of the rival PDP but switched to the APC after losing to the incumbent, Governor Idris Wada.
