The crisis rocking Ojodu APC chapter on the forthcoming local government election took another dimension over the weekend when LAISEC released the guidelines for the election, Mr Abiodun James Faleke a member of house of Representatives representing Ikeja consistency 1, who was also the running mate to the deceased APC’s governorship candidate in Kogi, Prince Abubakar Audu is hell-bent on imposing Mr Julius Oloro on the executives as the party chairmanship candidate come July for the LG election.
Our source revealed that hon. Faleke has promised to go to any length in other to make sure Oloro retain the seat. According to a reliable source Faleke has started dashing out money out to make sure executives go against the wish of the people in other to satisfy his selfish interest.
Meanwhile, one of the party executives told The City Pulse News that Faleke said he is working on Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and party instructions that 19 former chairman with first term should return unopposed without primaries, a statement the party chairman Chief Henry Ajomale outrightly denied by saying ‘ that is not in the party constitution there must be a primary and party members must be allowed to decide on who they want as there representative in any political office’.
Furthermore, he said Grassroot politics must be strictly adhered too and protected so that the party can maintain its standard’. Our source revealed.
However, the youth in Ojodu who are presently at loggerheads with him (FALEKE) over on his plans to impose Hon. Julius Oloro on them as the LG chairman said may be he has forgotten how he took the party to court in Kogi over the issue of imposition. They warned the party leaders, excos in federal, state, local government level to please tell Faleke to resist from imposing Oloro on them if he wants peace to reign in Ojodu that the party may be heading to precipice if this crisis is left unaddressed.
Over 20,000 Ojodu youths has promise to support PDP if APC party leaders made a silly mistake of presenting Oloro again.
One of the major player in Ojodu politics, a strong member of APC has tagged Faleke as ‘ Agent of the devil sent to destroy APC in Ojodu ‘. He said ‘ I am highly dissatisfied that Faleke can represent Oloro again, even if the party or Asiwaju has said that, he is in the right place to tell them the situation of things in the community, that to sustain Grassroot politics in Ojodu Oloro should not be represented again and suggest a primary’ .
Moreso, he said ‘ why I tagged Faleke agent of the devil sent to destroy Ojodu APC is that Faleke has since moved his party membership to Kogi and he still wants to be controlling us here in Lagos , that is not possible , you can’t eat your cake and have it. On this issue I am going to throw my weight behind the party excos, electorates and the youths in Ojodu and I am very sure Asiwaju will also want to protect the grassroot’. He said.
The old man also advice Faleke to re-instate the youth leader of his ward Mr Akeem whom he Suspend right inside his house with 8 out of 23 votes.
