Lawmakers on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have threatened to impeach anybody candidate impose to replace late prince Abubakar Audu by the leadership of the party, saying that it is Mohammad Audu or nobody.
Addressing newsmen yesterday at the party national Secretariat, Alfa Momoh Rabiu, who spoke on behalf of the state lawmakers, warned APC not to make mistake of bringing anyone else apart from the son of the late Audu.
Hon. Rabiu said: “Based on our discussion, we have taken a decision and taken our resolution to the national chairman. We are overwhelmed by the response from them them, but we are still waiting for a safe landing so that Kogi will not be doomed.
“We told the national chairman that on no account should anybody be smuggled in to occupy that position which we worked for in conjunction with the ate Audu without who, there will be no APC in Kogi state.
“We present to the national leadership, Prince Mohammed Audu to replace his late father. It is not because he is the first son,but try him, he is very intelligent and equal to the task. With him, we will have the Kogi of our dream.
“We also resolved and we will appreciate if the leadership will understand that we came to complain to them with pains and tell them our position because of the commitment of our leader and we don’t want Kogi to be left in the hands of the PDP any longer.
“We are the legislators and have told the national chairman our position that in any case anybody is smuggled in contrary to what we present to them, we know the best way to remove him. It is not a threat, but we told them that we have no intention of washing our dirty linen in public. Removing somebody is just a two minutes job for us as lawmakers in the state. We want the change we worked for and we want Kogi to be part of the moving train.
“We are the electorates and we know why we are here. There will be no solution to this problem without giving us listening ear. Prince Audu was the man who went through primary before nominating Faleke as his deputy. We are not asking Faleke to stay away from the ticket. We equally worked with him during the campaigns. What we are saying is that it should be Mohammed Audu/Faleke ticket. The two of them must work together.”
