Lawmaker Gives Condition For Solving Kogi APC Crisis

Governor Yahaya Bello

By Ogbolu George

A member of the Federal House of Representatives, Hon. Hassan Atayoma Omale, has said that if certain issues in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State are addressed, reconciliation is possible.

Speaking with Daily Post in Abuja, Omale said those issues were the payment of Kogi workers’ salaries, dissolution of the state executive and consideration of the sizeable number of those who worked for APC in the state.

While praising the reconciliation committee set up by John Oyegun-led National Executive Committee of the party, he noted that the development was rather late.

Political appointments

Omale maintained that those who worked with the late Abubakar Audu must be given political appointments by governor Yahaya Bello.

“It was late Prince Abubakar Audu group who worked for the success of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi state which Bello is enjoying and some of those people must be considered for appointments.

“Moreso, the state APC is under imminent collapse if workers’ salaries remain unpaid for any reason because these are people who voted for the party,” he said.

Bello’s cabinet

Omale accused the governor of appointing members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and non-party  into his cabinet.

The lawmaker, however, confirmed that Prince Tony Momoh-led reconciliatory committee which was set up last week has reached out to aggrieved lawmakers from the state.
