Photo: Faleke picks late Prince Abubaka Audu's son as his deputy

Image
APC Deputy Governorship candidate in the Kogi state November 21st governorship election, James Abiodun Faleke says he's picked late Audu Abubakar's son, Mohammed to be his deputy governor once he is declared governor by INEC. Faleke said this while speaking to some of his supporters who had gathered at the home of Late Prince Audu in Kogi this morning. He is pictured above with Abubakar Audu's son, Mohammed. Faleke is calling for the cancellation of the supplementary election which is being planned by INEC this Saturday December 5th. INEC had declared the November 21st inconclusive and ordered a supplementary election by December 5th. This has caused a division in APC as the party has refused to field Faleke as its candidate for the supplementary election. Yahaya Bello who came second in the party's governorship primary that produced Audu Abubakar, has been asked to replace Audu in the supplementary election, a decision Faleke is against.

Jose Mourinho blasts Drogba for saying Chelsea team lacks leaders

One of Chelsea's greatest striker ever, Drogba at the launch of new book, Commitment, gave an interview to Mirror Sport in which he claimed the new generation needed to show more leadership qualities during the club’s crisis. Drogba said: “Yes, JT (John Terry) is still there but on your own it is very difficult. Other players have to come up with this mentality, you are not born with it. You build it. Maybe you have it in you but you build it.” Reacting to the interview,  Mourinho said; "When you speak because you want to sell books, I don’t read. I don’t read. I like good interviews. I like interviews from big guys like Didier with good journalists, newspapers or television. But this is not an interview. It was to sell books. "It doesn’t disappoint me. It was just the reali

The Luther star admitted he was quite relaxed at the top of the waterfall, falsely believing he was safe as he waited for the crew to set up for the scene.  He said: 'The stunt co-ordinator says, "Listen everyone this is a waterfall, that’s a 90, 100 foot drop down there and the ground is very slippery, just be careful!" 'I put my foot on this rock just to hang out and chill out while they were setting up and as I’m doing that
