The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has disgraced one Prof. Sule Bello who approached the commission’s headquarters in Abuja and introduced himself as the interim National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).
Reliable sources from the commission had narrated that Sule Bello went to the commission’s headquarters last week claiming that the stakeholders of the PRP had sacked Alhaji Falalu Bello from the position of PRP National Chairman and appointed him as the interim National Chairman of the party.
The top officials of the INEC did ask Sule Bello that who were the stakeholders and their respective positions. The question that Sule Bello couldn’t answer. They also asked him whether the PRP Constitution empowered the so-called stakeholders to remove or appoint the National Chairman of the party. The question that Sule Bello still couldn’t answer. In addition, the management of INEC asked Sule Bello whether they invited the INEC or had a presence of INEC officials during the so-called stakeholders meeting. The question that Sule Bello couldn’t answer again.
The INEC management finally informed Sule Bello that the commission is a serious institution that does not entertain frivolity or stupidity from anybody. It affirmed that Alhaji Falalu Bello remains the National Chairman of the party considering the fact that the commission did not receive any communication from the PRP that indicated a change of leadership in the party.
Our correspondent gathered that the INEC management had warned Sule Bello to stop parading himself as the National Chairman of the PRP henceforth.
Angry with the questions asked by the INEC management and unsavoury treatment received from them, Sule Bello stormed out of the INEC headquarters in a very sad mood.
Sule Bello, who went to the Commission in company of one lanky anonymous person, has been parading himself as the interim National Chairman of the PRP despite several warnings from relevant authorities and persons admonishing him to desist from such act as it is tantamount to a criminal impersonation, a crime that may land him in jail.
A further check by our correspondent on the INEC website had shown that Alhaji Falalu Bello, OFR is still the National Chairman of the PRP while Mr. Babatunde Alli is the National Secretary of the party.
Alhaji Falalu Bello has become the National Chairman of the PRP in September, 2018, following the step down of late Malam Balarabe Musa from the position.
Prior to his ascension to the position of PRP National Chairman, Alhaji Falalu Bello was once the Managing Director/CEO of Unity Bank Plc.
A 1978 Law graduate from Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Falalu Bello started his Legal career with the Kaduna State Government as Magistrate II and subsequently moved to Northern Nigeria Investment Company Limited as Senior Executive/Acting Company Secretary.
He was later appointed Kaduna State Government Commissioner for Trade and Industry. He was appointed Managing Director/CEO of Habib Nigeria Bank Limited in 1994 until 1998 when he was appointed Managing Director/CEO of Intercity Bank Plc. He resigned as Vice Chairman/Managing Director in 2001. In 2001, he was appointed Managing Director of Nigerian Agricultural Development Bank Limited.
Alhaji Falalu Bello holds the National honour of the Officer of the Federal Republic (OFR) and the traditional title of Danmasanin Zazzau.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared as illegal the purported 2nd National Delegates Conference held last Saturday by Sule Bello and his hoodlums in the Zaria town of Kaduna State.
The top management of the commission disclosed that invitation was extended to them by Sule Bello requesting them to witness the conference but they refused to honour the invitation considering the fact that the purported conference is nothing but an utter illegality.
The commission further revealed that to the best of its knowledge, Alhaji Falalu Bello, OFR is the authentic National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).
It could be recalled that Sule Bello had convened a conference that he tagged 2nd National Delegates Conference in Zaria last Saturday. The conference, which had few people in attendance, was not witnessed by INEC officials or any security agents.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been making it clear that Sule Bello is not the National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party.
On its own part, the leadership of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) had stated that Sule Bello had never been a member or stakeholder of the party at any level or time.
Further checks by our correspondent at the INEC headquarters and its website had shown that Alhaji Falalu Bello, OFR is the National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) while Mr. Babatunde Francis Alli is the National Secretary of the party.
